Why are people drug addicts?

Some common answers…

Answer #1

Why some people get addicted and why some dont isnt completely clearly understood… Two people in the same situation using the same drug with the same frequency, and one will get addicted and one wont. And no one knows why. A lot of it has to do with the brain and genetics. Some people are thought to be born more suseptible to alcoholism. Doesnt mean they will all become alcoholics, but under the right circumstances, they might… I guess the easier question is why do people use drugs and why do they abuse them… People start on drugs for a lot of reasons, peer pressure, curiosity, experimentation, they get a thrill out of high risk situations, to feel self confident, to relax, to feel good, and I personally think the biggest reason people use and then continue to abuse drugs is a form of self medication… they have mental disorders like depression, or bipolar or something else and they use alcohol and other drugs to cope with how they are feeling… Usually this gets away from them and they become physically addicted…

Answer #2

people do drugs to spiritually free themselves and find out who they truely r of course you should be responsible about it

Answer #3

Because some drugs gets you addicted the very first time you use it, Like meth. Even if it doesn’t benefit you, the physical addiction is so strong you cannot stop.

But marijuana seems to be the only mental addiction that I know of. It calms people down I think it is a good thing
