We all at Bartow Against Drugs hope you will have a Happy Halloween with your family and friends and that you will rethink using alcohol and other drugs on this festive night. Remember, drugs are not required to have a good time! Be confident in your decision to avoid them and have a blast!
It can be hard to remember all of the reasons to avoid dangerous drugs, but today we wanted to offer you a fact each about alcohol, marijuana, and opioids–and the ways their misuse can lead to trouble for you and your brain. Take these easy-to-remember graphics to heart and use their words to inspire you to live drug-free this week!
Saying “no” to alcohol and other drugs can be a lot easier (and more fun!) when you have the right friends around you. Make sure that whoever you hang out with, they’re supportive of your choice to avoid dangerous substances like alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs. Friends are people who support you in you living your best life. People who constantly encourage you to make bad decisions that can negatively affect your health are no good for you. Surround yourself with only your true friends and you’ll go far!
Do you have big goals for your life? Big changes you’d like to make? Big changes typically come from small changes over time. This week, if you’re trying to quit alcohol altogether an excellent way you could start would be to try a soda at the next party instead of a beer. Small changes lead to big changes in your life! You can do it! Rethink the drink this week.
Let these graphics inspire you in your journey to a drug-free life! We hope that this week you can pursue positive experiences that help build you into the person you know you can be!
As you get ready to go back to school this week, we want you to remember to make this your best year yet! You are strong enough to resist the temptations of drugs and you can make positive changes for your health this year!
