before you report me, this does not belong in the drug thread so stfu!

ok, i've done a few sadly and i dont ever want to again....but i recently joined an anti drug thing and if you are a teen what would get you to stop drinking/ useing drugs? i couldnt think of anything

one person came up with "drugs suck, eat candy"

but really, i need something cuz alcohol problems are big at my school and two of my friends died because their dad got too drunk, freaked out and killed them and his wife then himself... and i have other reasons to be against these but how can i get ppl to stop drinking/ drugging?

This might sound mean and I feel for your friends but you just can´t. Join a campaign or something.

My theory as to why people use drugs consist of; learning, and escaping reality. Fix mental problems and..voila!
For me, it was the insentive to become a productive member of society so I am getting my **** in gear and finishing high school! 3 years behind but I'm gonna do it!

you can only stop if you want to stop if you don't want to be helped you can't be. I know it sounds harsh but usually the only thing that makes people want to quit is girls and jail.

You can't stop them. People have used drugs since they've been discovered. It would be far more effective to educate and prevent abuse (which causes problems and death), rather than trying to stop use which is an impossible task, and has been proven countless times over in the last century.

I stopped smoking pot for a girl


No offense to your cause...but if it werent for her I'd have no problem with it.

But i never would abuse it....abuse is bad.

Safe use, not abuse....would be my slogan

it's just a personal morals thing. that and who you hang around. but it's not really anything someone can be like LOOK AT THIS! DONT DO DRUGS DOODZ..

it just seems like people telling people not to do drugs or anything doesn't do much.
i've never done drugs, but that's just cause of my own personal morals and crap.

If I was perfectly at peace with myself and fully content with my life. There would be no need for recreational drug use or drug use for spiritual and self-healing purposes.

Otherwise, I'll keep living my life.

If people are finding drug / alcohol use to be a problem they need to reevaluate the reasons why they are doing it and examine the impact their habits are having on their lives and the lives of those around them.

Have to run now, but I'll hook you up with some resources later.

Honestly, i only drink and do drugs to self medicate/ escape reality. I hate to sound full of self pity or anything, but for me, drugs and alcohol have been the only thing that keeps me from suicidal thoughts. I mean, i have guitar and school and writing and a girlfriend and stuff, but it all gets too frustrating. Its just comforting to have a hobby that you know will make you feel different (no not necessarily better).

As far as i know, it would take a time machine for many people like me to not do these things.

People take drugs because they're fun. I like amphetamines. Best 8 hours ever. People drink because it gets them laid. I ****ing hate those people. Drinking is dumb. Speed FTW.

try to get random drug testing installed in your school. People would be too scared to do anything.

Drugs are never a purely good thing. There is always something bad that you are getting from your drug of choice. You may feel great, but you're getting addicted and/or ruining your body. And when you try to quit, it'll be hell. My dad's been smoking his whole life, and he wakes up every morning and feels all the worse for it.

I agree w/ bajeda, he's totally right. Drugs aren't a reason to live, and they definately should be a reason to not live (I.e, forsaking your friends for them). I'm sure that there are ways that you can both do drugs and be a productive, happy person, but you need to focus on making people realize that there are better, healthier, and even easier ways to enjoy life.

If your trying to find an anti drugs slogan, think along the lines of saving money if you don't do it. Cost is a big factor especially when it comes to young drug users. Me included.

But there are some drugs with minimal negative side effects and very positive highs. Marijuana, for example, is not a harmful drug. Far less harmful than alcohol or cigarettes. Yet it remains illegal. Most drug users (mostly those who go beyond just smoking pot) end up being assholes and junkies looking for a fix and always feeling the need to get high. But there are those people out there who take drugs occasionally just for recreation who suffer no real consequences. That being said, most people who try to make that argument for moderate, safe drug use are just druggies themselves and also annoying assholes. Whatever...I still like speed.

As people have said, if you dont want to change nothing/ no one is going to make you change. The harder you push someone to quit who doesnt want to the more they will resist and fall deeper into the "problem." I'm not saying drug use is a problem because i myself enjoy the days of my life i have wasted getting well... wasted.

The only thing i can say to help you would be. Be encouraging no matter what the decision, show them a better way without drugs, or not necessarily better but a different but also enjoyable way.

OR!

pass out as many drugs as you can. and once everyone has become addicted and is willing to do jsut about anything for a hit. THen they will realize how much better life was without drugs.

the decision is up to you.

im saying that the band puts down drugs and alcohol and taking the time to learn to play all the songs will keep your mind off drugs and alcohol. confide in something else and guitar is an excellent means of doing so.

it seems people think that im trying to find a slogan or something, thanks but no thanks....
ok last year my school did this thing against drunk driving that hit everyone hard:

they took a car that went through a roll over accident from a drunk driver and then thy put it in my schools parking lot and put some of our students in the car then they spilled fake blood and sh** all over and they were crying and then they had they fire department come over and it showed how long your gonna be sitting in your car bleeding to death before you can get help, sepcially on a country road where there arent many people..... and then a few days later our super intendent called us all to the caf. and told us that this girl in my class was in a car wreck the night before (i think because of drunk driving) i thought it was another mock-crash but then the next day she didnt come to school and the next day and the next day and then i talked to her sister about it and that shi* was real!! and she barely lived...
i want something like that only against alcohol....i dont have a problem with people who drink, i have a problem that every weekend all my friends go out and drink till they pass out. theres only a few people that do drugs in my school and thats mary jane witch i've never heard of anyone dieing from weed....and then they only do it occasionally, so i just want ppl to know that drinking sucks.... honestly, theres no point cept to get laid, and theres better ways to do that

thanks for the help so far

well what my dad would say to stop me from drinking would go like this

"stop drinking or were sending you to military school"
#33
how about "dont do drugs... smoke pot"
seriously tho, i hate to tell you but there is NOTHing u can do or say to make ppl stop getting ****ed up. i dont think its even your right to try and convince people not to do drugs... its one of my favorite things to do and its my choice if i do or dont. i would say... if you dont want to do drugs then dont, but campaigning against its' just gonna piss people off. im not one for giving up, but theres nothing u can do buddy.

If you're not a raging schizophrenic then there's nothing wrong with weed now and then, it's not gonna make you freak out and kill your family, but if your trying to ban heroin or coke or something then it's gonna take a good persuading to get them off it.
