Omar Drugs

A drug is a substance than changes the way your mind or body works. Its relevant to teenagers because they may be under stress, they want to try drugs because of peer pressure then are undergoing puberty, its detrimental to their health and they should be aware of its negative effects. Drugs can effect teenagers in different ways because doing weed can kill your brain cells, marijuana and inhalants could shut down your liver, and it also commits you to do other bad things. A few things I learned from this issue are you can get into big trouble with your family and police. Also in some countries they have something called the death penalty on drugs. Another thing I learned is if teenagers start doing drugs then they become addicted and may never stop.I also learned that drugs are either baked in brownies, put into tea, injected into the vein or smoked.

Some problems/solutions are cartels are involved, especially the mafia, its hard to quit because you need more. Solutions are that governments should do something about the people who supply drugs because in some countries they are so corrupt that they can’t do anything. In some countries they are SO strict such as Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and even Saudi Arabia that if you do drugs or even if you have them you die. My final opinion is that drugs shouldn’t be allowed anywhere and they shouldn’t be easy to access even in the countries that some drugs are legal. My thinking has changed in many ways because before I thought that doing weed just made your eyes red and made you hungry but it actually kills your brain cells.

James – OCD

OCD is something I’m pretty sure we have all heard about and we should all be informed about how it affects our well-being. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is essentially the routine of feeling the strong urge to do something repeatedly in regular intervals or risk having the feeling of doubt, fear, and/or uncertainty. It impacts teenage life especially due to the fact that our adolescent years is the time we internally discover who we are as a person and expose our personality. Importantly, at any age or gender we all may established routines to follow daily, but the notable thing to acknowledge is that this disorder is taking these routines to an extreme causing severe anxiety or stressed if not followed accordingly. OCD relates to me because it is something I have been experiencing or have been accused for in the past. As I get used to growing up, I developed the habit of keeping everything in order and organized. In conclusion, My thinking has changed because I used to think in the past that just following a schedule is a clear indication that you have the symptoms of OCD. Now, I learnt that OCD is something that usually runs in families and can affect how people react to certain desires or set routines.peas-lined-up-in-a-row

Also a big cause of stress is honours or specialised classes. Studies have shown more students are taking honours. Honours is stressful because iT is significantly harder than regular classes.

Justin – Astral Projection

Although it is questionable whether it actually exists, astral projection is assumed to be the practice of separating the mind from the host, while the body is in a trance between sleep and consciousness. Practitioners declares that their soul traveled on the astral plane, a separate dimension of our physical world. More eerily, there has been discoveries of the concept of astral projection having roots with the afterlife.

The practice of astral projection has indeed, aroused heated criticism. From observing this quote that I have extracted from an article, one might infer the intense degree of contempt Christians feel towards this practice. “Spend time with the Lord, and forget the bizarre thrill ride with the devil. It is a deception and a trap.”

The importance of this practice would, I would say, quite significant. The practice of astral projection being very difficult to perform, has very few people who know even a little about it. Who knows? Closer examination of astral projection might lead to a completely new branch of knowledge! With this information, we might be able to unlock an entire array of technologies and tools beyond our wildest dreams!
