It is amazing how drug addiction has grown throughout the world, especially when everyone is so more aware of the risks of drug addiction, and the damage it can cause. And if they are not aware, they can read it anywhere on the internet etc. As for opiate addiction. Year ending March 2020 (latest figures) 51% of people in treatment in the UK are for Opiates.

Common sense? – Drug Addiction
Surely by now common sense would kick in, and drug addiction would be going down year on year. That is what we would like to think. But the truth is, it is going up year on year. How can this be possible. The main reason is the amount of drugs about, and the ease of getting hold of them. Plus the cost is much less than it ever was.
I explain this to a lot of my clients. And I will say it agin. “Every penny spent on illegal drugs goes towards fuelling crime”.
So let us take a new drug dealer. They can start off with a couple of hundred pounds, and in a day they have doubled it £400 or more. The next day to £800. So being realistic, in a month they can have built up a big customer base, and have a few thousand pounds. Now look at their buying power in one month. Within a year they have built up much more money to buy drugs with. So why would you give these drug dealers the satisfaction and your hard earn cash?
Let us look at it. So you:
1/ Know the dangers
2/ You know the risks
3/ Know it will take all your money, however rich you are
4/ You will lose friends and family
5/ Plus You will lose your job
6/ You are giving away your hard earns cash to some scumbag.
So why would you start taking drugs? But millions of people worldwide do every year. And millions of people spend millions of pounds trying to get off the substance they are addicted to. “Is it me, or has the world gone mad!”
