People sometimes will ask you why at an early age, a teenager will use drugs and drink alcohol. Have you ever asked yourself? You can ask google anyway, and it will give so many reasons why not only adults but counts of teenagers are affected now by drugs.
Family. Sometimes, it all boils down to one good reason. Foundation in the family. Some teenagers who are taking drugs are influenced by their own family. It is heart-breaking to hear but yes, you hear news about a mother and a father both high in drugs who are killed in a car accident with their very own child sitting in the back seat. But sometimes, no matter how good a parent you are, we cannot avoid other people who are with our child every single day. A parent cannot just observe and look after their children in school or anywhere they go so we can know what they are doing. Influence of the parents plays a huge role in nurturing their children.
Community. They call it “peer pressure.” It can be the circle of friends where they belong to or the place where they live in or work in. Sometimes, no matter how good the foundation in a family is, one cannot avoid the call of a friend. To be called “in” a teenager will most likely follow whatever the group is doing. The community also affects a teenager’s responses to his environment. As one grows older, he/she spends more of his/her time in the community. This stage is very vital to a parent. This is where they have to be more patient and understanding to their children because this is the stage wherein their children will do the decision making most of the time.
Curiosity. Be it with the family or the community, the curiosity of a teenager is the root cause of a teenager being addicted to drugs or alcohols. One may have an idea about it, its cause and effect, their parents will be against of them taking it, or their friends may get mad if they won’t do it with them. There are so many things a teenager may think about or may be curious about. Their desire of trying new things, the if’s, how to’s and the why not questions may come in. They just simply want to explore the world. There are times in which teens just get bored and they will start to be curious about a certain thing and try it the first time. And this first time will be followed by another try until they get used to it and have difficulties of avoiding it.
No matter what reasons teens have to lean on drugs or alcohols, we, the majority of the people who doesn’t take the risk of being addicted to it must understand and influence especially the teenagers to live a better life. A life away from this evil that will take their lives in one way or another. There’s no other way but to give them something or someone to lean on and forget about the evil they can find in drugs and alcohol.
