A Single Story
A single story is a group that is based on stereotypes where people think the worst of
your culture or group. The group I am focusing on for this assignment are past drug users and
how people assume once you have a made a mistake, they think you cannot overcome it for the
better change in your life. However, that is completely false. In fact there are many people
working on their lives and their addictions and making an effort to change it for the better.
Past drug users are stereotyped as people that will never succeed in life and basically are
told that once you get stuck your their for life when that isn’t true. In the article, “ The
Surprising Truth About Addiction” written by Stanton Peele Ph.D, she talks about the actual
facts and details when it comes to addiction and how surprisingly these people will find an end to
their addiction rather than maintaining it and continue with their addiction. She says, “But this
fatalistic thinking about addiction doesn’t jibe with the facts. More people overcome addictions
than do not. And the vast majority do so without therapy. Quitting may take several tries, and
people may not stop smoking, drinking or using drugs altogether. But eventually they succeed in
shaking dependence”. Here, she talks about the surprising truth about people with addictions, and
how most of them realize they have a problem and care about taking care of their addictions
rather than letting it take over their lives. After reading this article, I have a deeper understanding
about this topic and learned more about how these addicts deal with their problems and how
much they care about overcoming them and bettering themselves for the sake of their lives.
Some people say when you use drugs once your drug addiction starts you cannot stop
because usually when people start using drugs it’s for positive reason to make themselves feel
better but what they don’t know it can put your more into your depression. In a article they say “
At first, taking drugs is usually your choice. But as you continue to take them, using self-control
can become harder and harder; this is the biggest sign of addiction.”( Par 5) They talk about how
it starts your choice but later as the drugs start to trick your mind and then you end up not giving
up your addiction because you depend on it. A Lot of people think that drug users are more
likely to not give it up but in fact it’s the complete opposite. Alot of past drug users that get clean
usually realize that they have a problem and how they need to get clean to be positive society in
order to succeed in life. People always assume the worst as if their not human and losers but they
are people who went through a tough time and conquer there addiction. A lot of people have a
trigger when it comes to addictions in the article they mention what it is trigger, “ can be a place,
person, thing, smell, feeling, picture, or memory that reminds you of taking a drug and getting
high. A trigger can be something stressful that you want to escape from. It can even be
something that makes you feel happy. People fighting addiction need to stay away from the
people and triggers that can make them start using drugs again, just like people with breathing
problems need to avoid smoke and dust.” ( Par 7) Basically It can be anything that reminds you
of your struggles in life. A story that I saw was this girl named savannah and how she was
basically born into her addiction he talks about getting into drugs when she is only 10 because
both of her parents were active addicts and they were the ones that basically started to give her
the pills. Basically she thought she had no hope or any chance of truly being happy in life and
being more. She later says how she stopped, “ There wasn’t a specific event that saved my life;
it was my own spirituality and surrender that did it. I know without a doubt in my heart that if I’d
continued using I’d be dead. “ she then realized that if she wanted to make a change she would
have to overcome the pain and the drugs and be better which is what she did. She is 18 and sober
now and starting her life for herself. The reason why i decide to put this in my essay because it
shows my audience that even someone that was born into her addiction she finds the strength to
overcome it.
Stereotypes keep people stuck because once you’re labeled them, it’s hard to “un-label
them.” We shouldn’t stereotype people because we have no idea what others go through. Their
problems compared to ours are nothing. In my essay, I proved that this stereotype is wrong. For
some, the stereotype may be true, but for most, they find ways to overcome their addiction. Just
because they were born into this lifestyle, it doesn’t determine their future. They have control of
it, and can decide where they want their life to take them. All the resources are readily available
to them, it’s up to them to take advantage of it. And as proven in my essay, most drug addicts
break the mold and get the help they need.
