Though there have been many awareness programs all around the world and many people have been made aware of the harmful affects of drugs, the fact is drug abuse is still prevalent in the world. It has not been wiped from the face of earth as most people would like to think, it exists due to some people who think only of the profit they make out of providing drugs to people.
Getting rid of the drug abuse among people in the world can be made a realty if people themselves resist the drugs or don’t get tempted enough to try it out. Perhaps those who strongly oppose the use of drugs are those people who have been taught from childhood not to use drugs, or the harmful effects of the drug use.
This is one reason why you should talk to your child about drugs. Another one would be that children are people who can easily fall prey to the people who wander about trying to make some sort of profit through such trades. Children can easily be tempted into taking drugs and some can even turn disastrous, which is to say that they may become addicts for life.
Yes, it is scary to think of these possibilities but it is also required to be aware that you should teach your kids about the problems that drug abuse can cause so that they don’t fall into any temptation and start using drugs. As they are very vulnerable it would help them to understand that such things would only make them failures in life.
Drug abuse is a very serious problem in which can be and should be eliminated.
