I Know

I know, and I will always know, that I will never try a drug, never alter my mind in such a way, because I know what it does, to people, and not just to the person using, but to the people around you. I worry for people I know that take drugs, and get themselves so drunk that they can’t see straight. Don’t they know how they can affect people? If they keep it up, their lives will be ruined, and not just their lives, the lives of people they love. My family was torn apart by drugs. I’ve been affected first-hand by someone who was “under the influence”. I know. And, because I know, I refuse to use. It tore me apart, so why would I tear anyone else apart?
