When an addiction attacks your tender teens!
Addiction in teens has become an important and social stumbling block in current situations. Dealing with this staggering issue also is not an easy task, but we can not just give up on this as it is the matter of our innocent teens. We feel highly responsible to help our teens to restart their lives leaving all the foul habits behind. Teens are like innocent budding flowers who need a lot of care and love, then only they can see their futures. Our job is to carefully watch them growing in the stages of their lives without disturbing their privacy. But many times, it happens when in the name of freedom, we unsee their regular activities and it becomes a trouble. Teenagers are more lenient to new activities, as they do not think a lot before choosing something exciting. Not knowing the drawbacks of addiction, many teenagers practice dreadful abusive substances and destroy their forthcoming beautiful future. So our rehab proficients recommend parents to keep an eye on their kids or teens.
Gambling, video gaming, alcohol, porn-watching and drugs are the common ill-suited habits that teenagers fall into. So it is very much essential that you need to observe the behaviour of your kid. As teenage is the perfect time for every new single adventure, make sure you do not lose the life of your child in the hands of a dangerous addiction. Among a lot of reasons behind the mass movement of teens towards addiction, here are a few listed ones:
To deal with exam pressure and career tension, many of the teens choose to drink and smoke thinking it can give them a state of relaxation, which is completely untrue. As experts say that abusive substances react with our brain cells to make us feel good, which is instant and unhealthy. These are unhealthy coping mechanisms to deal with acute psychological issues like stress, depression, etc.
Being in a gang of teens, friends explore new adventures all the time. Having fun together in school and college days is not an issue, but what sort of fun is included there is a matter of concern. No doubt, people do a lot of things in the influence of their friends, but teens have no idea how to assess their actions and repercussions.
Must have seen some specific school parties where boozing and smoking gives you an entree into the party. To have new friends, new groups, many teens start an awful habit as an experience. But with time, it becomes an addiction and a regular habit spoiling their present and future.
In some families, teens grow up seeing their elders being indulged in alcoholism, drug-ism, etc. and a lot of family-shoutings. And so they realize things have to be in this way forever and assume that they are allowed to consume abusive substances without any guilt. So they also imitate their elders in the same way and it continues further on. With this, we must understand a family atmosphere plays a big role in the upbringing process of a child.
With addiction you will see a lot of changes in your teen both mentally and physically. Like losing weight, mood swings, being socially disconnected, lacking motivation and self-control, inactive during classes, etc are the signs that you may find in a teen with some sort of dreadful addiction.
