I often wonder why any one use drugs would. What are the reasons behind taking them? Smiley

Some people opt for even worse weight-loss methods by taking drugs like cocaine and Adderall (which is a drug for ADHD that also apparently suppresses hunger), reportedly used by Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears, respectively. It has also been rumored that, in the modeling industry, horse tranquilizers are an approved weight loss method.

Over the decades, we've seen countless celebrities do the usual dalliance with drugs and alcohol. Many remain addicts to this day, while some died young thanks to a drug or alcohol overdose. There are, however, some notable exceptions, wising up and successfully kicking their deadly drug and alcohol habit before it was too late.

Long before Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears hogged the headlines with their wild child antics, there was Drew Barrymore. At the age of nine, she was already smoking cigarettes. She was an alcoholic at 11, a marijuana smoker by 12, and a cocaine addict by 13. Smiley She went to rehab twice, and even attempted suicide when she was 14 but all that's in the past now. Her wild child days behind her, Barrymore has grown into a sober, responsible and productive woman.

Whatever the situation, an addict has the best chance of surviving the damages of addiction if he or she seeks the assistance of a treatment or rehabilitation center. Each type of addiction is different, and specialized treatments and procedures have been developed to respond to these differences as there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all when it comes to addiction treatment. The most effective way to treat a drug addiction is through drug rehab. A Drug Rehabilitation program helps address the physical and psychological components of addiction through detox, counseling and aftercare.



Many times people abuse drugs or alcohol in order to have "fun" or to get a "buzz." Many individuals, in fact, report that having a few drinks makes them feel more comfortable in social situations. The danger however is this. Repeated drug or alcohol abuse can result in addiction.

Drugs or alcohol, just say NO!!!

"What are the reasons behind taking them? "

I became a "drug addict" when I was suffering from cancer. The doctors did not expect me to live, so they gave me high doses of pain killers for the intense pain I was in. After wards, I really regretted taking so much because I needed them even when I wasn't in pain, and rather than seeking help from a professional, I sought it out amongst my classmates and peers. Unfortunately, their solution was to use heroine and other narcotics to curb the cravings for morphine and oxy.

they may be the idol of millions of youngsters but their lifestyle and shocking behaviours have left parents like me wondering if our kids will follow in their footsteps.
