    There are to many reasons for people to get addicted to drugs. Here are some of the most frequent:
    1. They see it done in the home from parents or older bro/sis
    2. The have a ligitamite medical condition and them get so used to the high from the pain pills that they crave it.
    3. Some drugs are made to make the body want more. Heroin is one of the most addictive drungs. The drugs make you feel bad when you start to ‘come down’ so you want to feel good again, so you take more
    4. Abuse in the home. People that are abused look to drugs and alcohol as a way to forget the problems at home

  • chazimperator says:

    prod in 1987 obviously antiquates this info; hope to find more timely material tht coherently & appropriately? addrs the current “paradigms.” Special emphasis on multiple viable, compassionate treatments. Too much mass culture/media exposure to such potentially destructive treatments like “interventions,” which have become the focus of self-serving “reality TV.” If people are going to to be helped, these ignorant media trends need countermeasures- wide nat’l dialog & cutting edge science

    I found the CURE for addiction and I have proof for this? claim. Click on my name and witness Powerful Stories of Freedom. I? personally know and have witnessed over 100? addicts who have found True and Lasting FREEDOM after being enslaved by their? addictions for so long. I have been through many programs for my addiction, but have never found so? much Hope, Joy, Peace, and Love than I have in the program I am in now. And the people I know who have given their stories are experiencing the same!

    The fact that you speak from 20 years of experience only means you can say why you think you use/used drugs, that? doesn’t mean you can speak for me and every other person on the planet.

  • turboeddy says:

    i speak from 20 years of experiance? my friend .

  • DarthMink says:

    I’m sure people use drugs for different reasons but I know a lot of people do them just because they like to get high. You can’t just generalize a single reason why every drug user in the entire world does what they do but I think the majority of people who do drugs do so basically because either they like the? way they feel when they’re high, or because they liked the way drugs made them feel at one time but now only continue to use because they’re addicted.

    people do drugs to hide behind the things they dont want face in life .drugs are a armour to hide behind a? defence mechanism

    What kind of religious organization kills pets?

    Former CoS agent Steve Fishman confirms that CoS attorney Ken Moxon ordered OSA agents Lenny Leibowitz and Clarice Guidice to drown a dog. Through a coordinated effort, Lenny and Clarice managed to? arrive at Judge Ronald Swearinger’s (Scientology vs Wollersheim) house. Lenny threw the Collie “Duke” into the pool and “sat on the dog” until the dog drowned.

    Just one of many examples of Scientology killings pets to intimidate.
