They started by mixing alcohol with soda,some joined their parents in taking alcohol at home.

Root cause was their family members used to sell alcohol and were lured in by peer groups.

As they continued taking, their health condition changed, eating habits was poor.

Some indication that one is taking alcohol is poor feeding habits, staggering, they smell alcohol especially in the morning.

They could not stop because they were addicted.

Learners should avoid places where alcohol is sold, should not join their parents in taking alcohol.

Individual can't work without taking alcohol.

Self esteem of alcoholic person becomes low.

Families start feeling burden duebto theft cases

Relationship with others is minimal.

They started from peer pressure and the need to fit in.

The root cause could be that they were trying to erase another problem,curiosity or just fun.

They progressed from experimentation to the regular user stage,then to risky use and dependence and finally addition.

Indicators that someone may be taking drugs include:

1.Telling lies and/acting secretively.

2.loss of interest in self,appearance,hair,hobbies,sports,friends and school.

3.Unexplained fits of anger and mood swings.

4.Loss of appetite and weight loss.

5.Short of money,stealing items of value.

6.Engaging in petty crime.

7.Truancy and absenteeism from school,college or workplace.

8.Smell of chemicals .

9.Loss of interest in life.

10.Change in sleeping or eating patterns.

Some of the reasons why they didn't stop when they realised they had a problem include:

1.Remaining in the same company of friends.

2.Same environment.

3.Not seeking help from reliable sources.

3.Lack of self will to stop.

4.Lack of important decision making skills.

5.Lack of correct information regarding drugs.

We can help learners not to fall into the same trap by:

1.Counseling.

2.Establishing support systems like peer dialogue clubs.

3.Training on life skills.

4.Resource persons

5.Organizing for them to watch educative video clips on drugs.

The impact of addiction can :

1.Lower the individuals self esteem.

2.Cause separation,divorce or neglect in families.

3.Cause violence,broken relationships or even death.

4.School dropouts and shuttered dreams.

5.Financial constraints ,stealing or selling household items.

Started by peer influence during a friend's birthday party. 

The root cause is a background where everyone was taking alcohol. 

Progression was gradual until they could take large quantities.

Indicators of alcoholism are ___withdrawal, being unkempt, loss of appetite, loss of weight etc.

They could not stop because  the were already addicted. 

We can help learners by guiding and counseling them to avoid alcohol and not to join their parents in drinking in case they drink. 

Impact of addiction ___results Ina low self esteem, families feel the burden of bearing with an alcoholic, their relationships deteriorates since they keep away from people who condemn their behavior of drug abuse, they record poor performance at school and workplaces, finances affected since always misused on drugs and rarely saves.

How he started taking drugs

He started by taking little when he was sent to buy for his father

The root cause

He saw his father taking and often he was sent to go and buy

How he progressed

Peer pressure motivated his desire to take alcohol when he was in high school

He could not stop because he got addicted

We can help learners by encouraging them to be focused and not just to follow what their peers tell them but look at the consequences

Individuals start taking drugs through lacing them on juice.

Root cause is curiosity and peer influence

Progresses to now the need to taste the drug itself without mixing with drinks

Persons taking drugs are noticed by their behaviour change

they dont stop because they are on route to addiction and the urge to take the substance is very strong.

learners  can be helped through sufficient exposure to information on drugs

  1. How did the individuals giving their testimonies start taking drugs or alcohol? they started out of curiosity and some from peer pressure.

  2. What was the root cause? some did it to escape family problems, others did it to please their friends, others just did it to deal with the boredom that was eating them away after being so idle

  3. How was the progression? it starts as a small manageable habit then grows slow to a problem that is no longer controllable by the user of the drug.

  4. What are the indicators that someone may be taking drugs or alcohol? change in moods, isolation from family and friends whom they don't want to know of their secret use of drug, unnecessary aggression and violent behaviour that might not have been there before

  5. What made them not stop when they realize they have a problem? they were already addicted and depended on the drug for functioning of their bodies.

