18 Jan 2017 21:24 | Author: orangebear597 | Category: Resume sur la guerre de troie naura pas lieu

Drug addiction is a social evil. It has been prevalent in society from time immemorial. There are a variety of drugs which are used in various forms. A drug addict becomes a drug dependent. He cannot live without drugs. It is a form of psychological conditioning that implies a set of mental and behavioural responses to drugs and related stimuli that result from repeated reinforcement produced by the use of drugs.

It implies physical, psychological and psychic dependence on the tolerance of a drug with a tendency to take more and more drugs. The World Health Organisation has defined drug abuse as a state of periodic, chronic intoxication, detrimental to the individual and to the society, produced by repeated consumption of drugs either natural or synthetic. In other words, the growing urge results in increase of doses.

    Yes---make sure to include each one of those "addictions" in your thesis statement in your intro paragraph. The take each one & form a topic sentence that will be the opening of your 3 body paragraphs. Finally wrap it up in your conclusion paragraph by restating your thesis statement. Good Job!

    Drugs are chemicals. Different drugs, because of their chemical structures, can affect the body in different ways. In fact, some drugs can even change a person''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s body and brain in ways that last long after the person has stopped taking drugs, maybe even permanently.

    Depending on the drug, it can enter the human body in a number of ways, including injection, inhalation, and ingestion. The method of how it enters the body impacts on how the drug affects the person. For example: injection takes the drug directly into the blood stream, providing more immediate effects; while ingestion requires the drug to pass through the digestive system, delaying the effects.

    Drug addiction refers to the compulsive and repeated use of increasing amounts of drugs with the appearance of withdrawal symptoms when drug use ceases. While the specific causes of drug addiction are not known, genetic, psychological and environmental factors are thought to play a significant role. Rather than a single cause of drug addiction, it is likely multiple factors lead to drug addiction in any given person.

    Some drug addicts also identify drug use and ignorance as a cause of drug addiction. Often, if a person is dealing with pain-management issues, the drug they receive, like oxycodone, can be very addictive. The ignorance of the drug''''''''''''''''s addiction potential, along with the physical pain of the condition, becomes a cause of drug addiction.

    In the United States, an estimated 67% of people aged 12 and older consumed alcohol in 2014, while about 6.4% of people met the criteria for alcoholism. 1 Additionally, more than 10% of people aged 12 and older reported past-month use of illegal drugs in 2014. 1 Of those approximately 27 million illicit drug users , 7.1 million people met the criteria for addiction. 1

    Though the short- and long-term effects of drug and alcohol abuse may vary from person to person, clearly many people currently suffer from the effects of abusing drugs and alcohol every day. Factors affecting the exact symptoms that are experienced may depend on a person’s age, gender, individual physiology, genetic make-up, and mental health condition.

    Although it is not yet recognized by the American Medical Association as a diagnosable disorder, video game addiction is a very real problem for many people. According to the University of New Mexico, recent studies suggest that 6 to 15 percent of all gamers exhibit signs that could be characterized as addiction. Though this disorder can have significant consequences to those suffering from it, its signs and symptoms can sometimes be very difficult to recognize.

    There are two major types of video games and therefore two major types of video game addictions. Standard video games are generally designed to be played by a single player and involve a clear goal or mission, such as rescuing a princess. The addiction in these games is often related to completing that mission or beating a high score or preset standard.

    The cause of drug abuse is not fully known but likely include genetic predisposition, co-occurring conditions and environmental circumstances. Drug use and experimentation is common in pre-adolescents and adolescents, but only a small percentage of those users will go on to abuse drugs.

    While many people use drugs, only a small percentage abuse drugs, but it has been noted drug abuse often runs in families, suggesting genetics is one of the causes of drug abuse. While having parents that abuse drugs puts a child at risk, it is possible for the child to grow up without drug abuse problems. It is also possible to abuse drugs without having any other drug abuser in the family. It is clear genetics alone is not the cause of drug abuse.

    It would be interesting if you could find some biochemical support for this thesis. As an addictions specialist, what I would be most interested in is the person s control over their addiction, and the degree to which it impairs functioning in other areas of their life (peer relationships, vocation, health, other leisure, etc.) Always interesting to me that we can be so hurt by the things that start out feeling so good.
