SMART Moves
PART 1: What Do I Know About Gateway Drugs and Other Drugs?
Today’s Quote: Take care of your body; it’s the only place you have to live. (Jim Rohn)                  
– A drug is any non-food substance that causes a change in the body, the mind or the way someone behaves.
– In your journal, write a reflection on today’s quote.
– Make two columns on a sheet of paper in your journal. On one side, write “Good drugs” and in the other column write “Bad drugs.” Start listing some examples of good and bad drugs in your journal.
– “Good” drugs might include penicillin or other antibiotics for an ear infection, aspirin for a fever or headache or cough drops for a sore throat. “Good” drugs may also include insulin for a diabetic, decongestants (cold medicine) and asthma inhalers. “Bad” drugs might include cigarettes or cigars (bad for lungs and heart) and alcohol (changes the way a person thinks or acts; many people are killed by drunk drivers). “Bad” drugs also include drugs that are illegal, such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin and crystal meth.
– Tobacco and alcohol are drugs even though many people may not call them that. There are different forms of tobacco (cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, chewing tobacco) and alcohol (wine, beer, malt liquor and whiskey).
– In your journal, answer this question: Can a good drug, one that is intended to help people, ever turn into a bad drug?
– When young people take too much of a drug or use drugs to get “high,” they may develop other difficulties. They don’t learn the skills needed to face problems or how to cope with their feelings. In time, getting high becomes the only way they know to deal with uncomfortable feelings.
