Not too long ago I posted on my Instagram story a questions box were people could enter suggestions or requests for future blog posts. I was asked to write about drugs and I am willing to only write about why I don’t like to take illegal drugs or smoke.
First of all, if you like to take drugs or smoke you do you.
Second of all, don’t peer pressure others into drugs or smoke or anything as a matter of fact
Third of all, if someone doesn’t want to or like to take drugs or smoke then they don’t like to and that’s the end of the conversation.
Fourth of all, shame on everyone who has pushed me to a point where I have had enough fire in me to vent on my blog page. You know who you are and may god bless you with the life you deserve.
Fifth of all, lets get on to the post:
- Medical drugs are ok but under certain circumstances as well. If a medical professional prescribes me anything, I fully trust them to take it.
- Other drugs are a big no no
- I have other ways to escape reality: food
- I rather spend my money on other things that spark my joy: food
- I have other ways to de stress: food
- I have other ways to be happy: food
Don’t you think that is enough reasons for someone not to take drugs or smoke? It seems as that the answer is no, unfortunately. So here is a whole lot of points directly quoted from https://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/health/HealthyLiving/How-drugs-affect-your-body:
“When affected by drugs:
- You are more likely to have an accident (at home, in a car, or wherever you are).
- You may be vulnerable to sexual assault or you may engage in unprotected sex. Either of these could lead to pregnancy and sexually transmitted infection.
- You could commit a sexual assault or other violent act.
- You may find it hard to sleep, think, reason, remember and solve problems.
Drug use can also result in long-term health outcomes that include:
- harm to organs and systems in your body, such as your throat, stomach, lungs, liver, pancreas, heart, brain, nervous system
- cancer (such as lung cancer from inhaling drugs)
- infectious disease, from shared injecting equipment and increased incidence of risk-taking behaviors
- harm to your baby, if you are pregnant
- acne, or skin lesions if the drug you are taking causes you to pick or scratch at your skin
- needle marks and collapsed veins, if you inject regularly
- male pattern hair growth in women, such as facial hair
- jaw and teeth issues due to clenching and grinding your teeth; or bad breath, teeth cavities and gum disease
- mood swings and erratic behaviour
- psychosis (losing touch with reality)
- accidental overdose
- higher risk of mental illness, depression, suicide and death.”
So it is a no for drugs and smokes for me. You can continue to roll your eyes and ignore all these health talk. Bye.
