Reflection Essay on Substance Abuse

This could cause things to be more dangerous for other people. I know that there are many reasons why are youth are want to try these things. They do it because they might be bored. Others think it makes them seem older. Some are just silly enough to think that their reputation is at stake. They are all silly reasons in my opinion, but I suppose people believe what they want. Eve in Lee County. I haven’t really had any experiences with people who abuse themselves. However, I have to admit that I’ve seen and know people who do. I see it in my neighborhood all the time. Even when went to high school knew people who did drugs. I try to tell them that its bad, but they act like they just don’t care. Young people think its k to do drugs and alcohol because there isn’t much for them to do anymore. Like I said before they are bored and abusing substances is something new for them to do. You see them being more violent and they cause a lot more disruption.

Young adults, as I mentioned before think they want to seem older. They don’t want to be made fun of or be called a little kid by not trying anything. So you see them start drugs because they think it’s cool. Youths also try to abuse alcohol. People see adults drink all the time, and they sometimes act dumb. When our young people see this they think its k because they adults they might look up to do it. I don’t think adults realize how much they influence the young people today. I honestly cannot believe how easy it is for our youth to get aloud of drugs and alcohol. An come on; you can honestly see adults just giving these things to them. If young people can easily get aloud Of something, obviously they are going to try it. If we made these things harder for them to get aloud of, they wouldn’t want to try it. Maybe some wouldn’t want to risk getting into trouble if they are caught. Then you might have some that don’t want anything to do with it at all. People today are so worried about having whatever reputation they think they have ruined. They never want to be left out of anything that people say is cool.

When they are with people who are busing substances, they automatically think they should try. They don’t want to seem like a goody-goody in front of their so called friends. They get it in their heads to abuse themselves to be a part of something. They will even do it even if some small part of them says don’t do it. Our youth shouldn’t worry about what people think of them. They are better off being around people who accept them. They shouldn’t do bad things just because they are told it’s cool. Everyone should get up and teach them this. If someone teaches them they might see how these things could ruin their lives.

We want them to be safe. Most of us that care don’t want to see any more deaths from substance abuse. The number of young people who have either drunk alcohol or tried drugs is honestly terrifying to me. All the time you see our youth getting involved in these things. Within the last month alone, you see thirty nine percent report that they have drank some alcohol, twenty three percent used marijuana, and sixteen percent say they have smoked. (has. Gob). Substance abuse is horrible for your health. People don’t understand that these things could kill them.

I don’t understand why they want to abuse their bodies. They are honestly throwing their lives away and they don’t care. Even if you suggest that they stop, it is ultimately their decision to decide what to do. Substance abuse puts your life in danger. It could cause vehicle crashes, cancer, other diseases, and even death. The stress you have in your life might possibly be the cause. If someone watches what young people do, it can help a lot. Its not hard to resist substances if you have good support. Drugs and alcohol shouldn’t be available to anyone regardless of their age.

I know we must ecocide for ourselves what to do, but we need to make the right choice. In 2009 there was a national survey on drug use and health taken, also known as (ENSUED). It states that illegal drug use in the United States of America is at the highest level it has been in a while. The rates of illegal drug use with youth at the age twelve or older, was at 8. 7 percent. That is a rise of . 7 percent from 2008. Some say they even got the drugs from a doctor. (as. Samara. Gob). Around the world, just in 2009 alone there were over 4. 6 million drug related emergency room visits(drugless. V). Believe it or not thirty two percent, that’s well over six hundred thousand cases of all substance abuse, went to the emergency room just in 2009 alone(drugless. Gob). It’s our turn to help stop all this abuse. It should be a responsibility of people to help someone. When we see someone risking their life we need to act. Believe it or not, it only takes one person to make a difference. We should be the person our youth could tell anything to. We could be the one to say it’s not worth your life to abuse yourself. We need to always be there to help our friends.

A good ay to avoid substance abuse is to possibly join a support group. That group should have the same thoughts about how wrong these things are. It’s always been good to have someone to support you. Help spreading this support around would help a lot of people. Would like to make a point by a quote made by a famous musician. “Drugs are a waste of time. They destroy your memory and yourself respect and everything that goes along with your self- esteem. They’re no good at all”-Kurt Cabin (Brainy Quotes). Hopefully if people heard this they might make a change.

Even if you don’t want to stand p to people, you have to sometimes to do what’s right. It would be easier for people if they knew they didn’t have to fight alone. Even if you start by helping one person, you would be amazed by how many people it would help. When you have any problems with substance abuse, quitting the abuse may seem hard for you. Even if everything seems hopeless, help is always around you. Any addiction can be cured if you have the right help and you admitted have a problem. Even if you fail, never give up. Recovery has many setbacks (helped. Org).
