If you have thought about using drugs such as Xanax, cocaine, meth, heroin, or anything of these sorts I am about to tell you why you should not.
When it comes to drug use especially extreme drugs, they have a long-lasting effect on the human brain. Drug use can cause holes in the brain that can cause irreparable damage to the memory and cause out of character responses/actions. As of 2019 studies show that around 35 million people (about twice the population of New York) in the world suffer with addiction and about 1 in 7 seek treatment for it. When seeing someone who clearly uses drugs, we tend to call them a ‘crackhead’ to reference their erratic strange behavior because their consistent drug use has fried their brain and made them crazy. About 4% of America would qualify as an addict while 10% has at least struggled with drug addiction/misuse at some point in their life.
You should also stay away from drugs because when using them your brain starts telling you everything is okay even when it is not actually okay. Such as being in financial instability but still not caring because all they want is to ‘get their fix.’ Drug use makes common sense go out of the window, all responsibilities go out the window and their only focus becomes their drug of choice. So, trust me when I say that no matter how fun it seems, say no to drugs, do not allow temptation and peer pressure cause you to falter drugs are not worth it.
