Why do people use psychoactive drugs?

People use drugs for many different reasons.

These may be for fun or excitement; to feel good, better or different; to counteract negative feelings; because they are bored or curious; because their friends or family do it; or because they have a dependence on the drug. Often people who use drugs associate with other people who use drugs. It is not always clear which comes first— the friends or the drugs.
