Day against drug abuse: do not ruin yourself

June 26 2005

On June 26 the world celebrates World Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Drug Trafficking. This day was adopted by the UN General Assembly. Decision on it came into force on December 7, 1987.

According to the Public Opinion Research Center, the first among the issues of concern to Russians who are drug addicts. She left behind such misfortunes as alcoholism, organized crime and the problems of Chechnya.

According to VTsIOM, the majority of Russians-92% believe that drug use has no justification.

Recently, more and more voices in support of the so-called soft drugs. I will cite in this respect the opinion of Academician Eduard Babayan:

How do you feel about the idea of legalization of soft drugs?

"Sharply negative. And let me tell you that recently the international community is concerned about the topic. Legalization of drugs contrary to the 1961 Single Convention, but most importantly, it contradicts the medical requirements. "

From international experience that once people become addicted to the grass, he begins to take far more serious "relaxing" substance.

Meanwhile, the number of drug addicts in Russia range from 3 to 8 million of them regularly take drugs about 5.99 million people are young - the majority. Officially registered drug addicts in the country is about 500 thousand people and it is only those who himself came and stood on the account.

The representative FSNK Boris Tselinsky noted that "analysis of the structure of drug trafficking and drug analysis shows that, unfortunately, there is a transition to more dangerous types of drugs - heroin, amphetamine-type drugs biosynthesis.

Around the issue of child and youth drug use in recent years has risen a lot of noise, started "active work" ....

Recently, however, Education Minister Andrei Fursenko noted that funding for programs to combat drug addiction, calculated for the period 2005-2009 decreased by four times. What it turns out, the problem identified and talked - talked and calmed down?

Well, okay, let's leave politics alone .... Before the fight against drug addiction, we must pay attention not to get infected by it ....

Will return everything to the same statistics. The main consumers of "intoxicating potions" in Russia are young people under the age of 30. The average age at which they are attached to drugs - 14-16 years.

What makes them tick, what makes their own hands to drive himself to the grave?

Many beginners do not believe that they can happen grief. Each of them thinks that on the one times "there will be nothing that he could cope if you suddenly emerge dependence, due to the force of will he be able to cope, convinced of this, it tastes .... And all the way back there.

Another point .... Addiction is illness psychologically conditioned. Children and adolescents learn about drugs in a similar environment to them - at discos, clubs, at parties. Very often, a novice taking on "little." Fear of becoming an outcast in a particular company, a young man agrees to all ....

And then he becomes the bearer of "contagion." According to statistics, a drug addict in the year draws 5 to 20 people.

But, like all the same to confront this scourge?

The first - throw out of my head the idea that addicts are only those with a predisposition to it, that "they" draws in, and you - do not.

Thoroe - try to listen, the parents or relatives of the plant with you these conversations - not run away, hoping that the company will tell you much more and much detail.

Third - if you say yes, come on, do not worry, nothing will happen if you try ... or you're scared ... "- run, where eyes look on these people from this company.

You just remember the words of the great Omar Khayyam:

To live life wisely, ought to know quite a few,
Remember this simple truth to begin:
You're better than starving, than that is horrible
And better be alone than with anyone.

Think of it as you want, for the sake of some temporary success cripple your life? You then need to be running for some sort of "uncle" who will sell you a dose? Do you want to turn into a creature that lives on the injection site before injection and from breaking up breaking up?
