People Taking Drugs
My paper will be discussing why people take drugs and anyone that I know of with an addition of prone personalities. Also what is indicated about additive personalities?
There are a number of reasons why people do drugs, because they say it makes them feel better, they may do it to please others, some people do drugs because they are stressed out or depressed from family problems or marital problems. Most people do drugs just to fit in or experiment. These people fail to realize the effects these drugs caused. They can have them do things that they shouldn’t be doing, but they don’t realize the wrongdoing until they sober up and find themselves in jail or prison.
I know of several people with a prone personality. They act like they have to have these drugs every day, anytime of the day. These people will actually sell their household items, personal items, cars and even go out and steal to purchase these drugs. They just don’t care or don’t have anything to live for, they are just useless. Only if these drugs users would just get themselves on the right track, because these drugs are going to kill them or just mess them up mentally.
Medical literature indicates that these addictive personalities tend to display certain characteristics more strongly than others; people drink alcohol to escape frustration or pain. Some researchers think that certain personality traits might predict when a person has a higher risk at becoming addicted. They also indicate of mental disturbances that involves antisocial personality disorder and depression. (HJ Eysenk-1997)
