On Todays News: The Addiction Problem
"Hey guys! Can I come in and talk for a bit? I need to ask you guys about something."
"Of course Johnny! Is everything okay?"
"Did you guys by chance see the news this morning? I think I may have a problem with drugs."
"Yes, we did see it Johnny. You came to the right place Jack and I will try the best to help you out"
"You know I'm not sure. I've heard it's from your personality."
"Are you sure Jill? Because I heard it's from biology, that addiction is passed down by your parents."
"So what's the cause of addiction? Why is this happening to me?"
"This is all that I have heard... Not a single personality can become addicted. Personalities A and B are said to use drugs for different reasons because of different personality traits. Especially when personality disorders come into play."
"Is there anything else you guys know about addiction?"
"What I have heard is that... Someone's number of neurotransmitters contribute to addiction. That your genes lead to addiction. If your parents are addicts it is easier for you to follow in their footsteps."
"Hmmmm, I think we need to find more out about what causes addiction."
"I'm here for a friend and a neighbor Johnny. I would just like to know, how can both personality and biology play a factor in addiction?"
"Well, this is a hard question to answer. There has been much research done and the answer is still be found to be controversial. There are other causes besides personality and addiction. While these two can be causes they can also be symptoms. All that we know is from genetic testing and the relationship between parents and their offspring which helps with diagnoses and treatment."
