"When the PS2 is not funny any longer, we take action man. When he becomes boring, we start making out behind some tree, and then smoking cigarettes during school breaks. Soon alcohol becomes a nice companion on our journey to a rush. And what is then the next step in this entertainment stairway?
Lina, 17, is one of those who know how that can be. She started early. The first time she smoked hash she was only 14. 'I was drunk then, too, but I didn't think I felt anything at all', she recalls.
One time is no time, but two times often result in many times. It happened in Lina's case, shortly after that first experience she was given some dope again.
Why did you try one more time?
'I had heard my friends saying that the stuff was of good quality, so I thought to myself: fun! I felt the results immediately and got very giggly. I couldn't stop laughing all evening - and it was easy for me to do it again.'
She uses hash, marijuana, ecstasy...
Do many of your friends use drugs?
'Yes, many. It has become a customary thing, we watch TV and suddenly there is somebody who starts smoking. So you do it too or you do not. Nobody cares, really.'
Have you been thinking about the damage drugs may cause?
'Often, yes, when I was using, I was thinking about my mental capacity. I felt my brains have become slower. I can see it in others, they talk strangely, and then I worry whether I sound like them.' "
Just a loose translation of an article from a local newspaper, about an ordinary Swedish girl. 10% of 15 years'old students in our region have already 'tested' drugs. 7% in the whole country. When they are older, they dare more, they use more, they experiment on harder stuff.
Schizofreny, depression, suicide - just some consequencies of drugs... Heart problems, stroke, unfinished pregnancy...
Those young peope grow up without God in their lives. They are being constantly convinced that they are their own greatest value, that this BIG EGO rules every time, that authority and morality is man-given and optional, that family is not to be concerned with (the system shall provide), and that everything is ok.
Well, if life is that good, why then do they turn to drugs? They are looking, but since they do not know the way, they choose the one they know. They are victims of years of the conscious "God is dead"-policy of this society. God is good at such times as Easter or Christmas, good for business, good for profit. But do not try to talk about Him seriously. He does not exist. Does He?
Almost two hundred of years of the most devastating theory and now we reap what grandpa Darwin planted. I came across a very interesting article, Does Science Contradict Religion, by Philip Vander Elst. What a shame that those young people are not taught the real craft of critical thinking...
Have a good night.
Psa 16:11 Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures forevermore.
Psa 25:4 Show me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
