Drugs,Alcohol,and Smoking Can Hurt your Body

Doing drugs can hurt you and cause you brain damage.But drugs aren't the only things that can hurt you so can alcohol and smoking.Smoking can cause heart disease, lung cancer and not to mention your skin will start breaking out and peeling off.Now for alcohol.Alcohol can make your heart muscles weaker and can also effect your brain so do yourself a favor don’t do drugs ,don´t smoke and finally don´t drink alcohol it’s for your health.

Say No!

So people who do and people who don’t do that stuff have one thing in common they both have to think and what I mean by think is think if they should say yes or no to drugs.But they also have some differences like, they hang out with different groups.People who do drugs probably hangout with people who encourage them to do drugs.But people who don’t do drugs most likely hang out with people who don’t encourage them to do drugs.Another difference is health.People who do drugs may have a lot of health disorders but people who don’t probably don't have health disorders they are probably as healthy as can be.So make a choice and help others make the right decision.
