why should i know the consequences of using drugs of any kind
Drug abuse the use of any substance strictly to alter the mood, without that substance being prescribed by a doctor. Drug abusers use the drugs to relieve anxiety - whether they call it "relieving pain," "relaxing," "taking a trip," or "feeling good." People who are happy with themselves and satisfied with their lives do not become drug abusers. If you drink alcohol because you like the taste of a drink once in a while, you are not abusing alcohol - if you drink because you want to change your mood, you are abusing it. Drug use becomes drug addiction when the user continues to use the substance even though they know it is harming them.
It is not a completely simple answer. Drug abuse effects the chemical balances in the body. When we do drugs, the drug takes the place of a signal naturally created by the body. Our bodies produce the chemical dopamine naturally at a pretty small level. When we us drugs, the DRUG tells the body to pump up dopamine production. This is the "feel good" or "reward" chemical in the brain. So when "use" turns into "abuse" the body completely IGNORES the natural signals for production of dopamine and many other chemicals. Motivation is connected to dopamine, as the body rewards you getting off you butt and doing something with pride in a job well done. That "job well done" chemical reward is not being produced without drugs. AND the amount of the reward naturally is much SMALLER than the drug induced reward. Therefore your body CAN NOT "reward" motivation. Withdraw from drugs is the period while your body "RESETS" it's systems to start making the chemicals according to it's own signals. As mentioned, many more chemicals than dopamine are taken over by different drugs. Opiates retards the bodys ability to produce melatonin and induce sleep. This is why when there is no opiates, you cant sleep. You have to wait until the body starts making the proper levels of melatonin and serotonin on its own. This withdraw period is the body and brain producing the wrong levels, if any at all, of the chemicals that keep us human.
To teach kids drug awareness, eventually peer pressure, good habits, and gang awareness.
That's a good question. A large part of our behavior is learned, however we share many of the same instincts. For example, when you receive a full score on an exam, most of us would jump up and cheer. In this situation, the instinct is to be filled with happiness, while we often learn more physical movements from watching media. On another subject, drug abuse and domestic violence is all learned from the parents. Children with a violent parent will most likely follow the same path. Likewise, a child with an alcoholic parent will most likely be an alcoholic himself.
Is that a rhetorical question?
I hope that's a rhetorical question. If not, the answer is NO.
A rhetorical question
Side note; a rhetorical question is not a retort, though some people use it as such, it is rhetorical as in rhetoric which is sort of a teaching that you follow to the letter with out any thought what so ever kind of like some religions or even those without religion. That said a rhetorical question is more of an idiomatic question (idiom) because it is so often said. example 'what is truth' 'what is normal' 'which came first the chicken or the egg'. There are no good rhetorical questions, they all suck just as bad as the idioms they have become.
The National Council on Alcoholism is a non-profit organization that can give you objective information about drug abuse programs available in your area.
"Abuse" means you're over the line by definition. Drugs by themselves are used medically and recreationally (mainly Caffeine, Nicotine, Alcohol), and you can abuse them too. Good answer, if you are at drug abuse, you are pass the safe level. One last thing, there is no safe level for drug abuse, don't kid yourself!
There really is no good reason for anyone to smoke, chew, or sniff tobacco; it is a harmful drug. Therefore, any use of tobacco is a form of drug abuse.
The primary thing is to be a good role model.
One sentence but it is also good to have a rhetorical question.
The pleasurable feeling from eating a good meal.
How about..."Just say No!" Crack is WhackIf you do drug shots, then you do mug shots."C'mon, just do it !"
