In What Way Is Your Family Influenced
The lives of your friends and family can be disrupted, as well as causing destruction in your own life. Damage that is not easily repairable can be caused in your family life. This is because, addiction is a disease by which not only the addict is affected but nearly everyone you are in contact with is also affected, especially your family and friends.
At the point when mishandling drugs you don't stop to consider your activities, decisions or the outcomes of them, this causes strife and injury in your own connections that may not be repairable.
The Focus Time And Energy Of An Addict
Getting your hands on drugs and taking them are your top priority, because your drug addiction has taken up a lot of your time, focus and energy. You are left with little time to spend with your family and friends as you have kept such a strong focus on obtaining and using drugs. The result of this is that your loved ones feel hurt, jealous, resentful, and bitter towards your drug use. Because you put drugs before any of your family, your relationships are beginning to dwindle, and so, you may realise that there have been more conflicts with your loved ones.
Drug use can actually bring about financial strain in the welfare of the very user and those of their families. You have caused your family to become penniless because you have been spending any money available to get your drugs and to fund your habit.
Spending hundred, if not thousands of pounds fuelling your drug habit gets very easy for you in as little as one day or a short binge.
You may even lose your job due to the fact that you have a severe addiction that causes you to not longer be able to work properly.
This creates greater weight on your companion who is left to provide for the family alone.
Because of your drug habit, your family have been confronted with the choice of bankruptcy, dispossession, losing their life's investment funds, using retirement reserve funds, and more. Your drug addiction is significantly influencing the welfare and prosperity of your family on a long haul premise.
When Children Are A Part Of It
Drug dependency can bring about emotional trauma even to your children. Your drug misuse may make you distinctly violent, emotionally abusive, or possible sexually abusive towards your children, thus resulting in permanent damage to them. The emotional and psychological abuse can remain in the lives of your kids, which cause severe impacts on their mentality, education, and personality in the long term.
Drug addiction can push children to lose whatever good regard they have of you seeing that you cannot be responsible for yourself as well as for them. Similarly, the nonexistence of any rules and regulations in your home can easily cause your children to lead the same lifestyle as yours in an attempt to get away from the harsh reality they've experienced. At some point, these children may even have the assumption that they are the very reason for your drug use which brings about greater psychological and emotional trauma.
The results shows that the average of 50-80% of youngsters are being abused and abandoned when their parents, or parent, are using drugs or alcohol.
Suffering By Your Partner Or Spouse Also Happens
Spousal or partner physical and emotional abuse may also be caused due to your addiction. Your relationship is badly affected by this. Several close relations are severed due to drug dependency since the drug user often resort to being unfaithful by looking for other ways to satisfy themselves mostly outside of the relationship with some even making up excuses for their decisions. You purely use manipulation and excuse after excuse to justify your mean behaviour in order for your loved one to sympathise with you.
It is approximated that 75% of domestic violence cases are drug or alcohol fuelled by at least one of the individuals.
