Let me give it a try, OK.
Hey, teens and early 20-somethings!
I am going to give you some advice. Please listen.
My premise, before I give you the advice is, “ you are all knuckleheads.”
Seriously, I say that because all my friends and coworkers were knuckleheads at your age, and I was a knucklehead at your age.
So, can we agree you are all knuckleheads? Please remember most “knuckleheads” grow out of it by the time they are 25 or so.
Got it, you agree through natural human growth schedules, you are right now in the knucklehead stage.
OK, now work with me….What do knuckleheads do?
They do knuckleheaded things.
There are two very distinct categories of knuckleheaded things-those that may kill you, or kill someone else, and those that wont. Drugs are in the first folder- they cost precious money you don’t have, they mess up your mind, and they mess up your body. Oh. And they can kill you. Drugs can kill in many ways…You can overdose, you can be killed trying to acquire drugs, or you can be killed for having drugs.
OK, drugs, and/or people with drugs, and/or people who want your drugs, can kill you. It is not uncommon to be killed or die when you associate yourself with drugs or people with drugs. Now, for the ladies, people with drugs who want to give you drugs are not your friends. Seriously. They want something else in exchange for drugs, and what they want is NOT friendship.
Got it?? Simple stuff, right?
So, in order to not die from drugs, stay away from them. The ones pushing you to do drugs are not, and never will be, your friends.
I have always defined a friend as someone who will come down to the police station or courthouse and bail me out of jail after I did something knuckleheaded and got myself arrested. A drug dealer, or pusher, will never go to the police station and bail someone out of jail.
SO, in order to naturally mature out of your knucklehead life stage, avoid drugs, and avoid drug users. Each time you make a conscious decision and action avoiding drugs, and avoiding drug users, you will get smarter. The smarter you get, the less of a knucklehead you become. And you can then have, like I had, an awesome thirtieth birthday.
See how easy that was?
