How Drugs Affect Us

ARE YOU FEELING DOWN

Drugs And Problems

The more he uses drugs and alcohol, the guiltier he will feel, and the more depressed he will become. He will sacrifice his personal integrity, his relationships with friends and family, his job, his savings, and anything else he may have in an attempt to get more drugs. The drugs are now the most important things in his life. His relationships and job performance will go drastically downhill.

How Drugs Affect Behavior

The addict will now attempt to withhold the fact of his drug use from friends and family members. He will begin to suffer the effects of his own dishonesty and guilt. He may become withdrawn and difficult to reason with. He may behave strangely.

Drugs And Personality Change

There is such a thing as a “drug personality.” It is artificial and is created by drugs. Drugs can change the attitude of a person from his original personality to one secretly harboring hostilities and hatreds he does not permit to show on the surface.

This establishes a link between drugs and increasing difficulties with crime, production and the modern breakdown of social and industrial culture.

The drug personality includes such characteristics as:

Mood swings
Unreliable. Unable to finish projects.
Unexpressed resentment and secret hatreds.
Dishonesty. Lies to family, friends, employers.
Withdraws from those who love him. Isolates self.
May appear chronically depressed.
May begin stealing from family and friends.
