Welcome to a blog about youth being able to be who they are without drugs to cloud the issue.
Since this site is about helping young people decide “It’sFunToBeMe!” which is translated “no desire to use drugs or alcohol to get away from who I am,” we will begin by asserting that life would be a lot better for youth if they do steer clear of drugs and alcohol.
We do not feel that this is an impossible objective. We don’t agree that young people’s lives are so very different today that they can’t get completely excited about growing up and accomplishing fine things.
It is going to be up to the next generation to put the brakes on runaway demand for chemical fixes. It is time for us to admit we did not see this freight train coming, and now the social fabric of entire nations have begun to unravel under the strain of international drug trafficking and the crime and violence that follows in its wake.
The benefits to us are huge, when you realize that we will be able to tap into a limitless reservoir of talent creativity and ability that our youth have and that otherwise could be destroyed by drugs.
Young people want to have fun. As long as drugs pretend to promise fun, they are likely to find their next generation of users. That’s why it is so important for youth to discover that being themselves is a whole lot more fun than drugs could ever be and that trying to be who others want you to be just plain does not work.
Can we have some agreement on this?
