The influence of drugs in Ecuadorian citizens
The intervention of drugs in the world has a long career during which its history has changed totally since it not only serves as use to create medications, but it is because of its action and meaning has been involved in the living of people, of way that its use is not medicinal, but is consumed by curiosity, influence of friendship or by problems in your daily life.
For this reason I have decided to deal with this issue of drug use that affect the Ecuadorian individual. In my opinion, the acquisition of these substances in Ecuador was only restricted for the use of drugs, however, under the former presidency of the economist Rafael Correa Delgado, a reform was approved where a person was legally established that a person can dispose of a certain amount of grams of drugs in their possession.
Therefore, to what extent does drug use affect the Ecuadorian individual; dose that can be acquired? In such a way that Ecuadorian and foreign citizens who live in our country can access a certain amount of these substances knowing that their use would become excessive, that is, these people would consume more of the indicated gram, harming all their lives, whether socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially, be it socially. Economic, psychology and health, so it would lead him to commit several crimes, since drug use becomes an addiction with irremediable causes and consequences.
By exceeding a certain amount of these substances, it is punishable according to the COIP, but the beginning of this problem, it really goes from the same Constitution of the Republic of Ecuador where it is instituted that the use of drugs is allowed under certain circumstances, that is where It is already established from all manifestation and establishment of drug use not only for adults, but these more vulnerable individuals are involved that children and adolescents are.
For drugs there are large rehabilitation centers if a person wishes to be part of it, however, the possible is, but the problem is that it is difficult to access it, getting out of these addictions is a great battle that requires a lot of help Family and professional, however, everything is in each one decides by not accepting or accepting, that is why destiny is mentioned is in their own hands.
So that the types of drugs that can affect the Ecuadorian individual are depressing drugs because they are medicines such as analgesics to calm pain, although many of the people use them to commit suicide for problems of problems or for the main reason that is low self – esteem, stimulating drugs are those that accelerate the functioning of the brain causing high excite.
How does drug use influence society?
Drugs have become a problem dependent on all kinds, it is no longer part of just being a medicinal help plant that with other substances are contribution for all types of disease, but the human being becomes more and more dependent on it Look for the form and does his best to acquire it, it is increasingly immersed not only in body, but also in the mind and in the feeling of being able to have it in his hands.
Drug use is part of the entire world and small societies, in Ecuador it is a very uncertain battle of every day, likewise this fight in large rehabilitation institutions, they are a fundamental support and pillar for the recovery of certain individuals for get ahead, which takes help of certain special care of a great professional capacity so that your recovery is very efficient.
According to García & Sánchez, he mentions that “a society without drugs is a mirage and its denial is nothing but a way of feeding it. Actually, no organized community can live without chemical shock absorbers. those who claim that the drug is a roof not a plague ”(p. 17), knowing that there is a way to get rid of that dependence on any type of drugs that it ingests becomes a torment, it is a reality that is lived daily.
It is very large so that there is not only that influence in those places or sites of exchange for a substance and money, the worst thing is that in educational institutions students are the ones that most easily obtain drugs since there is no supervision and If there is this, the main authority of these schools or schools do what they think in assumption is still totally restricted and they do not instruct the necessary character towards the situation.
But students are not wrapped alone in those drug dependence problems, in effect what this conflict really shares and allows society to be destroyed more and more are the same adults who do nothing but harm children without any guilt, teaching them attitudes that this learn only with observing to then become drug addicts.
In addition, adults or adolescents involve their life of drug addiction both in their families and those around them causing problems and causing other young people to achieve this substance and thus spread the maximum drug use in society that is found.
This is consumed in plants found even in their homes or the most commonly used form that is in the absorption of the substance by building bad characters by the people of their society saying that they steal, kill, who are young people who think that drug addiction solves Their problems know that their parents have influence on them, since some of these young people resort to drugs for the problems of their parents and others by the influence of their friends thus allowing the destruction of their organism.
People who are drug addicts do not use the proactive thinking of things before acting without taking into account the consequences that the situation can bring in which they are wrapped thinking that what they do is just a game, in themselves they act without thinking how This is the case of the robberies made by them since their intentions are planned and then obtained their objective.
