    Why do people take destructive drugs?

    Why do people take drugs like cocaine,heroin,meth,bath salts,alcohol,.... that are known to make harm in the body and they do not help us grow,in other words we don't get anything from them the only thing we get is that our body gets hurt or damaged.

    Re : Why do people take destructive drugs?

    Because even if the product hurts you and makes you feel bad, you like it and cant imagine your life without it.
    Because even if it makes you feel pain, it's a pain you got used to, and which makes you forget your problems.
    Because you feel guilty and hate yourself and somehow want to punish yourself.
    Because you try it 'cause you're just curious and without noticing you get addicted to it.

    There are many reasons why people use this kind of chems, and maybe one per user

    Even though these drugs are destructive in the middle term, one may learn something from them, as from any experience.

    but you get addicted to those substances and you can't live your life without them this doesn't bring you any experiences at all.l think that destructive drugs were made for partying nothing else they just pump massive doses of dopamine in your brain that is all you don't get any useful visuals or knowledge from the universe,they are just to have an good time if you can call that an good time at all.

    You can learn things about yourself with addictive drugs like meth or heroin

    For instance why do you take this kind of drugs and why you got addicted to it.

    Re: Why do people take destructive drugs?

    There are many reasons why people take destructive drugs or why people have unhealthy and self destructive behavior. People may have psychological problems. People try to self medicate. Some people just want to get fucked up.
    Some people are misinformed or maybe just stupid.

    Why do people eat junk food and get fat and unhealthy? Why do people drink those unhealthy energy drinks? Why do some people give that shit food to there children?
    One aspect of it is that people focus on the short term and don,t think about the long term. a live fast die young mentality.


    For me personally i do not take destructive drugs.

    I don't really know why people are using these kinds of drugs, all they do is ruin your life. If you become addicted to it, there is no coming back. getting hooked into it is a waste of money and a waste of your life.

    Hi,
    Psychedelics can be as destructive as other drugs. Maybe you didn't read the topic about a psychonaut who was in mourning for his friend who went crazy. Or this psychonaut who could not bear with the society anymore since his ayahuasca trip. Please don't say "destructive drugs" for the physically addictive ones only.

    I agree totally.
    With my own friends most experiences with psychedelic substances so far were very positive. However I heard stories from other people which were not very possible at all. For example a near murder, and a near suicide, to name a few. (And obviously, these might just as well have been truelly lethal)
    It's also very possible to enhance mental problems or get a spiritual crisis.

    I actually almost had a spiritual crisis once, becoming so detached from reality that I couldn't tell what was up or down, left or right. It didn't even matter either, as I didn't care for everyday life anymore. Careless about everything and everyone, just being at unease at the chaos that was inside me.

    To say psychedelics are entirely harmless is naive, and they should be treated with proper respect, also considering it's simply not for everyone.

    Re: Why do people take destructive drugs?

    The point is not that one drugs or another is destructive. It is the behavior of people that is destructive.
    You don,t need drugs to be destructive or to destroy yourself. If you are suffering from anorexia for example.
    However a lot of people do use drugs to destroy them selfs.
    When it comes to addiction, it does not need to be drugs. You can get addiction to a lot of stuff.

    Like anorexia addiction also is a disease. People have this destructive behavior because of this disease. The question is not why do people have destructive behavior. More important is how do we cure the disease of addiction.

    I don't think destructive drugs should be consumed. These are for pleasure not for violence.

    You can learn from them, as it sorta teaches a lesson. (Drugs teaching lessons? Cows fly.)

    But destructive drugs for pleasure? That seems kinda weird.

    Re: Why do people take destructive drugs?

    Many people who seek escapism through destructive chemicals like cocaine, ecstasy etc can often find themselves being guided away from the substance. by the substance. a perception change manifested by the substance. The ability to observe & understand.

    I experimented blindly like most. But If I knew what i know now I would have stuck with cannabis "the gateway drug"..

    Cannabis led me away from all man made chemicals, drugs & pharmaceuticals towards an organic, healthy lifestyle void of plastics, preservatives, unnatural products, synthetic materials etc. Cannabis has been nothing but beneficial to my life.

    The so called gateway drug led me in the opposite direction from drugs.

    Thank you cannabis, now its our turn to help you.

    We use destructive drugs (or behaviors) because we want to destroy demons inside us. Or at least make them shut up for a while.

    ... And why do people taking "enlightenment" drugs talk about "open-minded spirits" but think they know better than everyone else, especially other drug users, what's good or bad for them ... ?

    Often its to cope with horrific pasts, or a mistake that is still haunting them. Read Crowley and then say hard drugs can't be creative.

