Please Say No To Drugs!

September 26, 2009
I beg every teenager that comes to this website, to say "no" to drugs. You have more influence on your friends and peers than you could imagine. It all starts with the thought that either it's cool to do drugs or you can just do it once without it affecting you. Drugs have a terribly strong hold on those who fall to them. There are so many teens who o.d. every year. They didn't think that doing a small ammount of drugs would ruin their lives, but you can see what happens to them all. That fate could be our friends'. We could save their lives if we would just take a stand! Be a different teen! Make a difference in your friends lives!

Not all drugs are bad.. it really depends on what drugs you are refering to. Marijuana is less harmful then alcohol and smoking. i dont personally partake because it is not healthy by any standard. But i dont think it can ruin your life. Meth and cocain on the other hand can, in my opinion

Not one death was recorded ever for marijuana use. EVER. People say it's a drug but really, it's safer than drinking alcohol by a long shot and smoking cigarettes.

People tend to say "Oh, you can get addicted." WRONG!

Anyone who stops using marijuana will not feel the withdrawls or symptoms someone would have when they quit smoking or drinking.

Specify which drugs your talking about. Then, maybe try a different approach.

It's funny because spiritualrevelationrevealspainandrevolution doesn't even know you're supposed to capitalize the first letter of a sentence. Be less stupid please.

Haha drugs are only bad if you're doing the wrong ones, with the wrong people, at the wrong time, for the wrong reasons. There are plenty of times it's perfectly fine, even better than, say legal drugs like Oxycontin, or even alcohol.


When you say don't do drugs, you should specify which ones, and why, and back it with scientific knowledge. Because there are reasons to not take drugs, and reasons to take them.... It's all very personal.

1. you're isnt spelled ur

2. this is not a poem, by anyones standards

3. youre insulting someone for taking a different but not too extreme take on the issue

if somebody didnt know better i would say you're doing more drugs than the person you insulted

They didn't take any of the stances you spoke of in your criticism. This is the opinion forum, and everyone has an opinion. Singlenote was offering constructive criticism, whereas you not-very-subtly insulted them. Let everyone have their own opinion.

I have this weird ambivalence towards this subject. In a way, I don't even care anymore.

Isn't that sad?

I suppose it has to do with the people I hang out with, the authors I read, the things I've witnessed, the heart I've put into someone's recovery and subsequent relapse. 

I feel terrible about my lack of interest, which is probably why I took the time to comment, but...

I totally agree -- I plan to be clean for life -- but a lot of the drugs people take aren't illegal ones. Ever heard of Ritalin? Adderall? Those can both get you high, but they're frequently prescribed to little kids. Every time you take antibiotics or painkillers you're taking a drug. Hate to break it to you, but even Tylenol is a drug -- it's just a very safe one.
