Learn Deeper About Bad Effects of Drugs


In general, narcotics or drugs mean a substance that can cause changes in feelings, visual conditions, and observations, because these substances affect the central nervous system of the user. If you are using it, you may get addicted. If it happens, you can try family intervention.

Based on the effects on the users, drugs are classified as follows:

Hallucinogens, namely the effect of drugs that can cause a person to hallucinate by seeing things that do not exist/are not real when consumed in certain doses. For example, cocaine & LSD.

Stimulants, namely the effects of drugs that can cause the work of organs such as the heart and brain to work faster than usual, result in users being more energetic and happier for a while.

Depressants, namely the effect of drugs that can suppress the central nervous system and reduce the body's functional activity, so that the user feels calm and even falls asleep and is unconscious.

If it is too long and has been dependent on drugs or you use them too much, the user will overdose and eventually lead to death.

The effect of drugs also depends on the type of drug used, how much has been consumed, for how long, the person's own health condition, and other factors. When a person abuses drugs in the long run, he will also experience dependence.

As a result, drugs can make someone become addicted. But keep in mind that, not all people who consume drugs will feel addiction as long as the dangerous addictive substances in drugs have not damaged brain cells.

Damage to brain cells is what will lead to dependence and can also cause the effects of other drugs. This condition will also make it difficult for sufferers to stop using drugs, even when they are trying hard to stop using drugs. A person who takes drugs repeatedly and for a long time will trigger changes in nerve cells in the brain, which then interfere with communication between nerve cells. In fact, in chronic conditions, after drug consumption is stopped, the effects will last for quite a long time. The impact of changes in brain nerve cells can cause memory loss or even memory loss. This is because the types of drugs gamma-hydroxybutyric acid and Rohypnol can cause sedative or drowsy effects, changes in behavior, disturbed body coordination, confusion, and weakened memory.

One of the causes of drug abuse among adolescents or the general public is encouragement or even coercion from the environment. Therefore, you can teach someone to be able to resist when there is a temptation to use drugs. If you can, try to avoid friends or a circle that is often tempting to use these drugs. Look for friends who invite you to do positive things. Sometimes, the factors that cause drug abuse can arise when a person feels insistent pressure in his life. But remember, drugs will only make problems worse in your life. Try to find more positive ways to deal with life's stresses, such as exercising, being creative with friends, or doing relaxing things like yoga.