    Re: Why do people take destructive drugs?

    In my opinion, people usually indulge in taking destructive drugs as their scape goat to their problems and depressions. I think, the best way to stay away from those kind of drugs is to keep oneself busy with other important activities that would benefit a person.

    Re: Why do people take destructive drugs?

    Can't cocaine/heroine/crack/etc users have as valuable reasons to take these drug than your own to take psychedelics ?
    They are not necessarly freaks or sick, some of them just enjoy the effect, the pleasure without getting hooked (like probably some psychedelics users enjoy the effect without never understading the deepness of the stuff...).
    Drug consumptiom et addiction problems are way more complexe than childhood issues and "scape goat their problems" explanations, wich short-ways to explain what we don't understand or approve
    But, I can't only agree with the fact that these drugs are way more dangerous...

    Re: Why do people take destructive drugs?

    I think because many people live in cramped apartments and because of over population there is no space to just run by the river or chill peacefully in the sun without some morons making a bunch of noises to get attention. So people do drugs to make their little spaces seem like bigger places and escape into an imaginary creative world.

    Hi, this is a very interesting topic. In my own view, people do take destructive drugs because they have the difficulties to accept reality especially if they do have problems or simply they are not even aware of the bad effects of these drugs. I think, people like them needs constant communication and advice.

    Because some drugs are just bad for you (health)
    We know sigarets kills. We know what alcohol does to the body. There is science behind it.

    I think it is really a matter of personality. Some people are more likely to be addicted to alcohol or stimulant ( you can read a little from each people you met) while the other will prefer psychedelics. I've noticed those behaviour through my close friends, who all have different "addiction" that i think are pretty much linked to their personality.

    But for sure, drugs are a way to escape reality / discover other kind of reality.

    Re: Why do people take destructive drugs?

    Just to back up my comment last time. People use drugs for different purposes, it varies from person to person. They are some of those who use drugs for just pleasure, and most of users are taking drugs because they want to run from their problems. They think drugs is a solution, but they don't know the consequence of drug use is always worse than their problems. Some take drugs just to fit in, this is common from youth nowadays. Just to be belong to their peer group, kids are forcing themselves to take these drugs and in the run, they become attached to it, involving in an urge of continuing using it. I suddenly remember the blog I read a while ago, a discussion whether marijuana is addictive or not. Mind you that there are people think marijuana is a destructive drug and there are people too who think it's a medicine. But the only question is, if marijuana is addictive. For me, it's totally addictive. There is no reason why the internet has some vast-full amount of information about recovery from it such as this one Addiction Rehab Center Spokane WA, Which we're I got those information I used to comment in that blog. In fact, three out of ten marijuana user have a chance to become dependent on it. It is the commonly used drug among the youth. At least for my own point of view. Either way, people use drugs for many reasons, just like what I said before, but commonly, people use drugs because of the over confident feeling that they are having under the influence of it.

    Re: Why do people take destructive drugs?

    Because even if it is destructive, It can be a pleasurable and/or like anything can be psychologically addictive. Having a healthy life isn't the only way of living. In fact after some long reflexion, I have concluded that death isn't something bad and is part of life. Death is for me more exciting than scary, and I mean it. What is there awaiting to us after our death. Maybe nothing, maybe another life, the possibilities are infinite. ( Don't worry i'm not going to commit suicide, I'm willing to fully enjoy my life while I still can ). Death is unavoidable and we all can die anytime, and what is 10 years in opposite of an exciting life ? I do not take most of destructive drugs and if I do, i'll be sure to know what I am cosuming to know if it is worth it. But this is why I understand people who do it. It is a choice of lifestyle and is respectable as any other choice.

    People needs to understands that there is 2 different types of addictions that are very distincts. The physical one that is linked to the product ( Weed for example isn't physically addictive ) and makes you need it because your body needs it. Psychological addiction works in fact really differently and can be linked to anything. It isn't due to the product the user consum but due to how the human brain works. In facts most physicological addiction are caused by a lack of social link of any sort ( it can differ between people ), the product or the hobby for example, will then be taken as a substitute to the social link that is missing. Humans need social links. Sorry for my bad english, but it isn't my mother tongue. For further explanation of what I explained, I propose to read " Chasing the scream " from Johann Hari or at least this article that sums up this books subect and discoveries with examples and sources such like scientific experiments and data from all around the world : The Likely Cause of Addiction Has Been Discovered, and It Is Not What You Think*|*Johann Hari ( There is for example stunning datas from Portugal where every drugs are decriminalised ).

    I havn't presented myself yet. But I promise I'll do it as soon as possible. I need to go to sleep now. I have an exam tommorow.
