When a person takes a drug, most drugs, what happens is it cuts off the communication in this central nervous system. That’s one of the reasons drugs will kill pain and will relax you because this nice smooth flow all the way through the body is actually stopped or cut off at some point. So the benefit of the drug looks like, well I’m relaxed for a little while or I have no more pain and sometimes that is necessary, but that’s at the expense of your nervous system that gets cut off more and more and more the more the person uses the drug.
This central nervous system leads to all your senses. It leads to your eyes, it leads to your smell, every sense you have, touch, feel, everything until after a while, those senses are cut off throughout the entire body.
And that basically is what drugs really do to the person’s senses.
So, Why do People take drugs??
Actually there is a very, very important reason why everyone takes drugs.
Drugs relieve a person of an unwanted condition. That can be almost any unwanted condition.
That could be an unwanted condition like pain. You see a person take pain killers. He’s relieving pain.
Some people smoke marijuana to relax themselves. So that means they must be under some kind of stress or a little nervous otherwise the drug wouldn’t relieve that condition.
Most drugs are what call fat soluble substances are. In other words, they mix with fat.
If you took, let’s say frozen orange juice and mixed it with water, you stirred it enough, it would go into a mixture. That’s because that orange juice is a water soluble substance.
Most drugs, let’s take THC, tetrahydrocannabinol in marijuana. THC is a very, very, very fat soluble substance as is LSD, heroin, many, many other drugs.
So if you tried to dump that substance in water, you could stir until your hand fell off, and it will never ever mix. It always separates or floats to the surface of the water.
So this is what happens when a person ingest the drug. No matter how it taken. If it’s smoked, if it’s injected, if it’s swallowed in a pill form, it doesn’t matter. It always ends up in the person blood stream.
So watch what happens. There’s the person’s blood stream. Here’s the fat tissue, which is butted right up against the person’s blood stream. And here comes the drug. As the drug moves through the person’s blood stream, because the fat tissue is so close, that fat tends to draw that drug into it almost like a magnet. Little tiny drug residues. Little dark bits and pieces of that drug just start lodging or sticking more and more and more in the fatty tissue of the body until after a while, honestly, this guys kind of like a walking drug store. He’s got all these drugs that are stuck inside his body.
When this is circulating in a person’s body, he has almost a continual destruction of nutrients in his body. So he has to eat better, he has to try to take vitamins, anything to keep his health up.
When you’re struggling with drug addiction, sobriety can seem like an impossible goal. But recovery is never out of reach, no matter how hopeless your situation seems. Change is possible with the right treatment and support, and by addressing the root cause of your addiction. Don’t give up—even if you’ve tried and failed before. The road to recovery often involves bumps, pitfalls, and setbacks. But by examining the problem and thinking about change, you’re already on your way.