  6.  How can we help our learners not fall into the same trap? let us sensitize them about the dangers of using these drugs. we can also keep them busy so that they don't start thinking about using these drug

  7. What was the impact of the addiction on:

  • The individuals hallucination, poor health

  • Self-esteem goes low

  • Their families heartbreak and depression 

  • Relationships will always break

  • Schooling and career will certainly be interrupted

  • Finances will be wasted

Started at birthday party then gradually he got used to. Some got used to taking alcohol because family members were brewing while others we already alcoholics. 

Indicators; drop out of school, slaggish behavior, imbalance when walking, red eyes, poor academic performance.

Couldn't stop the habit for fear of losing friends, addiction made him dependent on the drug.

This has great impact on academic and work performance. Their health deteriorated and it was obvious that they needed help/ psychosocial support from school and parents.

Provide guidance and counseling to help them realize who they're and how to come out of the problem

Started from home where the mother was a brewer. 

Progressed slowly from small quantities when the the mother was away to large quantities. 

Indicators: red eyes, walking unsteadily, smelling, poor concentration span,  sleepy.

Rrasong for difficulty in refraining: peer influence, addiction.

We need to guide our learners on the risks posed by exposure to drugs.  

Any drinking points within the school reach should be demolished.

He started at 7 years old. He was given by his father to become a man. It was a kind of rite of passage to him. He became dependent on the alcohol in order to function well. What was a once in a while thing became daily habit.

A change in normal behavior may be an indicator of drug abuse eg. suddenly hyper or withdrawn. He tried but couldn't stop. He had already become dependent. I believe early introduction to alcohol contributed to the addiction. As a child the brain is very impressionable. Protect young ones from alcohol as much as we can.

He became disorganized and unreliable leading to job loss. His wife left and he had to move back to the village with his parents. Financially he was reduced to a beggar depending on his family for up keep. Due of the addiction, he destroyed many friendship and family relationships.

Introduced to drugs by a friend during a social event and fell for it due to peer pressure. First the progression was slow and done secretly until it became a habit. Victims of drug abuse are withdrawn with low self esteem and deviate from the norm even in matters of common sense.Their families suffer broken relationships, drop out of School or loose jobs,while their finances are exhausted due to cost incurred on drugs.

We can assist our learners by equipping them with knowledge on the dangers involved and assertive skills to enable them to keep off from drug abuse.

He could not stop because he got addicted

We can help learners by encouraging them to be focused and not just to follow what their peers tell them but look at the consequences

He started using the alcohol in a friend's birthday party at the college.

All his friends were using, so he had to use it to maintain his relationship with his friends.

The friends encouraged him,peer pressure.

He felt good after tasting and his self esteem was raised.

His behaviors drastically changed,he could no longer face his family members before drinking,he showed withdrawal symptoms, became violent,his academic performance deteriorated.

He could not stop drinking even after he realized that drinking is bad, because he was already addicted.

As teachers,we can help the young people not to fall into the temptations of abusing drugs and alcohol by regularly talking to them on the dangers of drugs and substance abuse.

Watching videos on effects of substance abuse, and hearing a live testimony of a person abusing the drugs.

He began when he attended a party and everyone was busy enjoying themselves. 

The root cause was peer pressure 

As time went by he couldn't do without drugs and so he became an addict. 

He would stay indoors and avoid socialising for the fear of suspicions. The only friends were fellow addicts. 

He couldn't stop because the body was addicted so he couldn't do without. 

We should advise them on the need to choose friends wisely and also be advised on being self principled 

Impacts:

Individuals are withdrawn, develops low self esteem. His family split because he couldn't be accommodated by both members of the family. His relationship with other people quickly deteriorated because he was violent. He was ever on and off school and most of his money was diverted to buying drugs

Individuals start taking drugs due to influence from peers,curiosity, when under some sort of stress,to be in a certain class etc.                                                                        If they want to maintain the status quo they will retain the habit ending up getting addicted that causes them not to stop.         Indicators of the same are dirtiness, sleepy,red eyes, poor performance, being absent minded among others.                          We can help learners by providing moral and spiritual guidance to them:Let them know the effect of taking drugs.                    Impacts of addiction include,low self esteem, irresponsible and misuse of family funds and even stealing,poor performance and school dropouts and failure ,poor performance at work place.

