How Substance Abuse Ravages America and What to Do About It

High Society

Joseph Califano, Jr. describes his new book, High Society: How Substance Abuse Ravages America and What to Do About It, as a "call to arms". Califano, Chairman and President of the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University, presents in devastating detail the many ways in which substance abuse infects all aspects of American society.

Many of the statistics he weaves into his argument are familiar. In their entirety, however, they paint the portrait of a nation drenched in alcohol and substance abuse.

Smoking - Not a Solution   
Tony Robinson

Stress is directly proportional to smoking.

All the smokers out there will agree with this fact. It is a common slogan of all the smokers that because they smoke of stress. But, this is a misconception. People often get stressed, due to their smoking habit. Even after quitting smoking, smokers often start smoking. The main causes for taking up smoking again are social gatherings, parties, stress and alcohol.

For Instance, you are having a lot of work pressure in the office. If you use to smoke earlier, then you would immediately think of having cigarette.

Is it reasonable of having cigarette in such a situation?

Instead of organizing the schedule of your work, you are thinking about having cigarette. Can you give any cause for having cigarette in this situation? Neither cigarette can help you in easing the work pressure, nor can do the work. Thus, there is no cause for smoking in such stressful situation. You are only making a fool of yourself. You are again allowing the entry of numerous deadly chemicals. These chemicals will result in harmful deadly diseases. Moreover, your near and dear ones are also being affected.

Thus, the job stress is nothing in front of these deadly diseases. The smoking will make you more anxious. It enhances the frustration. You will take another cigarette, when the first one ends. In this way, you will start smoking again. You have quitted smoking, after several failed and sincere attempts. But, due to certain stress you are again taking it up. Even, if you are going through some major crisis period, remember that smoking will not get the solution for you. Several times, we are unable to handle our situations. Such as, death of a near one or getting bankrupt, or major illness and ended up in taking cigarette. But, always remember that smoking is not going to solve your problem.
