I understand that people use drugs, I know people drink, its not something I would do, but why do other people freak out about it? Why is drug abuse a problem?

Regardless of how you feel about drug abuse, most people have a problem with it because it destroys lives. It rips families apart. And turns addicts into bad people.

Not to mention it can kill a person. It can ruin your teeth, or kill your liver. It will make you steal from people because it can be expensive. It makes people lie, and hide from their family. Drug addiction is bad for everyone not just the person addicted

Hello - there are several reasons for drug abuse being a problem. The main problem is that drug use and alcohol abuse can result in addiction/alcoholism. When a person has an addiction it is because his or her brain changed structurally due to the drug use. When the brain rewires itself and the structure changes, a person is not able to stop drug or alcohol use.
