Project Report on Drugs
Dependence
Drugs are prescribed by physicians for the prevention
or treatment of diseases, or for increasing the physical
and mental performance and are withdrawn as soon as
the desired effect is achieved. Repeated use of certain
drugs on a periodic or continuous basis may make the
body dependence. Such drugs are called psychotropic
drugs. They act on the brain and alter behavior,
consciousness, and capacity of perception. Hence, they
are also termed mood-altering drugs. Some people start
taking drugs without medical advice due to one reason
or the other and become drugs dependent.
8
INTRODUCTION TO
"DRUGS ADDICTION"
“Drug Addiction” phrase is made by two words:
(I) Drug
(II) Addiction.
What is meant by a drug?
Any substance, other than food, used in the prevention, diagnosis, all
aviation or treatment of a disease is called a drug. A drug may also be
defined as a chemical which, when taken in some way after the body
function. The drug is also known as a medicine. Generally, the term drugs
applied to any stimulating or depressing substance that can be habituating
or addictive.
Meaning of Addiction
Addiction is the habitual, psychological and physiological dependence on
a substance or practice. Which is beyond voluntary control. A person who
is habituated to a substance or a practice, especially a harmful one, is called
an addict.
9
Classification of Drugs
There are a large number of drugs on which people become dependent.
These are classified into four major groups: sedatives and tranquilizers,
opiate narcotics, stimulants and hallucinogens.
Type of Drug Examples Effect
Sedatives and
Tranquillizers
Barbiturates,
Benzodiazepines
Depress CNS activity
give a feeling of
Calmness,
relaxation,
drowsiness.
Opiate Narcotics Opium, Morphine,
Codeine, Heroin
Suppress brain
activity relaxed
pain.
Stimulants Amphetamines,
Caffeine, Cocaine
Make a person more
wakeful,
alert and active,
cause excitement.
Hallucinogens LSQ, Mescalin,
psilocybin,
Ganja, Charas,
Hashish.
Alter thoughts,
feeling, and
perceptions.
10
Combinations of Drugs and
Alcohol
Some addicts use mixtures of drugs to have immediate ‘kid’ or ‘charge’.
Simultaneous use of drug and alcohol may produce dangerous effects,
including death. When barbiturates and alcohol are taken together, each
doubles the effect of the other. A mixture of cocaine and heroin called
speedball gives a spontaneous kick of cocaine and prolonged pleasure of
heroin.
Combination Effect
1. Alcohol + Barbiturates Markedly increased the
depressant effect.
2. Alcohol + Antihistamines Marked drowsiness
3. Alcohol + Valium Dramatically increases sedative
effect.
4. Alcohol + Marijuana or
Hashish
Decreased coordination
increased reaction time
Impaired judgment.
5. Alcohol + Aspirin Increased changes of damage to
gastric mucosa.
11
How does drug
addiction begin?
There are many factors that lead people to drug addiction.
1. Curiosity: Frequent references to drugs by public media create
curiosity for having a personal experience of the drugs.
2. Friend’s pressure: Frequent appreciation of drug experience by
friends allures others to start the use of drugs.
3. Frustration and Depression: Some people start taking drugs to
get relief from frustration and depression.
4. The desire for More Work: Students sometimes take drugs to
keep awake the whole night to prepare for the examination. It is not
desirable as it may cause a mental breakdown.
5. Looking for a Different World: A wrong notion that the drugs
open up a new world tempts some young octets to start taking-drugs.
6. Relief from Pain: A prolonged use of pain-relieving drugs with
physician’s advice at times leads to addiction.
7. Family History: Children may take to drugs by seeing their elders
in the family.
8. Excitement and Adventure: The young take to drugs to satisfy
their instinct for excitement and adventure.
12
Social Disease - Smoking,
Drinking, and Use of Drugs
Smoking and drinking and use of drugs frequently or
regularly are social diseases. They adversely affect the health
of the addicts and the society. Young people take to these
habits for fun, show off or curiosity, as an adventure or
feeling of freedom, or as a gesture of defiance against the
elders who themselves indulge in these activities but check
the youngsters. Other factors that make people take to these
vices are the inability to face problems of life indifference
shown by members of the family and encouragement or
pressure by friends. A temporary escape from the life
problems and mental relaxation felt on taking the drugs in
the beginning increase person’s interest in them. Soon they
become habitual and find in difficult to leave. The daily dose
to get the desired effect increases with time.
