Nigeria is a country that is blessed with so many brains, talents and minds but these brains are draining by the day affecting lots of youths especially students and the non-literates. Today's youths have been exposed to so many illegal, immoral and bad acts that often leads to negative consequences. This acts will only contribute to the setback of the nation because we definitely cannot move forward with half-side of the population. Peer group and influence has aggravated the nonchalant attitude of today's minds. Parents are also part of the contributing factors because some children find solace in drugs when they don't receive adequate care from their homes. Although, a lot of drug addicts takes drugs to overcome shyness, stress and sadness. They believe that the only solution to their problems is drugs. Such drugs include: codeine,cocaine, marijuana(weed)e.t.c. Apart from the physical effects of these drugs, they damage some internal organs of the body when the intake has reached its climax. Another effect could be psychological. narcotics are injurious to the health. Addiction to drugs is a very dangerous habit that most people don't realize until it becomes too late. The people encouraging drug intake, the people selling it and the people taking the drugs are all guilty of this acts. Help your friends who are drug addicts to discover the consequences,give them proper orientation, encourage them to desist from this act because their future is promising. The government should also provide proper counselling, campaign against drugs,empowerment for the youths and create a peaceful society for all to live by reducing the rate of touts in the country because addiction is costly to both the individuals and the society. Parents should also be there for there children no matter how busy they are by watching the friends their wards keep with proper monitoring. Though the effects of drug addiction is of wide range and affects people of all ages but i am more particular about the youths. I can only say few things about this issue but I think the health personalities and people who are specialised in this field can tackle it better. We need to show them love, support and care to overcome this problems. Remember, we are one nation.
