The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
When it comes to substance abuse, many forms of substances can be considered as having positive and negative effects on the human body. A prime example comes from alcohol, as a wide range of medicines use ethanol as an active ingredient to speed up the body’s healing process or physical resistances. The negative aspect surrounding alcohol comes from social interactions where people feel the need to consume too much alcoholic beverages for various reasons. This leads us to the ugly part of substance abuse, where an addiction is born out of necessity to consume certain substances frequently and in high volumes to sustain that person’s addictive nature.
