As you probably know a lot of people in the world are addicted to drugs and also have friends and family that are affected by them doing drugs. The effects that drugs can have on people’s lives are very bad and in the person using the drugs at the time they think that life is very good.
I am going to be sharing my story about the time I knew friend needed help. When I was 12 my friend needed help he was living in a house that was not very well established. He grew up with plenty of family that used drugs and he was about to start going down the same road.
My friend’s mom didn’t care what he did so he was always in trouble with the law. I remember one day we were eating lunch and he said my mom is always high and I didn’t get my homework done my grades are about to go down really fast. I said ok let me see if you can come over tonight and he came to my house and me and my mom helped him with his homework and fed him dinner. This became a regular thing to do every night because he never wanted to go home.
As we helped him the things that he was doing and saying made it very hard for him to live with us. He was not being very nice and appreciating the things we were doing for him so we kicked him out.
To this day he is doing fine he moved back in with his mom and dad and doesn’t get into as much trouble now as he used to. My friends story also has something to do with my story. I stayed friends with him and together we did not always make the best decisions and I got in a lot of trouble for the things we did and that really hurt the relationship with me and my mom and dad that plays a big part in what is happening now.
The message that I am trying to put out to all of the people reading this is drugs can ruin your life and if you see a family member try as hard as you can to help them and if they turn on you like they did in my life just keep on hoping and helping and things will get better.
