Question and answer
Describe the lifestyle disease/behaviour and explain 5 or more factors that contribute to substance abuse of both legal and illegal drugs among the youth.
Teenagers who have a tendency to seek thrills and adrenaline rushes may be at higher risk of abusing drugs due to the "high" feeling that is achieved from early substance use. [ While everyone enjoys a rush of feel-good chemicals from appropriate sources, some teens get a feeling from drugs that causes them to continue their use despite negative consequences. If a parent sees a pattern of thrill-seeking behavior in his child, he can discuss safe outlets for it versus unsafe drug use.According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, some teenagers begin using drugs as a misguided attempt to
improve sports or academic performance. These teens often have a sense of immortality and do not feel that the drug's negative effects can harm them. All teen athletes should be educated on the dangers of performance enhancing drugs and all students should understand that doing the best they can in their schoolwork is all that is required for their parents to be proud of them.
