  1. 1. By: Kayla Denault <br />
  2. 2. Being a teenager is a big responsibility. Many kids like to drink and party but sometimes people go to far and drive. When they are drinking, they can danger themselves and other people. They can have passengers in the car and driving when drinking is a bad idea. You are risking your life and someone else’s.<br />
  3. 3. Some of the questions you would like to ask yourself……..<br />Before driving drunk: Do you want to spend your life in prison for killing or doing critical condition to someone you didn’t even know?<br />Do you really need to go partying if you don’t have a designated driver that will not be drinking?<br />
  4. 4. If you want to go party you better know what your getting yourself into before you go and what your going to be doing because sometimes partying can get you into trouble and if you get busted whether they get caught with something they aren’t suppose to have that’s your fault because you shouldn’t of been there in the first place.<br />
  5. 5. Have you ever drove well you been drinking<br />Your may think you may fit into something if you do what your friends do but that don’t make you fit in it just makes you make yourself look bad.<br />Things people do these days is to show there friends that there fitting in the group and it just isn't worth it in the end .<br />
  6. 6. Drugs are very addicting especially if you do them a lot. <br />You may say one of your friends took you somewhere and everyone was doing drugs but that’s not there fault they told you to try and you could of said “NO”.<br />
  7. 7. Drugs can lead to bad things its nothing to play around with its not fun to do something because someone did something wrong to you and you are just depressed or your having problems at home . No body ever sad life was suppose to be easy<br />
  8. 8. One of my friends has a problem with drugs and she does all this stuff to herself cause she feels she don’t fit in and I tell her u don’t have to fit on to nothing all you need to do is be yourself cause if you change for someone you will never know who you are going to be life can get rocky at times but you just have to not listen to what people have to say .et them have there own opinions.<br />
  9. 9. Fitting In <br />People may think they want to hang with the kids who are popular but behind that popularity there probably doing things you don’t know about. <br />You should never stop being yourself cause someone wants you to change don’t ever change because someone wants you to change, change because you want to change not someone else.<br />
  10. 10. Why do people do drugs?<br />I asked why people do drugs I got answers such as because they’re stupid and have nothing better to do with their lives, or maybe they jus do it to fit in and be cool.<br />I thought maybe I was the only one thinking that’s why people do drugs or maybe because they want attention.<br />
  11. 11. Some question’s students answered from west Seneca west senior high school<br />
  12. 12.
  13. 13. National stats<br />People who use both alcohol and drugs also are at risk for dangerous interactions between these substances. For example, a person who uses alcohol with depressants, whether these drugs are prescribed or taken illegally, is at increased risk of fatal poisoning. <br />Mixing alcohol with certain medications can cause, nausea and vomiting, headaches, drowsiness, fainting, loss of coordination. <br />
  14. 14. Nation stats says that people use drugs for stress but drugs don’t reduce stress or solve your problems.<br />think drugs are going to make them look cool but there are better ways to get noticed.<br />There bored and think drugs are going to help but is being bored worth the risk .<br />
  15. 15. According to a survey made by U.S.A.TODAY, 58% of high school students drink beer at least once a week and 47% drink liquor at least once a week. <br />However, students are not only drinking alcohol but also using marijuana. The number of students who always use marijuana is also increasing. 25% of high school students use drugs at least once a week. Why do they use marijuana? They have social or family problems, I think.<br />
  16. 16. I thought maybe their would of been more high school students drinking I thought it was more than half the percentage .<br />There are only 25% high school students doing drugs once a week I thought it was m aye 60% just because a lot of people think drugs make them look cool.<br />
  17. 17. What age did kids start doing drugs<br />I think kids are starting drugs at the age of 11 yes, it does sound ad but my brother is in 8th grade and he says kids be talking bout doing drugs at that age and that is just crazy.<br />
  18. 18. Age kids start doing drugs <br />Research shows that drug use often starts in the teen years. You might have heard that, but here’s something you may not know<br />The science shows that the younger you are when you start using drugs, the more likely you are to get addicted later on. Doing drugs can also cause problems with friends, in sports, and in school.<br />
