  4. 4. have been trying to get inside the brains of the addicts to understand what theyfeel, what keeps driving them towards certain substances and what keeps themfrom being able to quit. As some of these questions are getting answered, thereare several aspects of addiction that still escape them.There are several external and internal factors that affect the psychology of anaddict. External factors are the factors associated with the environment both inhomes and outside especially during the subjects’ formative years. For severalstreet children in the developing world, substance abuse is an escape from thepangs of hunger. Lack of means to support one’s self, being exposed to anenvironment of users, ease of access to these substances are some externalfactors that encourage addiction. At home, parents must be able to balancediscipline and freedom. An excess of either extreme can have a negative impacton the child’s psychology. Personal experiences such as witnessing violence ordeath may also have an adverse effect.Internal factors have to do with the personality of the subject. For example,researchers seem to think that people who are hyperactive as children woulddevelop a negative personality unless guided well. They attribute to thecharacteristic of being impulsive in nature. A very important internal factor is whatthe subject feels about himself or herself. If this image is negative, the subjectmay either become outright rebellious or, on the other extreme, become reclusiveand withdrawn from society. Ignorance on the subjects’ part about the ill effects ofdrug abuse also contributes to aiding addiction. This makes it important to ensurethat information on addiction is easily accessible to people of all ages.There are several factors that keep an addict from seeking help and trying to quit.The drug affects the reward mechanism of the brain. The addicts always feel thatthey are different from other people and that the rules that apply to everyonedon’t necessarily apply to them. They always have an excuse for doing what theydo and exploit any reason that presents itself to the mind. Some addicts realizetheir wrong doing. But the embarrassment of admitting it and seeking help keepsthem from doing it.
