Most parents, teachers, and even teens wonder why teens do drugs. Teens do drugs for various reasons. Peer pressure, stress, the people around them, ect. But do all these teens know the effect it will have on them and their bodies?
One reason teens do drugs is because of peer pressure. Although at times we may think peer pressure isn’t going on, it still is. Teenagers every day get pressured to do things they don’t want to do. When it comes to drugs, teens get pressured mostly by their friends. Most of the col people are doing drugs these days. And most teenagers in high school and even middle school want to be a part of the cool crowd. And many teens will do whatever it takes to get there. If they start hanging around the cool crowd, they will start to get pressured to do drugs. And since they will do anything to be cool, they will start doing drugs.
Another reason teenager do drugs is because of stress. Teens go through so much these days. Some have issues at home with their parents, and financial issues. Stress at school, with their friends, teachers, and the schoolwork. And so much more that may be going on in their lives. So they feel like a way to escape all these problems is to do drugs. Drugs makes you feel like you’re in a higher place, and it makes your problems go away temporarily. And to get away from everything in their lives, teens look to drugs for the answer and the way out.
Lastly teens do drugs because of the people around them. The people around them influence them to do drugs. If all of your friends are doing drugs, you’re most likely going to do them also. When you go to hang out with your friends, and their doing all these drugs, and you see how happy they look, you’re going to want to do it too. Everyone wants to be happy, and so we’ll do what it takes to be happy.
Teenagers do drugs for all of these reasons. But they most likely don’t know the effect it’s going to have on their bodies. Although drugs makes you feel like all of your problems are erased, at the end of the day, your problems are still there. You’re stress is still going to be there. By doing drugs you’re just making it harder on yourself to overcome these things. If you keep doing drugs to escape what you’re going through, you’ll never learn or grow. And the problem will never be fixed. So at the end of the day, your problems are just going to pile up because you’re not taking care of them. So get up, put the drugs down, and get to work on fixing your problems and your life.
