My Dad

My dad does drugs, and it’s ruined my family. It’s lead me to mental health problems. My parents are always fighting, and he gets so nasty. We never have money because he’s spending it on drugs. He blames everything bad on us. Drugs have torn my family to pieces. My brother doesn’t want to live near us because of him. My other brother started doing drugs and wrecked his life too. I don’t understand why people don’t think drugs are a big deal. You’re not just hurting yourself by using them, you’re hurting your family and friends too.
