Dear Dish-It: Don't Wanna Do Drugs

Dec 01, 2010

Dear Dish-it,

A lot of my friends and people in my neighborhood are doing drugs and I am extremely close to trying them. How do I keep myself away?

Don't Do Drugs!Don't Do Drugs!

Dear J318,

Drug's are tough stuff. But it IS possible to go through life with people doing drugs all around you and NOT do them yourself! I did it, and you can, too! instead, use all the negative experiences of the people who ARE trying drugs around you as motivation to stay as far away from them as possible!

Think about how dangerous the drug scene can be. You may feel pressured by your friends or neighbors to try them, or you might even be a teeny bit curious - but don't ever give in to that stuff. As long as you can remember how important it is to stay true to yourself and to do what you KNOW is right for YOU, you’ll be able to fight any temptation and stay away from drugs.

If you need to, get away from the people in your hood who are doing drugs - and stay as far away from them as possible! Look for new friends and people to hang out with who don't do those things - and stay close top them. They'll help you stay on the right path and they won't put you in dangerous situations by doing drugs.

  • I've dabbled in 'em.

  • Never! I'm totally against them.
  • I tried 'em once, but would never do 'em again.

Dear Dish-it, Sorry to be a burden, but I need some advice. About a year ago, I decided I didn't want to live with my mom and decided to move in with my dad. After my mom found out, she told me "You are no longer my child, go drop dead and rot in hell for all I care." My siblings, especially my twin, began to threaten me and my father's lives if we were to ever step foot near them again. A year later, my dad and I get in massive fights about everything I do wrong and he never seems to try and see my point of view. He often gets ##### and compares me to my mother and his previous exes. I feel lost on what to do. I feel so alone and so...hurt. Do you have any advice? I know it's pathetic of me to rant on here, but I'm clueless and on the verge of snapping.

My dad and I are kind of estranged, we haven't spoken in a year. So my mom decides it would be a good idea to let him message me. He texted me while I was at school and now I have no idea what to do. All he said was 'Hi _, how is school?'. Do I reply? Do I not? If I do, what do I say? My mom and grandparents are no help, they just cracked jokes about it. KidzWorld has helped me with a hell lot of things, I better not be let down this time.

Just act like you were introducing him as one of your friends. Be yourself, wear stuff that’s comfortable. It’s okay to be nervous because everyone will be. Just hang out and have fun.
