Pills Are For Our Health

Pills are here for our health. To help us feel better and control something's that aren't right inside our bodies. But a lot of people abuse the power of (pills) and they become (drugs) to them.

For Example

For example I have a cousin that stood with us for a while. We never saw anything different about her. Until one day she drove into our broken stove that we put outside our house. That's when we started to get suspicions. She became more and more aggressive to everyone. She gained and lost weight. The worst part was, she would drive around with her newborn. Her choice of friends changed, she was careless with everything. She stole from my parents. when that happened my mom had enough and told her she needed to go. The truth is, till today she still uses (pills) but now its gotten worse were she would combine alcohol with it.
