What the commander needs to know about drugs

Currently, there are 5 main groups of narcotic substances, these are:

1. Opiates - drugs derived from opium poppy or its synthetic substitutes. Cause a state of euphoria and are characterized by a very high degree of formation of physical and mental dependence. These include: opium, morphine, heroin, codeine, etc.

2. Depressants - substances that soothe or depress the activity of the central nervous system. There are in the form of sedatives, hypnotic drugs and tranquilizers. They are used to treat insomnia, soothe “shattered” nerves and relieve anxiety. Alcohol belongs to this group of drugs.

3. Psychostimulants - substances used to increase activity, relieve fatigue and reduce appetite (weight control). These include: caffeine, nicotine, cocaine and crackers, amphetamines, etc.

4. Hallucinogens - natural or synthetic substances that change the sensations, thinking and emotions. These include: LSD, Ecstasy, mescaline, certain types of mushrooms, etc.

5. Marijuana is the most commonly used drug derived from Indian cannabis (it can also be produced from wild Russia in central Russia). Other forms are hashish and hash oil. It is worth adding that marijuana used to be considered harmless. However, as is now known, it is very dangerous. Often, starting with marijuana, they later move on to stronger drugs.

The development of drug addiction is divided into three stages:

1. Irregular use, experimentation.

A soldier may try drugs (alcohol in particular) out of curiosity, or from a desire to become “his own” (most characteristic of people with low neuropsychological stability, imitating, influential) in the company, or to experience new sensations, to find himself , feel their independence from the circumstances and others.
Studies have shown that peer pressure is the most common reason an individual decides to try a drug.

2. Regular use.

If drug use brings pleasant sensations, then the individual may want to try them again. When drug use becomes regular, the individual may lose the ability to cope with daily problems. From this point on, drug use becomes a means of improving mood and getting rid of depression.

3. Addiction to drugs.

Soon, when not sober state becomes normal, but a state of narcotic (alcoholic) intoxication, physical and psychological dependence on the drug develops. The only thing that worries a person is the acquisition of a drug and the maintenance of such a state.

Drug use often masks passing unnoticed teenage depression. It can be caused by an unfavorable family situation, disappointment in life choices, personal problems, and the exaggerated demands of the parents (superiors). Sometimes, due to inability to cope with stress, unfavorable environment, an individual with low self-esteem can start using drugs.
