In brief: Not necessarily

"usually" is, in my opinion, a difficult word to use in medicine.
We don't treat diseases, we treat people. And, people are unique and always (not usually) different.

Some times they do it just to please their companian , but than they end with addiction , mood symptoms and psychosis.
So don't ever do that.
