Drugs, Cigarettes, and Alcohol Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION

Drugs, Cigarettes and Alcohol have become some of the biggest items of international trade. Drug trade has grown from a small cottage 20 years ago, but which at present, is one of the largest smuggling items of the world. There are more than 8 million drug addicts in the world in which South Asia has vast number of drug addicts and drug
suppliers. All South Asian countries have strict rules and
regulations for stopping drug traffickers, but they often escape the punishment by bribing the officers. Poverty also tempts farmers into drug production.

Another neglected problem in South Asia is cigarrete smoking. Nepal also has a vast number of cigarrete smokers. The children who are regularly exposed to smoking are prone to respiratory illnesses and cancer. Some students also have a bad circle of friends who attract them to smoke. Some students even learn by seeing it in movies. They think themselves smart by smoking. Similarly another problem in Nepal is alcohol. Some people are attracted by the advertisement given on television and on the radio. In our country, it is seen that often thedrunker beats his wife and quarrels with his children. Drinking alcohol and driving have also taken human lives. Our country is buying
a lot of alcohol from foreign countries which actually should be used in the welfare of the country.

Drugs, Cigarrettes and Alcohol are very harmful for our body
because it causes Aids and Cancer and liver and heart problems. It should be controlled by banning advertisements on the media and writing articles on the demerits of drugs so that people will be aware of increasing cigarrete and alcohol taxes,etc. Awareness should be included in course books so that children can learn about drugs, alcohol and cigarretes.

Thank you,

really sad

I feel your sadness
Joanna Frizzell | Feb 1st, 2002
A person once told me "People use drugs because they're effective", this person was an alcoholic and cocaine addict. And you never would have guessed that this person was also a brilliant lawyer and debater, and I do mean brilliant (absolutely genius). People would not use drugs if there was no satifaction or validation of something. Drug use is part of man's escapism tendency. I think stress and not knowing how to deal properly with our frustrations and negative energy is the main cause of general drug use throughout the world. There are more complex feelings confusion, denial, and a real distaste for the world, that lead to very abusive drug use. I think that as a communities we need to encourage positive practices and solutions for expressing and changing negatives into positives. I would really like to elaborate but I do not have the time so I will leave you with some final thoughts. I believe that for us to begin to change a world problem, or a bad world people habit we need to go to the root of the problem. Drug use is a means of release and temporary satisfaction from that release, it is a release of pent up feelings. And these pent up feelings express themselves through the drug use. So the solution and idea that should be built off of is positive constructive use of these pent up energies, give them an alternate mode of expression. And that could involve support of artistic means of expression, but anything that involves creativity and expressing these feeling through creation, not destruction.



Probably...

I agree with Delila! The use of drugs is a way to "escape" from this reality... But why use something bad, to escape from another thing that can be... BAD! Yes, reality can sometimes be bad. Depends on the experiencies each one lives. People need to me aware that escaping is not an option, but to confront the reality is probably the only solution... Worked for me ! :) It can probably work for most people! (No i

I can't believe so many people smoke even when they know that it's really unhealthy.

Cameroon like all other African countries and other countries in the developing world, faces a lot of problem concerning youths health. This is mostly common among sexually active youths. The careless and poor nature of their life, do not permit them to be aware of certain dangers that may attend them. African youths as a whole do face this problem of having low knowledge on sexual education. They know more while in the field, which actually becomes very dangerous to them and the society in which they live. Sexually Transmitted Diseases are very common within youths. This is due to their active sexual life style which is mostly never protected. Taking into consideration the various STD’s that does exist, many of them are curable. STD’s that does exist, many of them can be cured. YES!! It’s true, many STD’s can be cured. But what about AIDS?? Many people who have an STD, don’t know it. They may look very healthy, but they still could have an STD. Some people won’t tell you even if they know they have it. “Looks can be deceiving”. Among all STD’s there is one that can not be cured, and this is AIDS. AIDS is a pandemic as it is a disease which is spreading rapidly through a large number of people across the continents. AIDS which is caused by the Human Immune Deficiency Virus(HIV), is a disorder which damages the human body’s immune system. Results show that, world wide, nearly 1 adult in every 100, between the ages of 15 to 50 is infected with HIV and in 1998, at least 33million people had HIV and another 14million people had died as a result of HIV/AIDS HIV/AIDS is especially wide spread in the developing world. In some Sub-Saharan countries, AIDS has more than doubled the death rate. In Namibia, AIDS already become the single greatest cause of death. As a result of AIDS, life expectancy also is falling substantially in Botswana, Ethiopia, Malawi, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Kwalock Blaise

people take drugs for different reasons, just like people watch t.v. for different reasons. please don't stereotype drug users. i agree that *hu*man kind (note of sexist language in before post) is addicted to poison and money. i'd like to add that what we consider as "bad for consumption" is largely dictated by who is in power. why is marijuana deemed illegal in many countries all over the world when alcohol and ciggarettes are legal? more deaths are caused by cars every year compared to narcotic drug overdoses. drugs do complicate problems at times but most drug users (i include caffien, ciggarettes, alcohol, anti-depressants and others in this catagory) would tell you that they don't think their use is a problem. personally i don't drink and i smoke occasionally. i have used drugs on and off in my life and i don't feel like drug use is a problem for me. on the other hand i have alcoholism in my family and i have had bad experiences with legal drugs (anti-depressants, caffien, birth controll). i think it is important to stay conscious of your body so that you can be aware of how drugs effect you. i don't think drug use is a problem unless it get's in the way of living. if your relationships, job, and school are suffering then you know you have a problem. until then let's all get high... whether it's on life, or whatever drug makes you happy and enriches your life. if you want to learn more about drugs i suggest you check out the toronto raver info project. we're a harmreduction project that's been around for almost ten years now. we were the first project of our kind in north america and there have been dancesafe chapters sprouting across the continent ever since! www.torontoraverinfoproject.ca
