Reflection 2 : Addiction
Last Monday, I had the chance to attend a talk on addiction, and more precisely, on drug consumption within high school students in Meknes. Dr Khalid Mouna, the holder of the talk is a native of the city of Meknes and his early experiences led him to do research on drug and try to understand why people, at some points of their lives, decide to do drugs.
As he says it himself, Dr. Khalid Mouna, during his years in high school and university, was surrounded by friends who used to smoke hash. When seeing how drugs have negatively affected the lives of his friends, he, then, wanted to explore this subject

An article published both in the Sunday Times and the Wall Street Journal in May of 2006 entitled, “Don’t blame me, I’m just the junkie”, written by Theodore Dalrymple, purposes that criminality is more likely to cause heroin addiction than heroin addiction is to cause criminality.
The author of this article, in my opinion, clearly has an unrealistic view of addiction and has obviously never experienced withdrawal. Mr. Dalrymple begins this article in a disturbing tone when he states that most addicts in prison say “I would give up the heroin if only I got the help”. He goes on to interpret this statement to mean that the addict is of course implying that there is a technical means by

Addiction is one of the things that undermines traditional values. It puts the person’s health at risk and alters his behaviour dramatically. One of the most underestimated addiction in today’s society is online gaming. Online gaming addiction is the excessive use of computer and video games that interferes with so called normal life (Chan, 2006). Although taking risks and experimenting with a variety of activities is considered normal, those who are at high risk of being dependent of this addiction are more prone to engage in sensation-seeking behaviours (Mehroof and Griffiths, 2010). The transtheoretical model of behaviour change outlines the person’s precontemplation and contemplation

Addiction is a bad habit which leads to considerable negative side effects that are social, psychological and physical nature which causes the user to be dependent on the drugs rather than depending on themselves and their mental faculties. It involves the users having cravings and compulsive behaviours which indicates that they do not just want or need the commodity but crave it and the deprivation of this commodity causes a significant amount of withdrawal symptoms which affects the user physically, psychologically and socially.

Drug Addiction and Recovery
Professor Paul Neuhausen
Many people do not understand why or how other people become so consumed in drug addiction. Often drug addicts are mistaken as weak individuals with no will power and assume they can stop using drugs at any time. In reality, drug addiction is a complex disease and being able to quit drugs takes more than good intentions and strong will. Drugs change the brain in ways that foster compulsive drug abuse, so quitting is very difficult even for those who say they are ready to quit. Through scientific advances we know more about how drugs work in the brain and we

That may lead to some people asking, “What are the side effects or negatives of substance abuse?”
Some of these may include physical health issues such as addiction, dependency, withdrawal symptoms, memory loss and the list goes on. Some social issues may occur as well, such as your damaged relationships with friends and loved ones. Grades might begin to decline and behaviors around your peers may change. If an addiction were to happen, then finances may be in jeopardy. Funds saved for a priority may be used to supply or feed the need for these substances. These are just a few of the many consequences of substance use and abuse. Which may make some people wonder, “Do the pros really outweigh the cons?”

Drugs and alcohol can cause short and long term damage to the human body. People that abuse drugs and alcohol may not be aware of the damage they are doing to their bodies.

These psychological effects can and may be permanent depending on the drug used and prolonged use of drugs and alcohol. Here we will concentrate on alcohol, amphetamines, and ecstasy. These vary in type of drug, addiction potential, and damage they can cause to the body and mind.

But a second explanation seems more plausible -- that people working full-time jobs in real-world settings are almost certainly going to be under greater stress and experience more negative outcomes than those who work in the relatively safe confines of an in-agency sheltered workshop.

financial relief from his gambling debt, even though Norman knows very well that Paul would never accept such an easy solution. The Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS) has guidelines on what to avoid doing for a loved one with gambling issues, one of them stating, “bail out the gambler” (Problem Gambling & the Family). Yet Norman is too concerned to abide by that first precaution. Paul comes home late to fish, and Norman still takes him along without any complaints. Norman follows one of DMHAS’s “don’ts,” which is “[excluding] the gambler from family life and activities.” Perhaps Norman simply does not want to let his brother’s problems hinder their plans, but
