Female Self-Image and Cocaine

Female Self-Image and Cocaine

There are many reasons women become perfectionist in today’s society. The fashion industry has placed impracticable expectations on women and this has been a huge issue for the female body image crisis. In magazines models are photoshopped and praised as they walk down the runway clearly lacking body fat. Movie and tv show producers give roles to actresses who must attain eating disorders in order to comply with the weight limitations. The average women cannot realistically keep up with these weight standards. Although there has been much improvement over the years, there is still sexism that exists all over the world today. Woman with addictive qualities and who suffer from eating disorders will find cocaine to be a quick fix in suppressing the appetite. Rapid weight loss is typical and especially desired with an already skewed body image. In these cases, which are extremely common, self-love should be heavily promoted in treatment.

Often times, there is a stigma that comes with cocaine. The general conception is that only wild, party girls use drugs like cocaine. This isn’t a complete fabrication, but it’s not entirely true either. Women all around the world wear many different hats in life. Working mothers can find themselves over stressing about work, bills, and other factors. These have all lead to scores of helpless, burnt out women. A portion of these women will find that cocaine gives an extra energy boost that coffee just can’t compare. However, once the woman becomes addicted, it becomes harder to practice productivity when the overwhelming unattractive side effects kick in. Impulsivity, anxiety, paranoia, panic attacks, and restlessness are all side effects that will at some point outweigh the positives. Unfortunately, at this point, women will be unable to see any way out. Once accepting help, treatment can help with learning how to balance life’s stressors in a healthy manner.

Cocaine has the ability to come off as fun, stimulating, and sometimes even glamorous. Movies glorify the substance and that tends to make it even more acceptable to the public. A long time ago, it became acceptable for men to treat women as objects. This is a generalization, but true to some extent still. Somewhere along the line, young girls are given this preconceived notion that being authentic, will never be good enough. Body dysmorphia and eating disorders are rampant and as a result, women are drawn to stimulants like cocaine. Only when women addicts begin to practice self-love and heal, there will be no need to seek out the alternative. Neglecting pain by abusing substances will no longer be the norm. However, it’s important to remember that just because it’s apart of the addict’s history, it doesn’t make them any less than, but stronger for overcoming it.
