Drug Addiction: An Uncontrolled Epidemic in India; Contributing Factors and the Responsibility of Society
For a very long time, people have been using the substance for a wide variety of reasons, including recreation, relaxation, sleep, excitement, and many more. At first, individuals experiment with drugs like alcohol, cigarettes, cannabis, ecstasy, cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, amphetamines, or illicit narcotics for their psychoactive effects. However, with time, they develop a habitual and dependent relationship with these substances. According to my internal logic and external observations, if you question a drug user, "how do you become a drug addict?" The vast majority of those who use drugs say they first tried them among friends or family members or in a committed relationship. They try it the first time out of curiosity or because someone makes them, but eventually they start to rely on it. The pressure of others might bring you down in this dark world. Addiction runs in families, so someone who has a history of it in their own blood may be more susceptible to catching the bug and spreading it to others. A solid social support system is crucial. Causes of drug abuse and dependence, and society's responsibility to combat this problem. Drugs like heroin and marijuana have structural similarities with neurotransmitters. The human brain produces these neurotransmitters spontaneously. This commonality allows the medications to trick human brain receptors and stimulate nerve cells in ways that cause them to transmit erroneous information. Methamphetamine and cocaine, in particular, stimulate nerve cells, causing them to secrete vast quantities of neurotransmitters. Additionally, they may inhibit the regular recycling of these substances in the brain. The signal between neurons must be cut off at a normal level of production. In this study, we look at the causes of drug abuse and the role that society plays in this problem.
