Humans love drugs. A statement so trues it’s almost an understatement. Humans love drugs because of its addiction; they sell their health, their souls, and their physical organs even their own children just to get to their beloved narcotics. The appeal of drugs is very difficult to ignore; they provide an escape from the troubles of the real world, from all the disappointments, failures and insecurities to a surreal almost abstract representation of the real world where punches on you don't land, insecurities vanish, your worries disappear and you simply are the king of the world. Mind-altering narcotics work in an extremely different variety of ways. Some are called depressants, they slow down the function of the brain by slowing down the messages going to and from the brain, and they give a mellow relaxed feeling. They include alcohol, heroin and weed. Others, called stimulants are the exact opposite, they speed up the messages to and from the brain making you feel alert, confident and active. They include cocaine, ecstasy and nicotine. Globally, 3.3 million die each year for the use harmful alcohol and some 31 had drug use addictions (WHO, 208). Hallucinogens distort reality and make you see and hear things that don't exist. These include weed, PCP, acid (LSD) and mushrooms.

The use of drugs may start off as recreational as a relationship with a new and exciting lover, but it soon turns dark and abusive. Drugs cause addiction, they take hold of you and never let go. The mechanism of addiction comes from the fact that our brains are wired so that we constantly repeat doing the things that make us feel good like eating food. Drugs target this "reward system" of the brain. They flood it with a chemical called dopamine. This gives you an intense feeling of pleasure, so you keep taking the drugs to keep getting that feeling.

In the mean, while the drugs run rampant in your body and give you a myriad of undesired effects on your health. They raise your heart rate, lower your appetite, weaken your immunity, and put you at risk to the endless list of diseases. At this point, your brain adapts by lessening the effects of dopamine on it so you don't get the same pleasure from using the drugs, so you raise the dose and use more drugs. Leading to lessened pleasure from the things you used to enjoy the most like having sex or eating food. So your body keeps adapting in a process known as "building drug tolerance" and you keep raising the dosage of drugs you take in and your health keeps worsening. You try to get out of this ride and stop using the drugs but you get violently sick when you try to quit. You’re hooked for life. That's when your body can no longer cope with the ever raising dosage, you overdose. Your violent abusive lover has finally broken you. Your journey is over. You are dead.

The young people should be aware of burgeoning hidebound of these drugs and protect themselves from destructions. Drugs destroy people’s lives, hopes, and health; it never contribute to people or nations’ wellbeing and progress. The young should always take the lead of innovation, creativity and leadership for the rebirth of peaceful and prosperous world not the opposite since they are the potential of every communities. Address these drug addictions predicaments needs a collective social responsibly from Family level to National or even global scale. Effective and result oriented measurements needed to end these drug related challenges. Alcoholic Anonymous and Narcotic Anonymous are seen treatment and recovery process but the prevention of the Addiction is essential for healthier and prosperous world. Putting place a restrict rules is inviable to reduce and prevent the growing number of the young people effecting the drugs. Accessible Drug tests should be widely used in Work Places, schools and college and many others places in order to limit the drug usage and its addiction. Drugs are dangerous and deadly.
