True education goes beyond sitting in a class room. Going through the news papers and news channels, I realise how death rates have suddenly risen. This saddens me as I realise the significant percentage falls amongst the youth. The question is why the youths? The answer isn’t far fetched as the reason for their deaths was attributed to DRUG ABUSE.
As a general concern to the younger generation, it becomes important that we stress the effects of DRUG ABUSE so as to have minimal death rates and reduced unwanted pregnancies. I strongly believe in the youths of my generation, as together we can achieve greatness. ‘A Drug can be referred to as any substance that alters your brain chemistry, affects your feelings and perception or changes the way your body functions’.
Drug abuse is an everyday occurrence and a major concern in the society. The “RED RIBBON INTIMATION” is one project borne out of the desire /aim to educate people, create awareness about the dangers of drug abuse and to reduce it to its barest minimum . I Queen Labake Ogundero #FOCN2016 believe that people’s main concern should be how drug abuse can affect their life and the lives of those around them. The analysis of the stages of drugs dependence are (Tolerance, psychological, physical dependence and ADDICTION) and all this can lead to
– Losing one’s health
– Losing of relationship
– Danger to pregnancy
– Becoming a crime victim
– Losing yourself.
High percentage of death rate fall amongst the youth and this is attributed to DRUG ABUSE.
