Intro: Drugs is a very big problem in the world many deaths are caused by taking drugs, over dosing and suicide. In this essay i will highlight the arguments for and against drugs and state my own opinion. Drugs are a very big problem in the world. Everywhere you look people are affected by them but even though they are common it doesn’t make them harmless.
A drug is a chemical which is taken into your body if you are in pain or have an ilness which is legal, but other drugs such as herion and ecstasy are illegal drugs which are used to make you feel good and give you a buss. It is estimated that each year in the UK around 114,000 people die from taking tabacco. In 1998-2004 137people died of cocaine, 93 died of Ecstasy and 1348 died from taking Opiates.
Some people think it is okay for other people to do drugs, but they wont think that when one of their family or friends are asked to have drugs or gets spiked then they would strongly disagree and change their opinion. Most teens don’t believe that Marijuanna can be addicative but people have discoverd otherwise. Trying Marijuaana in high school or early stages of life can lead to an addiction that can ruin your life.
You can lose trust within friends and family throughout drugs and can ruin your life. For example a man called Dave tried Marijuanna when he was just a teen and became very addicated to it and continued it for years on. He lost trust with his family and friends, his life completly changed and he was a drug addicat. Dave then decided he wanted to change his life and he sucsessed and now he has became an Engineer and has a good career. Disagree with drugs because of everyone who is effected by them like the children of drug abusers. It is always to blame never victimless.
Mothers who let their boyfriend sexually abuse them because of taking drugs. Leave children home alone because of drugs. Lots of mothers fathers or family members who abuse children in any ways just because of their addiction. Agree because drugs are your own choice if you want to take them or not nobody elses. Agree because drugs can help people out in life and make them cope and live, whereas if they didnt have drugs they could find it hard to live or even commit suicide.
