Teen Drug Abusage

            Desciptive Essay about Teenage Drug Abuse.
             Drug abuse in America is a major problem and has been for quite some time now. Especially amongst teenagers. Drugs have hurt the lives of nearly 40 percent of all teenagers in America. Either with health problems, highway crashes, arrests, impaired school and job performance, etc. The drugs that teenagers use range from alcohol, LSD, marijuana, and even to cigarettes. Most of the teenagers that are involved in drug abuse ususally have some type of environmental influence, whether it be peer influence or social neglection. But even the most ordinary teenager can develop a drug problem depending on their friends, and relationship with their family. .
             These teenagers turn to drugs because they beleive they have no where else to turn. Maybe their family members aren't ever around. Some teens may have there parents around, but they too are involved with drug abuse, giving little quality attention to their children. They may have flunked school, or aren't meeting the standards set for them to meet, giving them a sense that they aren't worth anything. So what do they do? Many resort to drug usage, thinking that it will take all their problems away. They soon discover new friends whom have the same perspectives about drugs. And thus they have a place to turn, a place where they will not be rejected or put down, a place where nothing matters, everyday can be a good day. Until they finally just fall apart. Often teens involved with drug users and drug conflicts experience a tragic incidence in which someone is hurt, arrested, or even killed. .
             If a person has a lower level of self esteem or don't or can't personally acknowlage their qualities and acheivements they probably don't feel too great about their live's current status. Often these people feel as if they have failed to meet their expectations and also often feel as if it is too late to redeem their self worth.
