My Natural High

By
Sports are what I run to when I’m sad, angry, or upset. I love playing sports; they are what some people would call “My natural high.” My natural high is basketball and it’s a great way to keep me from thinking about trying drugs.


Out of all sports basketball is my favorite. Basketball is one of my favorite sports because I can put all of my anger towards playing well. I love being competitive, and basketball gives me a great chance to do that. If I always have my focus on basketball I won’t be thinking of trying other bad stuff like drugs and alcohol


My natural high also known as basketball helps and encourages me to stay away from recreational drugs. You can’t play sports well if you are on drugs, or hanging out with the wrong crowd. Sports take a lot of energy and you just don’t have any if you’re on drugs. With my favorite sports being basketball, it is way more important to me than using drugs. Basketball is my natural high. What is yours?
