The cobweb of addiction

We often wonder why people use alcohol and drugs despite knowing the addictive nature of these substances. Researchers suggested various factors, such as biological and environmental ones. However, popular myths among society often indicate moral failure, which points to the absence of willpower and the lack of desire to give up alcohol and other drugs. In our community, these harsh judgments have deviated the problem of addiction into a social stigma; therefore, addicts find themselves alone in the addiction cobweb.

The cobweb of addiction has some time has enough power to engulf the family and the future of a person. For instance, in certain extreme cases, the excessive consumption of alcohol by a male member in a house can result in loss of a job, which further accumulated with health problems and causes financial instability. Moreover, wife and children often neglected and sometimes face trauma including violence and abuse in the house.
Should the cobweb of addiction does not address early, it can swallow the hopes and dreams of an entire family.

The people using drug and alcohol need help rather than harsh judgement. The cobweb of addiction sometimes doesn’t let them out in spite of their motivation. To fight with the entanglement of addiction, we need to develop a community-based approach to help people, families and children trapped in a cobweb of addiction
