They start changing their lifestyle, they start leaving their sober friends and start making new friends who use drugs, some people distance themselves from family and friends and likes to use drugs alone. This problem is increasing day by day and many young people have lost their lives due to it. We should keep in mind that addiction is a bio, socio, psycho and spiritual disease. All of these factors are highly affected by addiction. Addiction is a non-curable but manageable disease, which keeps progressing with time, and anyone can have another disease because of addiction. It is life-threatening and can only be managed when a person completely changes his lifestyle.
Some people agree and some don’t, such as, a blogger refuses to believe and says that, every important belief is disapproved both by science and everyday life. However, it’s true for alcohol and drug use. However, many other actions are related to treatment and biology.
To access this problem with a fine head, we should try to find the thoughts of a person, which helps to find a clear image of addiction. By that, we can get to know that why addiction is strong, full of problems, and not an ordinary disease.
The view of a person and structure of his mind:
It looks like that it’s weird to have talked about the point of view of addiction by a person, but it’s essential. The decisions of a person are according to its choices.
A study of human minds structure tells that only a group of related things in our mind is loyal to one’s action planned idea. We have a response system that helps us to participate in difficult actions like walking. A person doesn’t get why he is able to walk but, he can surely walk if needed. Humans also have to observe the mind which helps them to observe the world with senses also to have needs and wants, feeling emotions of anger and happiness. We can gather these actions and call them primary actions in which actions take place suddenly and automatically without one self-action.
Adults are also humans because they have their actions, reasoning minds and are deliberate about their behaviors and emotions. We can call this drowsy, with more energy and a deliberative process.
A double reasoning struggle to addiction
To learn about primary and secondary actions we have to learn how they take place and work in different ways. The primary actions are quick, answers to rising and falling needs react by combinations, behavior-based, and responds quickly within seconds or minutes. Secondary actions on the other hand are more energy consuming, work on a large scale, express arguments, reasons and work with a large time and slowly within hours, days, weeks, and even months or years. Such as a piece of cake, the secondary actions think about the coming months and think about their health and thus come to a decision of not eating it. But, primary actions don’t care or wait and eat it.
Addiction is a primary action that overcomes secondary action with superior strength
By having simple knowledge we are now in an improved position of understanding the addiction. Addiction is a position by which primary actions are overcoming secondary actions. Addictive things hit the pleasure system for at least a short time and rewards of pleasure happen, A cigarette, the high after a few drinks, the flow of cocaine high, the smooth and pleasure effect of opioid use, all of this is a part of craving for primary actions.
People differ in a large number in the condition of what is happened and why. But, the necessary forming quality of addiction when primary actions are so demanding that it cannot control according to goods and reasonable decision making. And thus, it expands in a way that it has inappropriate results, and individual and other happenings of people clash with each other and have stress about it. The overthrowing of secondary actions by primary actions means that when an addict talks about how he cannot control it and takes action for his cravings. This study grants us to back to the question of whether addiction is a disease or not? Normally speaking, addiction is not a form of disease by which other forms are developed because mostly, there isn’t a defect in brain biology. Actual diseases like heart diseases and cancer have biological defects and are considered dangerous. Thus, in that situations, there are crucial differences in the brain, mostly in drugs like opioids and usually, it’s a thing that is not managed by the secondary person part of the brain. Its fact has a shred of evidence that most of the opioid addicts need the assistance of medicines in treatment.
So, Addiction is a strong, full of problems nature that triggers primary actions in a way that it rejects the authority of secondary actions. So, to advance the arrangement of systematic changes in different levels for example primary movement awakening states, biological and physical management
