- Her inability to believe in love and marriage
- Relies on drugs to escape reality - "Soma"
" Drying her eyes, Lenina walked across the roof to the lift. On her way down to the twenty-seventh floor she pulled out her soma bottle. One gramme, she decided would not be enough; hers had been more than one-gramme affliction. But if she took two grammes, she ran the risk of not waking up in tim tomorrow morning. She compromised and into her cupped left palm, shook out three half-gramme tablets." (Huxley 171)
