Drug Abuse

Illegal Drugs

I choose to live a drug free life because it causes addiction which makes you rely on the drug. I do not want to depend on something to make me feel good that could put my health in danger and take over my life. Once I start doing illegal drugs, I will have to keep doing them to satisfy my addiction, and I want to live a life free of drugs ruling my life. Depending on the drug, it could make me age faster, put me in poor health, and result in death most likely if I wouldn't of been able to stop. I choose to not rely on a high to make me feel certain happy emotions. Instead, I will find the happiness through my friends and loved ones. I choose to live a drug free life because I have ancestors who have passed away from substance abuse, and I do not want to fall into their footsteps and devastate the ones who love me the most. I choose to live the most healthy life I possibly can and carry out Gods plans he has placed before me, which I firmly believe involves me choosing to fill my body with only healthy substances.
