Humans have a nature to attain curiosity , some time having curiosity is a good thing. It makes us to go beyond the knowledge which we already have, It makes us to explore and experience new things in life. As everything bad choices of curiosity may also lead us to the worst things.
Having curiosity about anything is good but when that thing makes us unhealthy and worthless for the society then it becomes bad.
One of the these kind of curiosity we can see in our nation is drugs. One of a session held in our college #SCIT about Drugs abuses and the problem our nation facing today inspire to write about it and share this with you all.
From north to south from east coast to west coast of India you may find people (mainly young) those who are addicted to drugs. As the drug epidemic continues to painstakingly seep into the country’s social and cultural aspects, drug abuse naturally trickles into our younger generation – a generation refusing to be left out. Making up one-fifth of the population, 15-24 year-old carry with them India’s future. The youth of our nation will eventually determine the country’s moral, political, and social persuasions. Bearing the burden of a densely populated country like India is no small task. And drug abuse does nothing to lighten the load. Usually it starts off innocently enough.Children grow older and reach the teenage and young adult stages of life. With age, the parents’ influence often diminishes, and as part of life’s natural progression, youngsters are influenced more and more by their peers. Lets throw some light on the the points why this happen.
As with many other conditions and diseases, vulnerability to addiction differs from person to person. Our genes, mental health, family and social environment all play a role in addiction.
Risk factors that increase vulnerability include:
- Family history of addiction
- Abuse, neglect, or other traumatic experiences in childhood
- Mental disorders such as depression and anxiety
- Early use of drugs
- Method of administration—smoking or injecting a drug may increase its addictive potential
Currently in India more youngsters discover themselves addicted to drugs than ever before. As a result, De-addiction centers are incorporating “youth specific” programs into their centers. These youth rehabilitation opportunities can be very beneficial, and often make strides towards a future of total abstinence. To get rid of it there are many options to choose to go to rehab, rely on self-help programs, get therapy, or take a self-directed treatment approach, support is essential.
