Teens are at a high risk for substance abuse when they hear their favorite artists talk about smoking, drinking or even doing drugs like ecstasy while out on the town. These are the kind of influences we don’t want our children trying to emulate. Parents should talk to their kids about drugs and alcohol and give them the facts before they get a bunch of wrong information from their peers.
The world today often glorifies alcohol and drug use. Television and magazine ads feature fashionable women and successful-looking men drinking various brands of alcohol. Movies and television shows depict elaborate and alluring plots surrounding drug and alcohol use without consequence. Celebrities go in and out of rehab like they are taking vacations while making millions of dollars in interviews. The truth is, there is nothing glamorous about the world of alcohol or drug abuse. The media leaves out the various mental and physical health issues that develop from substance abuse over prolonged periods of time. The depictions of prisoners in jail for drug possession or DUI can never properly portray the bleak surroundings of prison in real life, and the funerals for victims of drug overdoses can never represent the true grief felt when losing a loved one to drugs and alcohol.
