Bad habits and addiction factors

Bad habits, or rather harmful, are considered to be those that interfere or do not allow a person to successfully realize himself as a person during his life.

The formation of these habits is based on a passive role, primarily of parents, of the older generation - in the person of relatives and friends, educators, teachers, friends and the “everyday” environment of the teenager.

As a rule, bad habits are divided into three categories - depending on what they are aimed at:

1) on oneself;

2) to other people;

3) objects surrounding a person.

In the life of any of us, habits play an important role, fully justifying their name: useful - beneficial, harmful - unfavorable.

But what about the habits associated with the use of pharmacological drugs?

The use of psychotropic drugs for entertainment, for medical and other purposes was known in ancient times.

Currently, there is general concern about the “habit” of using narcotic substances, which adversely affects an unfavorable physical outcome, causing social and economic consequences not only of the individual, but of the family as a whole.

Frequent use of pharmacological drugs causes drug dependence. And if you take into account the age of a young boy or girl - it’s a disaster! The trouble of the individual family!

The following factors play an important role in the development of a drug addiction in a young person: individual characteristics and perception of sensations from the drugs used; the nature of the socio-cultural environment and the mechanism of action of narcotic drugs (quantity, frequency and route of administration through the respiratory tract, subcutaneously or intravenously).

WHO experts have defined the terminology of addictive substances.
I think you will be interested to get acquainted with it:

1) substances of alcohol-barbiturate type (ethanol, barbiturates, sedatives - meprobromate, chloral hydrate, etc.);

2) substances such as amphetamine (amphetamine, phenmetrazine);

3) substances like cannabis (marijuana, hash);

4) substances like cocaine (cocaine and coca leaves);

5) hallucinogenic type (lysergide - LSD, mescaline);

6) kata type substances - Catha ectulis Forsk;

7) substances like opiate (opiates - morphine, heroin, codeine, methadone);

8) substances such as ether solvents (toluene, acetone and carbon tetrachloride).

The listed drugs are used as therapeutic targets, excluding ether solvents, and cause addiction - addiction to the human body.

But there is another type of non-medical drug, which is also a drug. I am talking about tobacco, and I want to draw your attention to this information.

Tobacco is an addictive substance and can cause physical damage to health. This is a serious problem that worries not only doctors, but also educators.

Tobacco, as a stimulant or depressant, has a relatively small effect on the central nervous system, causing minor disturbances in perception, mood, motor functions and behavior. Under the influence of tobacco, even in large quantities (2-3 packs per day), the psychotoxic effect is incomparable with pharmaceuticals, but the “stupefying effect” is observed, especially in young and young children.
