Illegal drugs – why do people take them?

I personally believe a person’s self esteem will determine their likelihood of turning to illegal drugs.

Would someone who thought highly about themself turn to drugs, which can not only be harmful, but can be deadly too? I think not!

This is yet another reason why parents should do whatever they can to keep their children’s self esteem is as high as it can possibly be, so they will want to say no if and when they are ever offered drugs, carrying them into a drug-free adulthood.

It is my hope that my children will know the importance of saying no to such a mindless act as taking illegal drugs, because they have the level of confidence and self esteem required to know they are doing the right thing and will not be swayed by self esteem.

What do others think about this?
