Who are to be blamed on the growing addiction of children to drugs and alcohol intake Adult consumers are too. They should realize that drugs are poisons, and so use them only when their possible benefits may outweigh their harm. Yet if adults take drugs for every problem or tension, or even for pleasure, why should youths avoid them Is it surprising that young ones should reason: 'If grown-ups use tobacco, get drunk and take pills, why shouldn't I enjoy myself smoking marijuana or taking "downers"'
That parental drug use is a factor in children's turning to drugs has been documented by various studies. For example, a major Canadian study calls drug abuse a "learned behavior." "Adolescents modeled their drug use after parental use," psychiatrists from Toronto's Addiction Research Foundation explained. Surely, then, if you do not want your children to abuse drugs, you should not smoke, abuse alcohol or needlessly take pills. But more than a proper adult example is needed. Proper association outside the home is also vital. A study by Friends of Psychiatric Research found that eighty-four out of every one hundred addicts were introduced to drugs by their "friends." When offered drugs, many young people take them out of curiosity. They may, at first, find the effects pleasurable. But then they become "hooked," and soon are in terrible trouble. Yes, in the case of Janet, if her addiction to alcohol would not be well given attention, it would likely result to graver situations on the child.
