Learning Together

I have been studing on the subject of SUBSTANCE ABUSE. I am learing some very interesting information that I would like to share with my readers.

There are a lot of reasons why people use drugs. Whether they are licit or illicit (legal or illegal) misusing drugs of any kind can lead to addiction or even death. I would like to share just a few points about substance abuse:

Let's first give the definition of WHAT IS A DRUG: A CHEMICAL SUBSTANCE THAT, WHEN TAKEN INTO THE BODY, ALTERS THE STRUCTURE OR FUNCTIONING OF THE BODY IN THE SAME WAY.

Let's remember that CAFFEINE & NICOTINE (stimulants), ALCOHOL & INHALED SOLVENTS (depressants) and a number of PRESCRIPTION or OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATION are all LEGAL DRUGS. We know that there are also a number of ILLEGAL DRUGS: MARIJUANA, HEROIN, COCAINE, METH, ECSTASY, GHB, ROHYPNOL and LSD just to name a few.

JUST A FEW FACTS:

- Regular consumption of Alcohol begin in junior high school.

- 1 in 10 children and teens live with at least one parent with an Alcohol problem.

- 1 in 11 high school seniors report smoking cigarettes.

- In 2008 unintentional drug poisoning from Prescription meds had become the leading cause of injury death among people 25 to 64 years old.

In the upcoming months, I will be sharing more information on the subject of Substance Abuse. My goal is to share as much information as I can in hopes that it will help someone come out of the darkness of addiction and into the light of LIVING.

GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU
