In general, reasons for an individual’s substance use include some complex factors that have been unique to the individual, ranging from psychological factors such as curiosity, risk-taking and coping, to peer influence and environmental influence. A study has suggested that parents had a huge influence on young people’s attitude towards substance use (Lander et al., 2013).
