In the movie Blades Of Glory, the character Chazz Michael Michaels, played by actor Will Ferrel, was a self-confessed sex addict. For those who do not believe in the possibility of people being addicted to sex, Will Ferrel’s character would surely be just fictional. However, one episode of The Tyra Banks Show also discussed sexual addiction and even had guests who openly admitted to being sex-addicts. What was more surprising is the fact that one of their guests is only 14 years old and she confessed to being a sex addict since she was 12.
Some different types of Addictions are:Caffeine addiction, nicotine addiction, drug addiction, Alcohol addictions, and gambling addictions.
One’s possessions can start going missing as the addict needs to “feed” his habit and this takes money. You have to pay to continue with your drug addiction. Many addicts turn to stealing or selling their bodies. These are the potential long-term effects of being an addict.
If they are still at school, their grades start to plummet and this opens the door to the school system enforcing further addictive drugs on them. The problem just worsens. If they’re working, their lessened responsibility makes them a liability in the work place and they very often lose their jobs.These are the social consequences but what of the consequences for the family? Many families are under economic or work pressures. To have the increased concern for a loved one who is addicted can just be the last straw that breaks the camel’s back.
What of the health consequences for a loved one who is addicted to cocaine? Cocaine addiction can lead to serious health problems. Basically, drugs are poisons. The amount that is taken determines the effect. A small amount acts as a stimulant, a greater amount as a sedative and a larger amount acts as a poison and can kill one.That’s the physical health consequences, but what about the mental consequences? Cocaine addiction can make one start to act crazy. It starts in a very mild way with increasingly more irritability, inability to do normal routine day-to-day activities that were not a problem before, to paranoia and even psychoses.
The dangers inherent in cocaine addiction are therefore not just a loved one’s physical health but his mental health too and, often overlooked, the possibility of being caught in a crime in order to be able to feed the habit and the possibility of failing at school and/or losing a job. It affects every part of an addict’s life – personal, family and social.This makes it even more important to get the cocaine addiction resolved. In most cases, people become addicted to an inability to deal with some or other situation in their life. No-one but the addict knows exactly what this situation is or was that lead to their cocaine addiction. It might have been to fit in with his peers; it might have been a problem at school or with a family member. There is any number of factors that could have lead to the cocaine addiction and one of the most important factors in finding a cocaine addiction treatment program is to ensure that no-one makes him feel worse about it or presumes to know why he got into trouble in the first place. It is extremely harmful for someone to do this to him and will only set him back more.
