Addiction is the susceptibility to some harmful habit, most often psychophysical drug addiction (including legal drugs, nicotine, caffeine, and alcohol). In the last few decades, since the emergence of the Internet, the possibility of Internet dependence has been mentioned. Classifications include several types of addiction, such as physiological, psychological, behavioral and consumption. All species have a similar flow, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment procedure.
Adolescence represents a period of unique vulnerability for the development of addiction. Not only are adolescents more likely to initiate and maintain the use of drugs than when they become addictive, but they also are more resistant to treatment and are more susceptible to relapse. Statisticians have shown that those who begin to consume alcohol in the younger age tend to become addicted to it later in life. About 33% of the population consumes alcohol for the first time in the age between 15 and 17, while 18% are exposed before this age. As for the abuse of alcohol or addiction, the representation is high among those who first consumed alcohol before they were 12 years old, and then declined afterward. For example, 16% of alcoholics started consuming before the age of twelve, while only 9% consumed alcohol for the first time between the ages of 15 and 17. This percentage is even lower, 2.6%, for those who started using after his 21st year.
For this type of addiction, the same symptoms are typically characterized by chemical dependencies (loss of control, growth in tolerance, education of mental needs, nervousness and obsessive need for gambling in the event of gambling breaks, personality change, loss of work, family, the trust of neighbors, financial collapse ).
Alcohol dependency is a delicate topic. Alcoholism is widespread primarily because alcohol is easily accessible and why not drink a glass of beer on a hot day or a glass of wine in the evening with friends? The problem is that some people bring pleasant moments to some people and some years of tears and scandals. “If you cannot drink, do not drink,” says folk wisdom. When should we then imagine and stop?
This is the earliest and most important feature of addiction. Most people are indifferent to alcohol. For example. If he was invited to a wedding or glory, a man drank 2-3 glasses, drank a little, cheered himself, switched to juice or soda water, and calmly, on his feet, he went on his business. According to a different scenario, the situation is developing in people who are prone to alcohol. He drank, liked it, he drank more, and more and more, he was, in the end, the next day and bad, and he was ashamed.
Most often, narcotics try for the first time in the period of puberty. Curiosity, the desire to feel to adults, to distinguish between comrades … These are the most common motives for trying out available drugs. It is interesting that usually kids from families where they talked openly about the danger of narcotics, decided to try some drugs. The teenager sees no danger in marijuana or tablets, even in heroin, because his buddies take it, and that is unlawfully giving all the note of excitement and personal courage. No one thinks about the consequences. The very idea of becoming a drug addict can cause a sweet smile.
