Look ahead!

Look ahead!

I went to high school in the 1980's and it seemed as though EVERYONE partied hearty ~ and we enjoyed it!!? I wish I had known at the time how memories of being high and the things I did at the time would haunt me for a long time.? I'm still very ashamed of some of the situations I put myself in, but at the same time I remind myself of how good it feels to say "I don't do that anymore."? Four years of my youth was wasted doing meth and I'm very lucky to have quit before it destroyed me.? So many people I hung out with didn't make it through and watching them slowly kill themselves is what finally compelled me to put an end to the madness.? I am 44 now, college-educated, a high school English teacher, mother of three, and drug-free for 25 years!? Choose your friends wisely, look ahead and plan ahead, and most of all know that you are worth every good thing you can do for yourself.

Cory needs to keep sending his message. He admitted to the world he had a problem but now he MUST stress that it is not okay for kids to drop out and do drugs. Many kids, especially tweens and teens watch Glee and know who he is and look up to him. He has to convince those teens and tweens that he is one of the lucky ones and that doing drugs will not make you a famous actor one day, but following your dreams can!

Sad to know that, but it would be better that you encourage them to stay away from addiction and dropping from school. But if they already are addicted then it can still be helped. We have at risk youth programs to rely on in situations like this. It might be hard at first but I know it can be done.
