Teens using Drugs - Page Text Content

S: Teens almost always choose to use drugs by themselves

1: Livin life to the fullest

4: Facts on drugs: Teens who use drugs before the age of 17 were shown to have smaller brains and be physically smaller in height and weight than the average person their age. Kids of different ages use drugs but it’s mostly the 15 to 18 year olds that use them. Most reasons that people use drugs are problems in the family and stress but it could also be due to Social acceptance, Low self-esteem, curiosity, self medication, boredom, parental influence, ease of access, attention and addiction. Drugs are not things to be taken lightly and most teens often take them for granted and get themselves injured. Drugs cause problems in every teen that uses them, they yell more get angry easily and can easily be classified as dangerous.

6: What are drugs? How do drugs work? Drugs are chemicals or substances that change the way our bodies work. According to doctors across the globe when you put them into your body (often by swallowing, inhaling, or injecting them), drugs find their way into your bloodstream and are transported to parts of your body, such as your brain. In the brain, drugs may either intensify or dull your senses, alter your sense of alertness, and sometimes decrease physical pain. Once you use drugs it is very hard to quit some people even try distracting themselves all day to not do drugs.

8: Drugs have mental effects on people as well as physical. Mental effects are much worse over time, people often question themselves and their actions more often than before and are paranoid and most of the time, they change decisions a lot and often lose their train of thought when off the drug or not high they wish they were to escape stress or to just get away. Teenagers on drugs often think about suicides when on drugs and some succeed but others just keep using drugs, oblivious.

10: To Do List: Get up (usually around 12:45 PM) Go buy new video games Play new video games Shower Nap Lunch Bike riding Another shower T.V. time Dinner Power nap Text friends

12: Inner Monologue: It’s getting worse, the need for drugs, I can feel it, I have been trying to distract myself a lot but I cant go on like this forever, its like there’s this constant pounding In my head, I need another high or I don’t know how long I’ll last I need to escape the constant arguing and family problems; I don’t know what to do. What about Cole, My best friend? What about my little sister, Ariel? Maybe I should just give up? Fall into drugs and what’s the worst that could happen? I don’t know maybe I should keep resisting I’m so confused what should I do?!?! Maybe I should go get some help.

16: DRAINED When did all this pain come? Why did I throw it all away? My once happy life now gone long The smiles and laughs escaped into the last song I’m becoming something small and cowardly I’m losing myself I’m losing feeling I’m losing my family I’m losing everything with a knife I’m becoming drained from the life.

18: After people go to drug clinics they receive the treatment they need to get better and come back happier, healthier, and better all around. Some people have to go back to clinics if they don’t get fully healed but its mostly just a one time thing and they try to stay off of drugs for the rest of their life.
