Just Say No to Drugs and Alcohol

Growing up, most of the information I got about drug and alcohol abuse was simple. If you use these substances you are a bad person and you could severely mess up your life. It kind of worked on me because I was scared to get into trouble.

These two very drastic forms of information left me feeling….well, confused. I started to question the source. I mean it couldn’t be that bad if all of these people were doing it and their life was going as great as the ads made it seem. Who is lying here?
