Live Life to the Fullest

Young people, with regards to teenagers and young adults, would seek approval from their immediate peers. To say ‘no’ in certain situations, can mean that they are kicked out of their peer group. In this way, many people would say or do irregular things just to get approval from their peers. Therefore, many youngsters would start to use drugs, which can lead to dangerous addictions and according behavioural disorders. Slogans like ‘YOLO’ and ‘Go big or go home!’ are used within the wrong contexts, pushing the youth in the wrong direction to succumb to dangerous behaviour. According to South African statistics, more than 7% of the population are abusing drugs, totalling an amount of 3.74 million people ending up in drug rehabilitation centres, of which most are in Gauteng.

Addicted to drugs

The youth is under the impression that drug abuse will solve their problems and make them forget about life’s issues, avoiding the inevitable confrontations to solve these issues. However, the proverbial fun can turn into a form of addiction, which can be very cruel on the mind and body of the specific person. Without even knowing it initially, the addict soon develops a consuming need for the specific drug, which changes that person’s whole life, as well as their daily routine. This forms a downward spiral that only has negative effects on the addict. However, the crucial part of the story is: The sooner the addict realises and admits that they need help, the easier that person will have the opportunity to get back to a life of sober living wellness – free of their addiction. The best way to help an addict, is to get them admitted to a drug rehabilitation centre as soon as possible.