Drugs and society are influence. Some people feel the need to integrate into a specific social group or not feel rejected by him.
“Sometimes, one of the visible instruments that are used in this process of integration or belonging to a group is drug use, so that the consumption can be initiated to be able to enter the group and it is not ceased in this habit for Avoid the exclusion of him ".
What effects cause drugs in the organic system?
People who consume drugs do not know the consequences that arise in their organism or if they know they do not give importance and make the mistake of damaging their nervous system causing their destruction that over time leads to cause their death.
Drug substances can cause various diseases and mainly affect our brain acting in the frontal nervous system, as well as in the liver causing this substance to destroy it and this affects our entire body.
The consumer of this substance is pregnant with the effects that occur are given in the fetus that is just being developed having physiological damage or even when children are born, they may suffer from mental disorders, low weight, or it can cause a spontaneous abortion mainly In adolescents since they are not well developed or minutes and because drugs have damaged their body which is fundamental to the baby’s development.
All drugs affect our body, one of the most common is alcohol which irreversibly destroys the areas of memory affecting the brain that is responsible for coordination, the cerebral cortex all components of the brain, this drink also It affects the liver, stomach, as well as the lungs producing cardiovascular difficulties, one of these substances is marijuana this affects the concentration of people and produces short -term memory thus increasing a risk of psychotic disorders, cocaine, it is a substance That alters the heart and produces the risk of infarction causing paranoia and a lot They deteriorate it completely thinning both inside and out.
One of the most used drugs is morphine, which helps you control pain and be able to hide it, just consuming in small doses of the substance, all these drugs have an effect on the body of a person giving consequences and others may help As are the medications, one of the effects when consuming them in excess of dose produces headache, although the dose is controlled is the effect on the disease and helps to relieve it.
The diseases that these drugs can cause are anorexia or bulimia, since excessive drug consumption destroys your body causing its weight to decrease giving pass to chronic diseases that exhaust your energy and destroy your body.
Addictions cause the body to alter and mainly the brain that is the main part of our body, affecting it with degenerative disorders and wasting its function, “the brain receives, integrates, processes the information and sends different signals to regulate multiple functions in the Organism Functions in the body, from the implementation of one’s behavior to the regulation of different homeostatic mechanisms and endocrine and immune systems ”.
Losing memory causes wear of learning capacity, decreases frequently, that is, the loss of normal vocabulary.
“Drugs exert their effects through the action on different transmission systems. We can say that the acute effects of a drug produce an alteration in the availability of one or more neurotransmitters. The continuous use of the drug will produce changes in the number of receptors on which neurotransmitters interact ”which produces that your brain does not analyze the situation well and that there is no chemical connection with neurons.
How does drug use affect psychologically in people?
Every person can be affected when consuming of drugs, but the most affected are adolescents, since they are the ones who most consume this substance, drug addicts do not know the kind of behaviors they present to other people using aggressive and disrespectful behaviors Giving signs of bad behaviors and causing contempt for them, consuming this substance for young.
The problems that an individual lives daily are part of mental psychology, a person without any reason cannot consume out of nowhere, there is always a why, when belonging and being part of a problem causes consequences, given that, what he is feeling It demonstrates it with a behavior, the symptoms that occur in a person who consumes drugs are specifically evidence of their way of being, it is not easy to differentiate but if one is likely to observe and realize the situation.
“One of the problems caused by drugs is the anxiety generated by daily conflicting situations either at work, in the street or at school, it causes insomnia and this makes us irritable. As we do not rest, our brain is helpless in front of it, it has no tools to face them. We lose the critical (proactive) mind and instead, we use the creation; Action Reaction".
Anxiety is the most found in drug addicts since they demonstrate their bad behaviors or the despair of wanting to consume the substance. The substances that affect psychologically, are the ones that are most important, alcohol, barbiturates and narcotics are drugs that act by decreasing neuronal functioning, all offer pleasant effects, it is true, although their price is very, but harms the memory, loss of conscience and cause other physical consequences.
