Here again, it appears as if she is searching for a solution in meth or finding another cause to use meth. People need some form of an emotional release and while this is true, in the case of this person using meth is not a solution. The use of meth is dangerous and is an unethical and criminal act as well. So in the case of the meth user, it could be said that their form of emotional release is not comparable to that of a normal person or at least a non-addict, the emotional release that they seek is more overwhelming.
Secondly, the above paragraph cited from her confessions, shows that as an individual she was more straight-laced as in more conservative. Katz (1998) states that most of the actors in the case of the seductive theory might actually engage in projects that help them in transcending their mundane self. The seductive theory states that the people actually seek some form of experience that helps them forget their normally mundane lives. They have some form of defense to given on why they chose an unusual experience. The person in the case study selected states that she was very conservative and tight laced and that the use of meth helped her to be more social, so she chose the drug for being more social. Once again in keeping with the theory, the person finds causes for doing a criminal act by themselves.
Now there are many theories that attempt to prove a criminal act as happening because of society, strain faced by the individual or other individual level elements, but in the case of Katz theory, the individual is said to construct the cause for why they commit the crime. Can it truly be said that the societal environment in which the meth addicted person lived was not a cause for their addiction? Now this cannot be proved completely as the case study in question is one where only a limited amount of information is presented. However, the use of meth and meth addiction makes people do things that they normally would not do. It has indeed been proved in many more cases. In Australia a man killed his girlfriend by stomping on her, under the influence of meth which he claimed he would not have done if he was not under its influence (Buttler, 2013).
