Drug Addiction

Taking an excess of the drug for no physical disease to get rid of frustration is called drug addiction. Addiction to the drug has, nowadays, become one of the greatest problems in the world. This curse has spread in our country also. Not everyone who uses drugs becomes addicted. But it can happen to anyone and at any age. Young people who keep bad company may be addicted. There are mainly two reasons behind it. First one is young people are more curious. So whatever they see harmful or useful, they are the first to taste. Again, frustration is another cause of taking drugs. When there is no hope left for the young, they become addicted to drugs. Unemployment, political anarchy, lack of family ties, lack of love and affection, etc. give rise to frustration. The after effects of drug addiction are terrible. It gives rise to various social problems. Drugs are very expensive. When the drug addicts are unable to afford to buy drugs, they commit social crimes like hijacking, stealing, robbery, etc. Drugs tell upon the human body terribly. They kill slowly but surely. Drug addicts feel drowsy, lose their appetite and remain in sleep. Their brains are damaged to meet death. There’s no cure, but treatment can help them stop using drugs and stay drug-free. To save our young generation from the claw of drug addiction, production and trafficking of drugs should be controlled. Social awareness should be raised regarding the adverse effects of drug addiction.
