Celebrity, Drugs, and Alcohol
There are many explanations as to why so many famous celebrities turn to drug or alcohol use. Mainly it stems from the environment they must now live in thanks to their status as famous celebrities. Celebrities could be pushed to doing alcohol and drugs because of the stress of their day-to-day lives. They could also be pushed to such things because of peer pressure.
Celebrities go through a lot of pressure in their daily lives, being public property, stress from work, being dogged by paparazzi. They can sometimes find solace through drugs and alcohol to forget the troubles they have to go through each day. Isn't that how other parts of society try to forget the troubles of their lives, through drugs and alcohol? Celebrities are no different. Sometimes we forget, but celebrities are just like us. They're people too.
Of course, it's not just because they have to go through a lot on a day-to-day basis that makes them turn to alcohol and drugs. There is also peer pressure. Peer pressure is everywhere, even in the neighborhood and workplace of celebrities. If a group of celebrities turn to drugs and alcohol, chances are, they will try to rope in other celebrities into drugs and alcohol too.
Drugs and alcohol just come with the environment. Celebrities are bound to get roped in, especially if they spend a lot of time with other celebrities that are using drugs and alcohol. And the stress of the day won't help either, as drugs and alcohol are ways some people relax and get the stress from their system.
