Drugs as we know can be extremely harmful to our bodies. many youth begin using drugs as an act of being under peer pressure. It is not always easy to say no to “the crowd”. Drugs can and will become addictive, sometimes on the first try. Drug abuse can change you life in many ways. Many homes are broken up because of drug and alcohol abuse throughout the family. I’ve seen this as a reality in my family. My mother herself was an alcoholic. She became too dependent of alchol that she didn’t maintain her responsibilities as a mother. She became extremely careless when it came to the caretaking of her children. As a result, six of her seven children ended up as foster children. Many of them have either learning or mental disabilities, or both. Now that we are older our family does not know how to operate as a family. It has gone worse from there.

I wont travel too far into details. I shared this as an example of how drug/alcohol abuse can have an effect on an entire family. What my mom started off as peer pressure at a young age, grew to be a huge mistake that destroyed our family. Drug and alcohol abuse can also lead to many other things. I have observed that many of the crimes, rapes, murders, car accidents, and deadly accidents overall, are all results of drug and alcohol abuse. Things happen while intoxicated, that can change your life in a split second, all due to being under the influence. I’ve seen so many lives destroyed because of addictions to drugs and alcohol. When we try these things as young adults, we don’t always think ahead and realize the huge downfall that these behaviors may bring. Life is so much more assured when we choose to live above and beyond these negative behaviors. If you know anyone who has a drug and alcohol addiction, it is vital that you get them some help before it is too late for them. Remember that the success of the future world starts with us. Don’t allow that to be japordized my alcohol and drug abuse. :SAY NO TO DRUGS”!!!
