Everything you have will someday be gone. Even if you don’t miss it now, you probably will later. So take pictures and hide them in your memories so you can recall them later after everything that is becomes everything that was. OR I know you’re hurting, even if it’s just when you’re alone and thoughts seem to rush into your head and you can’t seem to keep them from coming in. But there can be beauty in pain; Even though sometimes it’s hard to see.

Dear drugs and alcohol,

You make the most successful men your slave. You control millions of minds around the world. When their not on you they dream of you, and when they don’t have you they think of ways to steal you. You’re the reason why so many have lost loved ones. You’re a cause of cancer and major disorders. You’ve taken away peoples voices and their lungs. You’ve deteriorated people’s skin, glazed over their eyes, and robbed them of their youth. Pretended to help people through their problems, and gave false hope. You’ve foiled education and job opportunities, ruined marriages and left children to fend for themselves. You’ve caused violence, helped people fall through the cracks and lead and helped toward depression. You’ve built and helped economies, and gave people jobs. You’ve healed some but killed so many more and made billions of dollars. The world hates you but they can’t live without you.


Someone who doesn’t love you

Frankly, this is good. The way that you've employed the language to express your thoughts on this serious issue is just impressive to me. Well done! @Darkstar6265

As someone with a drug problem, I completely agree. It's ruined my life, I'm so young and I had so many opportunities but drugs ruined it all. I hope others can learn from my and many others mistakes.

I completely agree with you. It is a fact that people can't live without them and we should be ashamed of ourselves that we cant stop this. I love the way you wrote to drugs and alchol like they were a person.It really describes how you feel about them. We need to watch out for people who use them and just advise to them that drugs and alchol kills you.This might save few people from taking them. I feel that these kind of problems could be solved step by step. It takes time but it's worth it.

Specialists claim that loan aid a lot of people to live their own way, because they can feel free to buy needed goods. Moreover, a lot of banks offer term loan for all people.

The personal loans seem to be very useful for guys, which are willing to organize their own career. In fact, this is not very hard to receive a secured loan.

For what it's worth, marijuana is not physically addictive. Your body will never need marijuana. It is, however, psychologically addictive. But hey. So's chocolate.

That is rude. Its called constructive critisism and if obese people are really that bad thru ur eyes, then u can certainly say it in a nicer way. and uk u pretty much just called yourself fat also cuz you had to be on ur computer or phone to post that.

[Frodo] How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on... when in your heart you begin to understand... there is no going back? There are some things that time cannot mend... some hurts that go too deep... that have taken hold.


[Pippin] I didn't think it would end this way.
[Gandalf] End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path... One that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass... And then you see it.
[Pippin] What? Gandalf?... See what?
[Gandalf] White shores... and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.
[Pippin] Well, that isn't so bad.
[Gandalf] No... No it isn't.


[Frodo] I can't do this Sam.
[Sam] I know. By rights we shouldn't even be here, but we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo, the ones that mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end, because how could the end by happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even the darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. The folk in those stories had plenty of chances of turning back only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding onto something.
[Frodo] What were they holding onto, Sam?
[Sam] That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for

Wow! You did a very good job writing that! It's so true, and so honest sounding.

this is a very good article. i love how you wrote to drugs and alcohol like they were a living person that you could "chew out". i disagree when people say tht marajauna isnt addictive, because i have seen not only my friends get addicted to it, but also my mother, who eventually went on to bigger drugs to get the same "high." i have to say, that drugs ruin peoples lives and families. i agree with darkstar6265. <3 you did a wonderful job, keep writing!!:)