In a friend's birthday party where alcohol was offered. She felt it was a nice experience taking it and therefore was hard to stop. Indicators were: lacking attention in class, poor academic performance.

Young people can avoid by keeping company of those who don't abuse drugs and alcohol.

Consequences could be lack of concentration, poor academic performance, being clumsy, misuse of finances, withdrawal, low self image.

The individuals started using the drugs/ alcohol at home used by parents where they started by having a sip/puff.

Reasons for drug and alcohol abuse was to have fun, curiosity, need to fit and peer pressure.
Little has one decided that they have entered the world of drinking or of abusing drugs. Most people at the experimentation phase deceive themselves that they are in control of what they are doing.As they continue drinking or using drugs they later realize that they are hooked up.
Indicators that a person could be using  drugs or alcohol are telling lies and/or acting secretively,loss of interest in self, appearance, hair, hobbies, sports, friends and school,unexplained fits of anger-mood swings,loss of appetite-weight loss,   stealing items of value and money, petty crime,truancy and absentism in school, college or workplace and being indisciplined.
When they realized they have a problem,they could not stop because they were already in the addiction stage.This is a medical condition involving serious psychological and physical changes from repeated heavy use of alcohol, other drugs, or both. An addict will have uncontrollable craving for alcohol or other drugs and tends to seek and use drugs persistently even in the face of negative consequences. A drug or alcohol addict is now under the control of the substances being abused.

We can help our learners not fall into the same trap as these young persons. Prevention is better than cure. Prevention is a combined effort of different people and departments in the school as well as outside the school.These are teachers, school management, non-teaching staff and parents who can establish an effective prevention program.This will help the learners identify and apply relevant Life skills in education such as self-awareness, self-esteem, assertiveness, peer pressure resistance skills and decision making skills.It will also help to nurture appropriate core values such as responsibility, integrity and respect for oneself and others.The program will further provide accurate information about different drugs and their effects.The learners will also be made aware of possible referral places where those with more serious problems can be referred to.
The impact of the addiction on:

The individual. A weakened immune system, increasing the risk of illness and infection,heart conditions ranging from abnormal heart rates to heart attacks and collapsed veins and blood vessel infections from injected drug,nausea and abdominal pain, which can also lead to changes in appetite and weight loss,increased strain on the liver, which puts the person at risk of significant liver damage or liver failure,seizures, stroke, mental confusion and brain damage,lung disease problems with memory, attention and decision-making, which make daily living more difficult.

Self esteem. Negative outlook and defeatist attitude,lack of confidence inability to express your wants and needs,not being able to see things from other people's perspectives,the belief that others are better than you and intense fear of failure.

Their families. Loving homes can be divided by the strain caused by drug and alcohol abuse. Conflict becomes normal as family members fight to engage with a child who abuses drugs/alcohol,trust begins to erode.Marriages can end due to changes caused by addiction. Communication becomes more difficult.

Relationship. Addiction makes it hard to maintain trust, respect and open communication.When a person is addicted to a substance, they revolve their life around obtaining and using the drug. This may lead to neglecting responsibilities or the needs of their significant other. As a result, their partner will feel hurt, angry and betrayed. 
Schooling and career .

Addiction on the job have a far-reaching impact on the profitability of a business. Many job duties involve being alert and accurate, having quick reflexes and being efficient in completing tasks. When a person is impaired, it can lead to accidents, inefficiency and reduced productivity. Absenteeism due to recovering from the effects of substance abuse and related illnesses can also be costly to businesses.

Finances. Supporting an addiction is very expressive because of the purchase of drugs/alcohol ,being trapped in the burden of penalties and other unexpected costs,medical complications which are extremely expensive and getting into serious legal troubles which can place them in a cycle of poor life.
