    Many people desire social acceptance and will go to great lengths to get it. Should they sense exclusion then to cope with the reality that not too many people care much for them, they'll start abusing drugs.

    There was a time I cared much for social acceptance but I no longer do because I realized I don't need validation of my worth from society. Rejection doesn't necessarily mean I'm worthless and shouldn't therefore "drown my sorrows" with alcohol or something else.
