THIS OR THAT (The choices you make) part 1


Some days ago I was at a stall buying groceries when a teenage boy came in to purchase sweets, he smelt of cigarettes and I couldn't help but stop him to enquire if he was a consumer. Unfortunately he was.

What makes people choose to do things that is detrimental to them?
Why will you choose to consume something that damages your health?

You can either be healthy or unhealthy, and to a great extent the side you fall under depends on you. It's either this or that.

Substance abuse or drug abuse is not a new term. It has become so common that it is almost seen as normal.
When there is an excessive or harmful use of drugs, both legal and illegal, that can lead to physical and psychological dependence, it is referred to as substance abuse.

Some of the commonly abused substances include alcohol, opioids, stimulants, sedatives, marijuana, and nicotine.

Just so you know
substance abuse can have a range of negative effects on an individual's health and well-being, including:

Physical health problems such as heart disease, liver disease, and respiratory problems.

Mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and psychosis.

Social problems such as isolation, relationship issues, and legal problems.

Economic problems such as financial difficulties and job loss.

Treatment for substance abuse may involve a combination of behavioral therapy, medication, and support from family and friends. It is important to seek help as soon as possible if you or someone you know is struggling with substance abuse.

The best treatment for substance abuse however is abstinence.