As in other countries, the menace of drug addiction is
spreading in India also. A large number of our young men
and women have taken to intoxicants. About 87.6 per cent
drug addicts are between the ages of 14 and 25 years.
13
Tobacco
Sources:
It is a native of South Africa, where the
Red Indian first started smoking. Now
the tobacco plant has spread the world
over. It has large, quote to lanceolate
leaves and terminal clusters of tubular, white or pink flowers.
Modes of Use:
Tobacco is used for smoking, chewing and snuffing. Its main
stimulating component is poisonous volatile alkaloid nicotine,
which causes addiction. Nicotine synthesis occurs in the roots of the
plant but it is stored in the leaves. The leaves contain 2 to 8%
nicotine. Inhaling tobacco smoke from cigars, cigarettes, biddies,
pipes and hubble-bubble is called smoking. The cigar is a roll of
tobacco leaf. The cigarette is cut tobacco wrapped in paper. Bidi is
tobacco wrapped. In a piece of leaf. Tobacco smoke is drawn
directly from the pipe and through water is hubble-bubble. Smoking
may give some temporary relief to the strained nerves but in the
long run, it proves a dangerous health hazard. The quantity of
nicotine contained in one cigar may prove fatal if injected
intravenously into a person. When smoked only 10% of the smoke
is inhaled. Hence, no immediate ill effect is observed. Smokers may
develop a physiological craving for nicotine and then they cannot
give up smoking.
14
Effect of Nicotine:
Nicotine is a low concentration.
(i) Stimulates conduction of nerve
impulses.
(ii) Relaxes the muscles.
(iii) Releases adrenaline, increasing heart beat rate and pressure.
(iv) Increased blood pressure due to smoking chances the risk of
heart diseases.
(v) Retards foetal growth in expecting mothers and
(vi) Causes tobacco addiction. High concentration of nicotine
paralyzes nerve cells.
Other Harmful components of Tobacco Smoke:
Besides the poisonous nicotine, the tobacco smoke contains carbon-
monoxide, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and tar.
Other Effects:
(i) Smoking effects economy: A smoker not only waste money but
also runs the risk of burns and fires.
(ii) Smoking mars personality: Teeth may become stained. Lips may
get discolored and breath becomes foul. A person with a cigarette
hanging from the mouth looks odd.
(iii) Smoking is annoying to others: Cigarette smoke is quite
annoying to non-smokers. It may prove even more harmful to
them. A smoker should avoid smoking. When in the company of
non-smokers. A smoker makes the person nearby person’s passive
smokers through inhaling smoke released by him.
15
Alcohol
Sources:
Ethyl alcohol, or ethanol, flammable, colorless liquid having a penetrating
odour and burning taste. It is one of the products of the distillation of
fermented grains, fruit juices and starches with the help of yeast enzymes. It
is the principal constituent and the intoxicating principle of wines.
Modes of Use:
Alcohol is taken in low concentration, as the beer, toddy, and wine and in
relatively high concentration as arrack, brandy, whiskey, rum, gin, vodka
etc.
Addiction:
Addiction to alcohol is called alcoholism. Alcoholics are found in all society
section of society. Alcohol causes intoxication and thus, acts as a poison.
They drinkers begin with small doses, but many of them soon start
consuming large doses and become addicts. By the time they realize that
drinking in adversely affecting them, it is too late to give it up.
Why People Take to Drinking:
The drinkers offer one or more of the following reasons for starting drinking.
(i) Social pressure
(ii) Desire for excitement
(iii) Feeling of independence
(iv) Liking of taste
(v) Desire to escape from such realities of life as disappointments and
failures and
(vi) The desire to offset the hardships and monotony of daily life.
16
What happens when Alcohol is
consumed?
Alcohol is quickly absorbed in
the stomach and upper part of
small intestine and reaches all
the tissues in minutes. Its
oxidation starts at once and a
large amount of heat in
produced. Since heat is not
needed in the body, it is taken up by the blood and carried to the skin for
dissipation. Since the receptors of heat are located in the skin, the rush of
blood to the skin gives a false impression of warmth in the body. The blood
supply of internal organs is greatly reduced resulting in fall of temperature
in them. The energy released by alcohol is not used in any life process.
Rather the energy derived from food is used up in ridding the body of excess
heat.
Is Alcohol A Stimulant?
Many people take alcohol for stimulation. Actually, alcohol is a depressant,
a substance which dulls the senses. It reduces the efficiency of every tissue
the body. Any feeling of lift a person may claim to feel is a mistaken
impression or an attempt to justify the act in his own mind.
