Drug Abuse And Its Effects On Health

Drugs are not that hard to find anymore. Whether is temptation from the entourage,
curiosity, whether they appeal because they can make you escape the reality for a certain amount of time or you like the idea of playing with fire and doing something forbidden or
dangerous, one must know that the effects of drugs vary and are unpredictable?

Often mixed with alcohol for example, they can have effects a whole lot different from the ones expected. Learning the consequences of drug abuse will make you see the risks involved, and these are high risks, and very possible leading to death.

We shouldn’t talk solely about the effects of taking drugs, but also about the physical and psychological repercussions involved with sudden abstinence.There is another fact worth knowing, that is the purity and dosage of forbidden drugs is often impossible to control, thus over dosage is a large possibility. Drugs can make you tolerant to their effects, so constant enlargements of dosage will occur, doubling the negative effects. Since drugs toy with your mind, they can make you anxiety-free. HealthCare Review tells Losing inhibition regarding just about anything will lead to violent and/or antisocial behavior, reckless behavior, indulging in unprotected sexual activity, increasing the chances to contract an unwanted pregnancy or a sexually transmitted disease. 

Here’s what taking drugs can do to your health and body functions:

Stimulants like amphetamines increase blood pressure, heart and breathing rates, magnifying physical activity and alertness. Its side-effects include symptoms like sweating, dizziness, blurred perception, insomnia, loss of appetite, anxiety, mood swings and the false feeling of power. It is highly addictive, both physical and psychological, and using large amounts of amphetamines may lead to a condition known as amphetamine psychosis which manifests of intense hallucinations, paranoia and delusions. Over dosage can lead to coma and even death.

Marijuana interferes with motrical coordination, perception of time and judgment. Can cause memory-loss for a brief amount of time, decreases sperm production and can cause miscarriages and alteration to their period cycle. 

Cocaine is a highly addictive drug, because the pleasurable effects don’t last very long and induces the desire to keep taking it.  Cocaine usage includes effects like high blood pressure, temperature, body and breathing rate. In time, the nose membrane can be severely damaged. Continuous dosage produces insomnia, anxiousness, agitation and weight loss. Overdoses might kill.

Narcotics, as in heroin, morphine, opium etc can alter the mood; they are addictive and can cause medical problems such as liver diseases, congestion of lungs, anemia, heart problems and even death.

LSD, DMT, Mescaline and other hallucinogens can cause highly intense hallucinations and leads to an uncontrolled behavior, with panic and paranoia as side effects. Insomnia, sweating, loss of appetite and pupils dilatation are amongst the physical consequences.
There are other drugs as well like anabolic steroids or sedatives that cause different physical and psychological reactions. It is very important to know each drug to prevent any appeal towards taking them.
