I’ve lived with addicts my entire life. My mom was really bad when I was younger, and we had CPS in and out of our house for years. Why do people use drugs like that? I just want to understand her a little better.

For some people it starts out as something recreational, for others it can be to try and hide the pain of trauma or other issues. Addiction really is a disease, and it happens differently for everyone. You may want to consider treatment for yourself, just to cope with some of the things that you went through.

This drug abuse article > is a great read on why people take drugs. Most people take drugs to feel good. Drugs make your brain produce intense feelings of pleas-ure. Some people take drugs to do bet-ter, they think this improves their focus. And some people take drugs just out of sheer curiosity or social pressure. Teens are particularly at risk because of peer pressure can be very strong.

I’m really sorry that you had to live like that. Hopefully things are better now that you’re older? Most of the time people abuse drugs because they need to numb themselves from something. She may have been a victim of abuse herself when she was younger. Some people keep using because they’re afraid of withdrawal symptoms. It’s different for everyone.

People abuse drugs for many different reasons. The problem is that many peo-ple become addicted after just one use because of how powerful the drugs are. I think less people would abuse them if they were not so addictive.

I abused drugs for 11 years of my life. The main reason why I have come to un-derstand is because I was physically abused, beat if you will when I was a child, I then started smoking pot which helped me feel better, and I just needed help to quit

Usually drug usage starts out just to try it ya know? You are a teenager and just experimenting with stuff. However, what happens in the addicts mind is that they have a reaction to that drug. They like the way it feels and they want to keep producing that effect over and and over. They want that same euphoria that was first experienced. I know that is what I wanted. I also wanted to escape the hell I was living in and drugs were my way to do so. Then that drug takes over your day to day life because you have become dependent on it. It doesn't matter who you ignore or hurt in the process, the addict is in fight or flight mode.

I think people abuse drugs for all differ-ent kinds of reasons maybe they were abused as a child, or maybe their best friend started using.
