Drugs are like poison to the body drugs

What we need to know on all drugs is that they are basically toxins, or basically say they are poisons.

Take, for instance, when you take on caffeine and what it does to you. You feel cool with the two cups you would have taken but the more you take you then feel drowsy and this is how drugs really affect you.

The little you take could act as a stimulant, making you feel the air once again, on that note, the drug would have been a stimulant you enjoy every breath you take as it stimulates you.

The more of the drug that  you then take draws a line from being a stimulant to what they call a sedative something that makes you calm or sleepy.

Alcohol is one drug that over time acts as a sedative so watch what you take; it makes you sleepy and the more you take of it becomes a poison which is why our brothers and sisters have died just because of alcohol abuse, and many a times we wonder how that could happen.

The alcohol would have turned poisonous in the body, so watch whatever you try and put into your system.

Dealing with the young ones l did say the more you take alcohol as a child, the more you cannot remember anything. I just had a Form Three student who says the last he remembers is just the name of strong stuff he had, the rest he has no clue. He goes on to say that he has forgotten his name.

This is what drugs do to you! You will live in the other world and forget who you are.

At times we abuse prescription pills. One has depression and because it’s one incident that comes and goes, you will find one looking for depression pills and one just becomes worse. You will notice that for one to sleep they need these depression pills and the more you take them you become a zombie and don’t know how you can get through stuff.

I just had an executive coming through my line saying since he started taking this his life has been useless, he says at times he just wets his pants, this then becomes something to go through. Next time somebody comes with such prescription pills take note or you will find yourself on the other side of the net.
