Confused or befuddled as to why anyone would ever take drugs? Ever hear someone say there are a million reasons why people use drugs? Or perhaps you think there is only one reason why people take drugs: they are loser druggies just looking to get high? Did you know Jesus was accused of that? Whatever the harshest words were at the time, I’m sure those were the ones used against him.
In this essay you will learn of the few key reasons — the isolated variables — as to why people have tried — and why people use — drugs.
The few key reasons why people have tried — and why people use — drugs, all can have a range of inclusion from zero to significant. The variable Time works with this model and is not rejected but respected.
Are you concerned about people who use drugs? Are you concerned about people who are addicted to drugs?
Those and dozens more questions arise when the topic of drugs comes up.
As with the study of any subject, it is beneficial to create a list of questions, then organize the list to determine which questions rely on answers from other questions.
Fairly quickly it was apparent the very first question should be, “how did humanity come to use drugs?” History and chronology are very important.
However, this is not a history lesson. And one easy answer is our ancestors foraged, but those and other answers can also be answers to questions that don’t require us to be experts in history, or do a lot of research. The question of how humanity came to use drugs leads to two very related questions. Questions that seem to be a good foundation for a model with which to begin to answer far more complicated questions, and questions specific to individuals.
This essay is an attempt to document an easy-to-understand model showing the fundamental reasons for:
Those two questions form the fundamental model which isolates the variables, even allowing us to focus on the “before taking a drug” side of time, which is ALWAYS the best place* to meet someone.
* And by “place” I mean to imply set and setting. :-)
In answering those questions a model was created.
