Why people who do drugs are dumb
Share This Article:
I write this article because I recently watched my favourite show in the whole wide world The Jeremy Kyle Show. But this time it wasn’t a bunch of benefit scrounging tracksuits shouting at each other, it was a special episode about a drug addict who recently died because of her drug addiction. As I watched the episode document her drug taking, her prostitution, her recovery and then her passing away from a heart attack a week after leaving rehab completely clean and a new person, it angers me to think heart-breaking stories like this still aren’t enough to knock some sense into dumb teenagers putting dumb stuff in their body for fun. People say they take drugs to relieve stress, to block out the pain or because “it’s fun”. But why do people find poisoning their body a way to solve a problem? Because, in my opinion, they’re too dumb to look beyond the night out. They’re too dumb to realise whilst they’re “on a level” they look GROSS to everyone else around them. I have never done drugs (and never ever will) so of course I don’t know what being high feels like, I don’t know what mcat or md or crack does to a person and I don’t want to find out. Anyone can pop a pill or snort something up their nose, so why doesn’t everyone do drugs when they go on a night out? Because the teenage world is divided into stupid people who want to look hardcore on a night out, and people who have respect for their own body and image. I believe that people only take drugs to impress those around them, and whilst you look so cool for taking drugs (apparently) you have no idea what those drugs can do to you physically and emotionally.
