Abstract: Up to this day since years ago, various theorists have formulated their ideas and insights and stressed them in books to reveal their verdict on what ultimately causes the human animal to act in the way he does in different contexts and different circumstances. In this qualitative research these are narrowed down to the drug using behaviour of an individual, his actions in relation to his use of drugs and what the forces which create the tension for such behaviour to take place are. The study will consequently look into a number of theories by diverse scholars and hence confront them with the gathered data in this research and thereby compare and contrast the particular field. The main methods employed in this research were face-to-face interviews. The 7 individuals chosen for this study meet three basic criteria. All individuals are males between the ages of 19 and 22 and could be basically defined as habitual users of illicit drugs.
