Last year in late December in Ottawa, police investigated 20 drugstore robberies and four attempted robberies, all targeting
, which are some of the most
painkillers on the market.
Random teenagers wouldn't be stealing drugs for no reason. Everyone has a reason for their actions. What makes them so addicting? Why are drugs the answer to our problems?
Personally, I think that it's impossible to change someone -anyone. People
the most hardest thing to change, right? We all have our own opinions and choices. If you're going to prevent someone from doing drugs you need to realize who you're talking to. Its really their choice if they want to let go or not.
But that doesn't mean you need to let go too. You can slowly help that person lift his addiction. Make goals like: go three days without (whatever the drug it might be), and keep extending that.
Prevention for Me
A while ago I
myself that I would only use prescription drugs for medical reasons.
Till today I have kept that promise, and want to keep it that way. But if someone did offer me some drugs, or I was in a situation involving that,

I was stuck thinking I'll lose my friends with that, then I'd probably come up with a white lie.

worldwide. Many people think this is safe, but when taken in a large amount, the results can be
If any of these symptoms occur, you

If your friends think your uncool because you didn't take the drug, than maybe they aren't true friends at all.
I mean I wouldn't stuff myself with a drug that can do harm to my body just to look cool.
"I don't know at what point exactly it started to be a problem. I just remember liking it more and more,"explains the international pop star. The rapper talked about how he never felt he had a problem with drugs, as he wasn't. He admits that he was hooked to Vicodin, Valium, and Xanax.
His addiction to prescription pills soon took over his life, and he recalls the moment he nearly died after taking an overdose. "My organs were shutting down. My liver, kidneys, everything... They didn't think I was going to make it. My bottom was going to be death," he says.
During the peak of his drug addiction, Eminem reveals that he was taking up to
pills a day. In 2007 he overdosed on methadone. "The doctors told me I'd done the equivalent of
four bags of heroin
. They said I was two hours from dying."
