REASONS WHY ARTISTS OFTEN GET ADDICTED
DESIRE FOR ATTENTION
It is normal for every human being to desire attention and interest. Artists are liable to coming in contact with noble and famous men in the course of their performances, and such an experience is what most people look forward to achieving. For artists that are yet to get to the top, all they need do is to be good at what they do, to achieve such aim.
Most artists feel pleasure and ease when performing if they take drugs before going on stage, and as such, most of them get addicted to drugs just to satisfy the requirement of the industry.
QUICK NEED TO BECOME RICH AND FAMOUS
No man desires to be poor, everyone aspires to see themselves in top places and in positions which are meant for the wealthy. Recently, most movies that people often like to watch are about money, sex, war, drugs and the likes.
Such movies do require artists that are very skilled and will also require the vulnerability of artists to taking drugs and drinks, having public sex etc. The rate at which the movie sells determine how much the artists will be paid.
PRESSURE AND LACK OF SELF-CONFIDENCE
The pressure of being in front of a large audience is quite massive. Artists performing on stage could find it difficult to face a large crowd, some are too shy to face the audience, and some are afraid of messing up the whole performance. Artists commonly abuse unlawful substances to overcome such pressure and enhance confidence. The drugs help them to evade the reality that makes them incapacitated, and creates an artificial morale in them that helps to exhibit their talent.
When there is a persistent reason for them to keep taking those substances and partake in those acts, they end up getting addicted to them.
