Welcome to DARE. My name is SuperStar9. Have you ever wondered what D.A.R.E. means? Well, there are two meanings. The first meaning is Drug, Abuse, Resistance, and Education. The second meaning is Define, Assess, Respond, Evaluate. This is a decision making model. It means to describe the problem, challenge, or opportunity. What are your choices? Make a choice and use the facts and information you have gathered. Review your decision. Did you make a good choice?

I have learned a lot in D.A.R.E. I don’t know where to start. I learned about tobacco, marijuana, and alcohol and how they are bad for your body.

The most important thing was they made alcohol advertising like bibs for baby, shirts, and more. This is important because imagine your kid with the alcohol bibs and with your favorite alcohol drink. Alcohol leads to loss of coordination, slowed reflexes, loss of self – control, poor judgment, and slurred speech. But most important is memory lapses. Did you know that about 84.1 of 8th graders don't drink? Imagine how many do drink?

I also learned how tobacco affects your body. It gives you lung cancer, mouth cancer, throat cancer, and yellow teeth. With yellow teeth your wife or girlfriend won’t want to kiss you.

Marijuana harms short-term memory loss, loss of the ability to concentrate, slows coordination and reflexes, and effects your ability to judge distance, speed and reaction time. These are important in sports or even riding a bike. Did you know that about 93.2% of 8th graders don’t smoke?

The skills I learned are to make good choices and say no to tobacco, alcohol, and marijuana, and how to know when you have a good friend. Most important, you have to keep your body healthy.

I promise to make good decisions about alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. I hope you’ve learned about D.A.R.E. If you do one of these things now you know what it could do to your body. Have a great day. Thank You.
