Drugs is a big problem in many countries. Governments struggle to eliminate or contain them. Communities are devastated; families are destroyed, and lives are lost.
We assume that drugs are only rampant in poor and depressed neighborhood, but consumption is prevalent across all spectrum of society: athletes, high school students, wall street bankers, and even government officials. We've hear them all in the news.
We often blame crime to the collapse of law and order and the corrosion of family values and society's decency. But we fail to see destructive effect of drugs.
Drugs is addictive and destructive. But what is even insidious is our inability to delay gratification. I believe this is the cause of many of the ails in our society, including the rampant use of drugs.
Our desire for immediate joy and happiness is really at the core of the problem. Our desire to experience the good stuff without having to pay for it, to work for it, is what's driving us to use drugs. Drugs promise immediate feelings of joy and happiness without having to work for it. Drugs promise to make us winners—illusory it may be—and crush all competition... at the expense of our well being.
