A few weeks ago, a man named Joe Flood came into the Rye Jr. High school to talk to the 7th grade students. Joe has been coming into the school for several years, and visits a lot of other schools to talk to students about drugs and alcohol. Joe Flood is a 70 year old sober alcoholic that went down the wrong path in life. Joe lost his family, his home, his business, and friends all because of drugs and alcohol. He talks to students about how drugs and alcohol can mess up your life, and if you are not careful, it can kill you.
When Joe flood was 13, he got hooked on drugs, and when he was 15, he got into alcohol. By the time of high school, he was an alcoholic and a drug addict. He then went to collage and got a great job as a hotel manager . He had a lovely wife and six children. But he lost all of that to lying about his alcohol problems. He did drugs behind his family's back 's and lost his family, and his job.
He talked to us about our brain and how it has six rooms in it. He also talked to us about how we could kill ourselves with alcohol by choking on our vomit. Joe flood is a man who can really change your opinion on what you think of drugs and alcohol. He has a sad story, and does not wish that that will soon turn into our lives. He talks to us, not to manipulate our doings, but to knowledge them.
