In seventh grade we took four classes in life skills about drugs and alcohol. Joe Flood, a sober drug addict and alcoholic came in to talk about making good choices, he also told us about his life and what he got involved in. Joe talked to us a lot about the brain and how it works. When the alcohol gets into your brain, the brain likes it and it wants more.
I learned that young kids can get addicted to drugs and alcohol easier than some older people. Also that younger people's liver isn't fully developed so if they have too many drinks or too much alcohol, they could easily get alcohol poisoning and you could die from that.
I will not get addicted to drugs or alcohol, and I have learned a lot from Joe and think that it is great when he came in to talk to us, because nobody talked to him about it.
