Why are drugs dangerous?
Saying "NO" to drugs is smart and helps to keep yourself and others safe.
10There are all types of drugs and alcohol, but the main thing they have in common is
that those who use them often get hooked on them and then it is very hard to stop,
even when you really want to. That is what we call addiction, you may have heard of
someone being addicted to something. You may have also heard of other familiar terms
such as substance abuse, drug or alcohol abuse and drug addiction.
15People often begin to use drugs or drink a lot of alcohol to avoid the things that bother
them most. Some examples of the things people may want to avoid are: pressure from
friends, stress in the family, the feeling that adults are on their case, or the lousy
feeling of being different from everyone else in the world. People start to use drugs and
alcohol to make themselves feel better. The problem with that is, drinking or using
20drugs only ends up making things worse. Alcohol and other drugs may make a person
feel good for a short time when high, but when the high wears off, the person feels
lousy and may even feel depressed. Once a person is addicted, all they begin to care
about is getting high, and once the high wears off, they need to take more just to feel
normal again. That is the problem with addiction, it means it becomes very hard to stop
25drinking or doing drugs. An addicted person may lie, steal or commit other crimes to
get more. Some kids who do drugs end up dropping out of school and many older kids
and adults may stop going to work. They may stop caring about everything except
drugs after a while. Even the family and friends that they used to care about won't be
important.
30As you can see addictions can change the people who use them in all kinds of ways.
Eventually, even the person's body doesn't work the same (especially the brain, lungs &
liver) and they could end up with physical problems. Drugs change how people act and
they change the way people feel. Someone on drugs can have all sorts of mood swings
from happy to angry, upset, sad, scared, excited, tired or paranoid. Many accidents are
35caused by those who decide to drink or do drugs and drive cars, boats, ships, planes or

trains. Many crimes are committed by those who are on drugs and are not thinking
clearly.
That is why there are laws that either limit or ban the use of certain drugs. Laws about
drugs are to try to keep everyone safe.
5Now do you see why it is smart to say "NO" to drugs and alcohol? Please encourage
others you know to do the same!
