Is it Worth the Risk?
Drugs don't just hurt. They kill. Don't become a statistic
Why take a chance?
570,000 people die from drug use annually. That breaks down to around 1500 a day. There is nothing good that comes from shooting up or getting high. Choosing to put your life at risk that way is dangerous, and there is a good chance that it will lead to you becoming simply a statistic. You are a unique person, one in a million, so don't become one in 1500.
It is up to you
With so many studies and so much research out there proclaiming the harmful effects of drug use - that far outweigh any positive feelings it may bring, - it seems like an easy choice to decide to stay clean and sober. However, many teens feel like they are different and, even if they use drugs, they will not be harmed. It is up to you to make that choice for yourself. Many others around you can try to influence you to decide one way or the other but, in the end, it is you and only you who can choose whether to give in to temptation or not.