17
Conclusions
Drug use and addiction cause a lot of disease and disability in the
world. Recent advances in neuroscience may help improve policies
to reduce the harm that the use of tobacco, alcohol and other
psychoactive drugs impose on society.

  • 12. 12 Social Disease - Smoking, Drinking, and Use of Drugs Smoking and drinking and use of drugs frequently or regularly are social diseases. They adversely affect the health of the addicts and the society. Young people take to these habits for fun, show off or curiosity, as an adventure or feeling of freedom, or as a gesture of defiance against the elders who themselves indulge in these activities but check the youngsters. Other factors that make people take to these vices are the inability to face problems of life indifference shown by members of the family and encouragement or pressure by friends. A temporary escape from the life problems and mental relaxation felt on taking the drugs in the beginning increase person’s interest in them. Soon they become habitual and find in difficult to leave. The daily dose to get the desired effect increases with time. As in other countries, the menace of drug addiction is spreading in India also. A large number of our young men and women have taken to intoxicants. About 87.6 per cent drug addicts are between the ages of 14 and 25 years.
  • 13. 13 Tobacco Sources: It is a native of South Africa, where the Red Indian first started smoking. Now the tobacco plant has spread the world over.

Its main stimulating component is poisonous volatile alkaloid nicotine, which causes addiction. Nicotine synthesis occurs in the roots of the plant but it is stored in the leaves. The leaves contain 2 to 8% nicotine. Inhaling tobacco smoke from cigars, cigarettes, biddies, pipes and hubble-bubble is called smoking. The cigar is a roll of tobacco leaf. The cigarette is cut tobacco wrapped in paper. Bidi is tobacco wrapped. In a piece of leaf. Tobacco smoke is drawn directly from the pipe and through water is hubble-bubble. Smoking may give some temporary relief to the strained nerves but in the long run, it proves a dangerous health hazard. The quantity of nicotine contained in one cigar may prove fatal if injected intravenously into a person. When smoked only 10% of the smoke is inhaled. Hence, no immediate ill effect is observed. Smokers may develop a physiological craving for nicotine and then they cannot give up smoking.
  • 14. 14 Effect of Nicotine: Nicotine is a low concentration. (i) Stimulates conduction of nerve impulses. (ii) Relaxes the muscles. (iii) Releases adrenaline, increasing heart beat rate and pressure. (iv) Increased blood pressure due to smoking chances the risk of heart diseases. (v) Retards foetal growth in expecting mothers and (vi) Causes tobacco addiction. High concentration of nicotine paralyzes nerve cells. Other Harmful components of Tobacco Smoke: Besides the poisonous nicotine, the tobacco smoke contains carbon- monoxide, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and tar. Other Effects: (i) Smoking effects economy: A smoker not only waste money but also runs the risk of burns and fires. (ii) Smoking mars personality: Teeth may become stained. Lips may get discolored and breath becomes foul. A person with a cigarette hanging from the mouth looks odd. (iii) Smoking is annoying to others: Cigarette smoke is quite annoying to non-smokers. It may prove even more harmful to them. A smoker should avoid smoking. When in the company of non-smokers. A smoker makes the person nearby person’s passive smokers through inhaling smoke released by him.
  • 15. 15 Alcohol Sources: Ethyl alcohol, or ethanol, flammable, colorless liquid having a penetrating odour and burning taste.

  • 16. 16 What happens when Alcohol is consumed? Alcohol is quickly absorbed in the stomach and upper part of small intestine and reaches all the tissues in minutes. Its oxidation starts at once and a large amount of heat in produced. Since heat is not needed in the body, it is taken up by the blood and carried to the skin for dissipation. Since the receptors of heat are located in the skin, the rush of blood to the skin gives a false impression of warmth in the body. The blood supply of internal organs is greatly reduced resulting in fall of temperature in them. The energy released by alcohol is not used in any life process. Rather the energy derived from food is used up in ridding the body of excess heat. Is Alcohol A Stimulant? Many people take alcohol for stimulation. Actually, alcohol is a depressant, a substance which dulls the senses. It reduces the efficiency of every tissue the body. Any feeling of lift a person may claim to feel is a mistaken impression or an attempt to justify the act in his own mind.
  • 17. 17 Conclusions Drug use and addiction cause a lot of disease and disability in the world. Recent advances in neuroscience may help improve policies to reduce the harm that the use of tobacco, alcohol and other psychoactive drugs impose on society. Bibliography See H.
