Life Rocks without Drugs!
Life rocks without drugs!, and in an ideal world everybody would have access to support systems, whether financial, emotional, and so on. Just knowing that one has there is somewhere to turn for help and support is often enough for someone to get on the right path leading away from drug addiction. But what of those who feel they have no one to turn to; no one to watch their back? They start feeling desperate, often trapped. They find it increasingly difficult to face reality and resort to drugs as a form of escapism. And then they’re truly trapped!
Each and every one of us has a different perspective on life. Some of us perceive life as being this fantastic adventure to be enjoyed, while others think of it as being this ordeal that has to be endured. Either way, experiencing life teaches us who we are, what we’re capable of and, to some extent, the paths we need to choose to give our lives meaning.
Unfortunately, we aren’t all astute enough to choose the right path. We’re often swayed by emotion and reject rational thought, sometimes making the wrong choices. Some of us are more resilient and can deal with the trials and tribulations of life, taking it all in our stride. And then there are those who crumble under the weight of what seems to them to be all the problems of the universe. Those in the latter category need help to cope with life.
The tragedy lies in the fact that so many people have gone into a downward spiral and lost sight of their lives – their homes, families, friends, careers, and more. And yet, with a little help, a little guidance, they can say ‘no’ to drugs and drag themselves out of the hole they’ve dug. Awareness of what they stand to lose or gain motivates them to go that extra mile – they know it’s for their own benefit.
Ultimately, the decision to lead a drug free life must come from within. And it comes with the conviction that life is too valuable to throw away in a moment (or moments!) of weakness. And that one must cherish every moment of the journey called life – because life rocks without drugs!
