Some consequences of using drugs such as drugs and other addictive substances and drinking liquor, including:

When excess dose can result in death. Types of drug depressants include opiates and various derivatives such as morphine and heroin. A popular example now is Putaw.

Another problem that concerns us today is the rising numbers of teenagers who become active smokers. The increase in these numbers can be influenced by the wishes of his own personal but can also be influenced by factors-external factors, including the following:

Parental Influence

One of the findings of juvenile smokers is that young children who come from unhappy households, where parents do not pay close attention to their children and give hard physical punishment are easier to be smokers than young children who come from a happy home environment (Baer & Corado in Atkinson, Introduction to Psychology, 1999:294).

Influence Of Friends

Various facts reveal that the more adolescents smoke then the more likely his friends are smokers as well and so vice versa. From that fact two possibilities happened, the first teenagers were affected by his friends or even the teenage friends were influenced by the teenage self that they eventually all became smokers. Among the youth of smokers, there are 87% have at least one or more friends who are smokers as well as non-smoker youth (Al Bachri, 1991).

Personality Factors

People try to smoke for reasons of wanting to know or want to break away from physical or mental pain, freeing themselves from boredom. Yet a predictive personality trait on drug users (including cigarettes) is social conformity. People who have high scores on various social conformities tests more easily become users compared to those who have a low score (Atkinson, 1999).

The Influence Of Advertising

Seeing advertisements on mass media and electronics showing the idea that smokers are the epitome of virility or glamour, making teenagers often triggered to follow the behavior as in the advertisement.
