First draft DRUGS ABUSE BY TEENAGERS Have you ever felt the sensation of consuming any kind of drug? Well, many people have, because nowadays it’s very common to see this, specially in teenagers. There are many reason that explain why they do that. Some of them are because they see them as a way out to their problems, or seeing their friends doing it and feeling group pressure. At the beginning it seems like normal or not that bad, but once you do it, there are very high possibilities of becoming addicted due to some substances it contains, and that is when the problem really begins. Why? It is simple. Because you start depending on it, needing it to feel normal, so it turns to a physical and a psychological need. But what is worst is that it is even more possible to be addicted to drugs if you try them on an early age, that is why drugs use in teenagers is a huge issue. Actions must be taken, kids should be taught since they are very young the huge repercussions and problems that consuming drugs brings, and in that way start reducing the number of teenagers deaths and problems caused by them.
