Playing Sports and LSD Abuse

Playing Sports and LSD Abuse

Athletes are often at greater risk for substance abuse than other individuals

While every individual is unique, certain activities often drive people to abuse drugs. In some cases, one of the triggers that can drive people to abuse LSD is playing sports. While participation in sports can be a healthy outlet, sports are often stressful. If you do not cope with the stress in healthy ways, drugs may be used as a way to unwind. There are often parties—which include alcohol and drugs—after sporting events. As a result, athletes are often at greater risk for substance abuse than other individuals. If this describes your situation, do not hesitate to seek help. It is urgent to get clean and treat any health problems as early as possible.

How Do Sports Lead to LSD Abuse?

When you think of sports, LSD abuse may not cross your mind. However, there can still be a connection between the two activities. While LSD is not a performance enhancing drug, athletes may still abuse it to deal with the effects of competition. After a game, most athletes are both mentally and physically exhausted. In some cases, athletes maybe discouraged or depressed after a tough loss. If athletes do not find healthy ways to deal with this stress, drug abuse may occur. Unfortunately, drug abuse is a terrible way to cope with stress. When you abuse LSD, as soon as you come down from your trip, your problems will still be there. In many cases the situation will be worse if you continue to abuse drugs. Tolerance to the drug will build and the problem continues to escalate.

Healthy Alternatives to LSD

If you are tempted to abuse LSD, you should know there are many alternatives to drug abuse. You can exercise or read a book. You might even want to try an audiobook and you can learn something new while you work out. Speak with a therapist or a counselor instead of allowing stress to build. Go on a hike. Listen to some music.Go to a movie. One of the best things you can do is volunteer your time to help someone else. When you do this, it gives you a sense of purpose and accomplishment.[1]  You are even able to build on your existing skills and develop new skills in a volunteer situation.[2] When you help others, you will feel better emotionally and that often has a domino effect in your life.  There are countless ways for you to cope with stress without LSD.If you struggle with substance abuse, continue to try new things until you find a healthy activity you enjoy.
