Being Drug Free and Happy

If you question people on being drug free and happy, you will come across endless stories of positive lives full of hope and success. These are people that have dealt with the vagaries of life with a positive approach, and have never had their judgement clouded by drugs and alcohol.

Positive minds for positive lives.

Be Positive Be Drug Free

Everybody has ups and downs in their lives – some people can cope through their own strength and fortitude, while others give in to despair. The latter category usually fall prey to various degrees of escapism — by indulging in drug or alcohol abuse. They prefer to remain in a drug or alcohol induced stupor to ease their pains. It helps them to achieve a state of mind where nothing matters and they don’t have to deal with grim reality. And so they forget what it is like to be free of drugs.

Yet for your life to be a positive one, and also for those around you, you have to first have the courage to say No To Drugs and Yes to Me!

With Red Ribbon Week 2013 fast approaching, this is a great opportunity to get involved: spread the word about the benefits of leading a drug free life. If we all participate we can make a difference to thousands or tens of thousands of lives all across the US.

Red Ribbon Week  activities encompass a wide range of events that can be carried out in schools, neighborhoods, houses of worship, organizations and the workplace. This gives each and every one of us a chance to play a part and bring our communities together for a worthy cause: the future of the country’s health.

Each one of us can help in our own small way, without having to make a huge effort. For instance, we can carry drug prevention banners or wear red ribbons and urge our friends do the same. We can carry these banners to parades, around the neighborhood and even to school. We can support these messages by speaking with other youngsters and encouraging them to stay away from drugs and alcohol – to be drug free and happy!
