    Hello Johnny, I enjoyed your article. The article perfectly summarized the affects of drugs to not only the individual undergoing substance abuse, but the caregivers/family associated with the individual. Your ability to capture this topic in a different perspective has helped me with my research and blog post about the destructive E-cigarettes, juuls. On my blog, I advocate for the prevention of juuls through communication and education. Your well examined description of drugs helped me open my eyes to the multiple reasons why drugs are harmful. You can check out my blog to gain more insight to this multi dimensional issue https://wordpress.com/view/freshpod.home.blog

    This post did a very good job of explaining the effects of drug users on families and friends. I really liked the part where you discussed how someone has to step up and care for the abuser by providing them help in whichever means available and most effective. I think this was very well written but was missing a few aspects and parts such as the total effect on society, in my blog I explained this issue both in a multimedia presentation and several times on my blog.

    I loved reading how addiction affects oneself and others. I think you did a pretty good job explaining that. I would love to read more about the possible solutions to help with addiction. How is our community dealing with our addiction issue?

    Hi Johnny, I liked your post. I think it is very brave of you to write about addiction. lots of families struggle with helping someone who is addicted. I liked how you added into your essay that someone in the family has to step up and be a caregiver to the addicted person. I liked how you added that because it shows that addictions don’t just hurt you, they hurt everyone around you. https://www.bhpalmbeach.com/recovery-articles/impact-substance-abuse-and-addiction-families/ here is a website link to an article about the struggles within the family who is dealing with addiction.
