Drug addiction is fatal to health. Yet drug addicts cannot free themselves from the clutches of drugs without professional help and family support. Drug addiction means the regular intake of drugs by smoking, inhaling or by injections. At first, people take drugs out of frustration or to prove themselves smart. However, in their innocence, they actually jump into a terrible abyss. Drug addicts suffer intense pain and damage to the brain and other internal organs. Eventually, they die, if they remain untreated. Drug addiction can be controlled and even stopped by using the media to raise awareness about the terrible effects of drug addiction. Guardians should keep a watch over the lifestyle of their children. Drug peddlers should be arrested and given an exemplary punishment. Drug addicts should be identified and given proper treatment. More rehabilitation centers should be set up to help them. It should be remembered that addicts under the influence of drugs can do terrible things. They are responsible for anti-social activities. Thus it is seen that drugs which are taken out of frustration lead to complete hopelessness and even death. So steps must be taken to wipe out drug addiction from society for a better tomorrow.
