This article is a very good source for needing more information on bad habbits. It tells that "just say no" is what they call "magical thinking".

Kelsey Sunde's curator insight, December 11, 2013 10:06 AM

This article basically is saying that people can get addicted to painkillers... And once those people build a tolerance, they need a heavier dosage.. and once that new dosage no longer works they move to heavier durgs, such as cocain, or heroin.
