The following article and similar research documents on te internet discuss the relationships between poverty, social deprivation/pressure and drug use.
In the previous blogs I did, I walked the Character Dimensions of one type of drug user - the social drug user who makes use of a chemical bridge to assist or suppress certain characteristics and behaviours in social situations. Using the basic formats walked within the process of self-forgiveness and introspection, you are able to see that one can take any type of drug user to identify the dimensions that exist 'behind' why the person uses/relies on drugs, to be able to support oneself through the dimensions, step by steps through the process of introspection, writing, self honesty and self forgiveness.
In this blog, I would like to discuss the economic stressors that cause drug use in people as well as an overview of how we as society are stuck on the problem where more often than not further method of drug addiction and medical/psychological dependencies are relied upon, to alleviate the underlying problems within the individual, instead of looking at what solutions would change any form of 'dependency'.
Within the current capitalistic system, we have become dependent and accepting of the 'solution' to drugs being anything that is presented which will allow another individual/company to make profit. Therefore solutions are not always really solving anything - it simply allows for a market as a product/company or individual presenting a service to present their solution at a price - therefore the problems to drug addiction for example exist as part of a cycle which supports the economy and therefore is not about solutions. This cycle is perpetually feeding the underlying stressors that all humans experience - the cause of drug addiction is based on social economic pressures and the solution is to keep the individual under pressure be it to remain trapped but to cope with their emotional behaviour patterns, or to place such an individual in debt where they now have to continue participating in the money system to pay for therapies and medications to continue living a 'drug' or -'trouble free existence'
So what do I mean when I draw this line between this cycle I indicated where we are always loop back into the capitalistic system between stress, debt and apparent solutions to 'problems' to finding solutions that stop all of these cycles from having to perpetually exist...
