Sample text

Adolescents need to have time and room to live out their youth appropriately. Rules that are too rigid and are not accepted as rules by adolescents, promote the consumption behaviour. The world of grown-ups doesn’t observe rules or rituals anymore, but nevertheless tries to prescribe these rituals to adolescents. This double standard promotes substance abuse. Changes in family structures (e. g. ) lead to developmental dysfunctions, which in turn promote abuse (Jessor SL and Jessor R 1978; Lazarus RS and Launier R 1978).

When intoxicated, an adult regresses, and inhibitions and defensive behaviour are removed and therefore repressed sources of pleasure are accessible again. The addictive drug enables the individual to step back from the principle of reality to the child’s principle of pleasure and therefore to escape reality (Freud S. 1905; Innerhofer P. ; Vogler E. and Revenstorf D. 1978). For Freud, masturbation is the prototype of addiction and Rado even speaks of a “pharmaceutical orgasm” (Rado S. 1926, 1975).

Consumption is understood as a learned behaviour which is affected by the respective life situation and individual variables. In 1943, Hull CL already formulated his tension reduction theory, based on Pavlov’s classic conditioning model, which indicated that individuals learn specific reactions to stimuli that lead to a reduction of states of tension in the body (Hull CL. et al. 1943). According to this theory, alcohol and tobacco addiction are behaviours that are learned through reinforcement and which lead to a reduction of tension (often anxiety).
