How Past Experiences Impact Life

Past experience and events can haunt people for years to come, especially in the following ways:

  • Repairing relationships
  • Obstacles
  • Self-image

Past experiences could have damaged important relationships, and improving them can be extremely difficult. Secondly, because of your past experiences with addiction, you may have to fight through obstacles such as legal consequences or even jail time. Jail time may also affect the jobs an addict can acquire, thereby having consequences that last even longer than expected. Lastly, self-image is extremely important to someone’s health, so a poor self-image can follow an individual for years afterwards. Self-image may not only be how the addict sees herself, but also how others perceive her. Once an individual labels herself an addict, overcoming that obstacle may take years.

How Amphetamine Addiction and Negative Life Events Affect Your Future

Addiction can impact both the present and the future, especially in the following ways:

  • Unstable relationships
  • Financial insecurity
  • Low self-esteem

Consistently experiencing negative effects of an addiction can have a traumatic effect on relationships. For instance, abusing Amphetamines repeatedly, especially in spite the consequences, can cause others to avoid you and from being involved in your life. Also, addiction causes financial turmoil, so the longer addiction occurs, the worse someone’s financial standings may become. Finally, the mix of unstable relationships and financial insecurity can cause low self-esteem and confidence. Low self-esteem can cause an addict to continue to abuse amphetamines and encourage deeper drug use to cope with these feelings.