The most consumed drug in the environment of our environment is “caffeine, nicotine, amphetamines, cocaine and ecstasy stimulate neuronal functioning. Like most psychotic drugs. They act in synapses influencing neurotransmitters of the brain and their effects depend on personality and the expectations of the consumer and the dose ”since each other are low cost and easy to acquire, even as well as making us understand that all of them produce alteration neuronal.
LSD and marijuana can distort the perception of consumer time and, according to the situation, can alter sensations and perceptions.
“The person’s mental health is affected more in household relationships and with friends expressing to see other people with another character and attitude, normally during the period of early to intermediate adolescence, personal needs and social pressures They direct adolescents at least towards a friendship group, because the alternative is loneliness and isolation ”(John C. Coleman, 2003, p. 152) These are reasons why they are far away and make mistakes from which when consuming is difficult to get away.
“The factors by which a teenager is introduced to drug use are multiple and interrelated. In addition to family, social, school and group factors, drug addiction is more frequent in individuals with low self – esteem, immaturity, frustration intolerance, shyness, insecurity, affective dependence, feelings of guilt inferiority, nonconformity or constant search for New sensations ”they feel that the sensations of their body are normal although many feel a little fear of their consumption but do it for the influence of friends or wanting to consume this substance.
“A drug can be consumed once or even several and then abandoned (although there are described cases of addiction by a single heroin taking). However, on many occasions it is passed from occasional to the usual consumption, and from this to the compulsive, with which that person has already entered the field of dependence ”.
To finish drugs, they are a very alarming problem in Ecuador, it is sought that avoiding the consumption of these toxic substances, but cannot be restricted, since their consumption is legally stipulated.
In Ecuador, the people who consume drugs most are adolescents, they are externally influenced, due to family problems or other conflicts that facilitate induction to the world of drugs, the greatest daily use of alcohol, inhaling and marijuana not only See at home, but it is very observable in the streets especially at night, both in urban or rural areas.
Colleges are institutions that should prevail, promote and avoid drug use to society and those young people improving their future, but there is not even control by the authorities and especially for their relatives.
This has become a problem with society causing more people to join this consumption such as children, adolescents and even adults who are the cause of drug addiction in young people for their bad habits and teachings, all places from the most villages Little Ecuador are being affected by the consumption of these substances, it is even everyone.
“Parents and the family in general must be invited to participate in health education activities, where they can carry out the following functions: intervene in the design and evaluation of health education activities through their activity in the available participation organs: ensure the educational continuity of the processes initiated in the school; Protect the educational actions of contradictory attitudes, values or behaviors that can reduce the effectiveness of the educational process ”.
Young people should always have due control by parents taking into account the type of behavior, qualifications at school, they must have conversations with their children and the same the authorities of their squad such as the psychologist.
“If the drug problem is considered to be a social problem, marginality, prevention remains a problem of certain neighborhoods and schools where almost nothing can be done. All action in that line would be to enter a land that is not the school itself and, therefore, that it would not have to be in. Precisely those that are enriched with the sale of drugs want to consider a social problem so that there is no solution ”.
Every Ecuadorian person nobody restricts the right to achieve something that you want by their own will, especially if you want anything for its use, but realize reality and think about its causes and consequences, it is better to prevent, avoid these consumptions than They will not lead anywhere, even better the warm life but worsen it by bringing diseases that will be complicated over time destroying not only an organ, but that this will be degenerative destroying the entire cephalocaudal organic system.
We must think that the "forces" that concur to weaken the teenager’s will and that consumption begins are very different, strong and persuasive. The "forces" to use for prevention must be, at least, the same intensity and bathed in affection (Aguilá, 2016, p. 27)
A world without drugs is not the world because it is part of the medications that help the treatment of diseases, but exaggerating and proposing laws for use is the most disastrous perdition that can exist, only a good leader can help control this problem restricting its use and eliminated these laws.
However, it is difficult and unlikely that this changes, even so, the best thing to do is prepare every psychologically Ecuadorian individual, so that certain conflicts such as suicide and homicide can be reduced, giving advice, seeking and avoiding are The best options especially talk with children and adolescents we will avoid deaths from drug use.
