D.A.R.E.

Make good choices!

Decision Making

You always have a choice. Whether it’s using drugs or not using them. So if you knew how bad they really are, you’ll perhaps quit using them if you don’t already. If you to take lessons from this professional D.A.R.E. teacher named Officer Wagner, you’ll mostly live longer from learning more about drugs. I learned that drugs can hurt your body and quickly. Finally, when you don’t have bad friends that use drugs and pick on you, you’ll get very little peer pressure which means getting less stress from your peers or friends. This is what it feels like to make good choices.

non-Drug Users and Drug Users

When you look at someone who’s smoking and you don’t smoke do you think “Hey… why are you smoking? It’s bad for your health.” I know I think that. a drug user will often use beer, wine, and cigarettes. If you see someone driving side to side on the road, they’re probably drunk. This is because of drugs. It has ingredients that makes you drowsy and makes you think strangely. Non-drug users like me won’t get drunk. Also, people that don’t do drugs will sometimes encourage drug users to STOP using drugs. I know I will always refuse drug offers and encourage people to stop too. Finally, what both a drug user and non-drug user will have different interests in certain things like drugs which will separate the wealthy from the non -wealthy. Try to not be a drug user. Using drugs is highly different then not using drugs in many ways.

Effects From Drugs

Some people think drugs can’t hurt you but really, it can! These are 8 of many effects that may occur when using drugs: loss of balance which means when you’re standing still, you may tip further one side then the other. Or, it’ll slow your body down so you’ll have slow reflexes. You may get drunk and do bad things like touch or break things you’re not supposed to. Maybe it would give you cancer which in some cases, lead to death. A high percentage of people are killed because of drugs and cancer. Finally, some symptoms from drugs are Morphine, Oxycodone, Heroin, Hydrocodone, and Vicodin. Don’t do drugs, and you won’t get most of these effects from them.
