Traits that are loosely dependent on the environment include addiction ability and education level. Addiction is a strange trait, some people can start smoking and quit whenever they want while other people can start smoking and just cannot stop. This could be dependent upon social conditions, for instance, they are encouraged to continue smoking by their friends; however, it is far more likely that this trait is genetic. This is not only true of smoking though, it is true of any drug: alcoholism is one of the more common ones and more easily related to genetics. The thing that makes addiction partially due to the environment is that the will to start doing a drug has to come from somewhere and most often, it is due to the environment.
As I read this article, and continued my research on this topic, I have come to a decision. I disagree with the argument the electronic cigarettes will lead to the addictive use of traditional cigarettes. As more and more people purchase and use these electronic cigarettes, they become addicted to the artificial flavors of the e-juice and the nicotine, not the idea of traditional cigarettes. The multiple different flavors draw their attention, the nicotine is just the one thing they don’t pay as much attention to. They continue making new flavors that grab the attention of teens and young adults which is the reason more and more teens and young adults begin “smoking” electronic cigarettes.
Smoking is very harmful and it is better to switch to Vaping then to keep smoking because Vaping is better for the environment, more people are switching to e-cigs, and Vaping helps with mental issues. Encourage your family members that smoke cigarettes to stop and switch not just for you but for everyone around them. Tell people about the benefits of vaping and how smoking negatively affects everything around them. Get a jewel for a person that smokes so the smoker that you know doesnt hurt themselves by smoking in the toxic chemicals. Vaping is going to be and constant growing corporation and as the years move forward it will grow even larger and people will switch to
The question of whether to legalize marijuana or not is a very controversial and important issue. Many people especially teenagers are thrilled that the law enforcement is legalizing marijuana as they will not have to buy it illegally. Legalizing marijuana will allow people to think it is acceptable for us to smoke every day, at any time, which increases the drug use. What people are unaware of are the negative effects it will have on their lives. Adolescences will be more prone to buy marijuana, which will not let them focus on their studies.
Erin Digitale interviewed a Stanford MD graduate Seth Ammerman, adolescent medicine specialist who studies and has worked with teenagers who use drugs. He explained how the brain isn’t fully developed until a person hits their mid- twenties and, “the younger you start using drugs regularly, the more likely you are to become addicted” (Digitale). “One in 10 adolescents who use marijuana become addicted” (Digitale). Once they become addicted, they are less likely to finish their education, and suffer from depression.. Personally, I have seen my own friends and people in my community growing up become addicted to marijuana because of trying it at such a young age.
The ones who do smoke aren 't "cool" because of that, they 're just worshipped more because they do it. According to The Canadian Lung Association, "my friends smoke" and "I thought it was cool" are two of the main reasons those between the ages of 12 and 17 start smoking. With this in mind, it 's pretty obvious that people are scared to do the right thing, and lead the wrongdoers to following them instead. "More than 25 percent of youths who had been approached by someone selling drugs in the month before the survey had used marijuana in the past month." The fact that there are dealers around teens ' neighborhoods could persuade them even more to experiment.
Drug addiction is a form of a chronic disease, relapsing of the brain causes compulsive behaviors to seek drug use. Despite the harmful consequences that are a result of a drug addiction, millions of people still abuse drugs. The addiction is a disease of the brain because of the abuse of drugs, which causes a change in the structures, and functions of the brain. Drugs are chemicals that tap into the brain's communication system and change the way nerve cells normally send, receive, and process information. Even though it is true that most people initially make the decision to take drugs is a voluntary action and is not forced upon you.
There are several types of drug testing and these are: • Pre-employment Drug Testing It is the most common type of drug testing wherein it requires a candidate to undergo after a formal “Conditional Offer of Employment”. • Random Drug Testing Random drug testing prevents employee workplace drug abuse. It is considered as the most effective preventive measure to deter employees from involving themselves with drug simply because of the fear of losing their job if they are caught. This does not only increase their productivity, but it also helps them to adopt a healthier lifestyle. • Reasonable Suspicions Drug Testing This may be the most uncommon type of drug testing because not all companies may have even bothered to train their supervisors and managers on how to recognize indicators of employee drug use.
For a long time social media has been a part of society 's influence for negative body image. The individuals who are more influence generally speaking, are teenagers through the age of young adult women and men. Their faced daily with the Internet, magazines, and television. Depending on how self-conscious the person may be, all of this disposer to the media could lead them down the road to having depression and disordered eating structures. Even though it is true some social media and television entertainment promotes self-love and acceptance, there is an equal to or more than amounts of promoters for body shame over certain body types, suggesting that we change ourselves to fit in if we don 't already look the part.
This opposition to change toward people like Tessie can also be seen in history. For instance, take the war on smoking tobacco. Tobacco was seen to be cool and okay for many years and was a common hobby of many people. As research was found to show the damage tobacco can do there were still people opposed banning it because it was a way of life to them and even in a new age where everyone know the harms of tobacco and not many people smoke, there are still older people who believe in it as well as some young people starting. Moreover, in “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson the person vs society problem shows how different people think and how morals shape
Growing up in today 's society I personally have witnessed much addictions to drugs whether that was through a tv show or in person happening to someone that I know. Many of the main causes for people to use drugs are the same causes that lead people to use soma in the book. The message that is shown through this quote I something that I definitely do not agree with as it is giving people an easy way out of their problems for a short amount of time rather than dealing with them and having them gone forever. The theme of this quote is shown to be through community and common good which is what people think this drug is doing to them is helping them in a way that will make them never feel pain in a way, but what it is really doing to them is hurting them and starting an addiction. The same lessons can be learned from Hamlet as lying to someone about what they have done could come back to hurt someone else in the end which happens in both Hamlet and Brave New World when King Claudius tries to poison Hamlet, but instead poisons his new wife Queen Gertrude.
