Drugs and Alcohol

Drugs and alcohol affect the chemical messaging processes in your brain, so it’s difficult to predict how you will respond to them. Everyone is different. Every drug is different. 

Some teenagers use drugs or alcohol because they think it will make them feel better, but they can actually leave you feeling worse – anxious and agitated, or flat, unmotivated and moody. Your sense of reality can be affected too.These reactions may be short term but they can still affect the way you think, make decisions and behave.
