Why is everyone falling for booze/drugs/cigarettes, even when they know the harms?

Few people try to showcase themselves as studs, that they are having alcohol etc. Why are all the smart people following these stupids, thereby making a huge number of drug addicts.
Personally, I get more fun when I am sober. Why do others wish to be wasted?

  • They start because they might want to look “cool” at first. Or they see other cool people doing it.
    It's short term gratification. Most people don't see these effects as long term, but instead view them as something that they only have to worry about tomorrow. When tomorrow comes, they have regrets, but today, there are no regrets and no behavior modifications.

    • That's what I want to say. Generally a person go into drugs because his friends are taking drugs, and he think that his friends are cool. While in reality, those guys/girls have their life fucked up. Why the person can't see that?

Most Helpful Guy

  • Depression, wanting to fit in with people who do that stuff, addiction, not caring.
