It is a mistake to interfere in a conversation not being aware of what the conversation is about, one especially needs to know the language. There is a special language used in the Internet and social networks. I think the methods of dealing with drug issues need to be in line with the modern developments and what the governments actually need to do first is to learn the language. The governments have to care about the youth from the outside threats, for the rest – there is a family.

Yes, I really think that family bringing up is an important aspect in preventive measures of drug abuse. I am not, however, sure if parents are entirely capable of protecting their child from drugs by only saying that they are dangerous. A family teaches a child for right deeds – this is how children learn to think and analyze their actions. If this is the case, nothing – not even drugs – can endanger their future because they will be able to decide for themselves what they want and can do.

I also believe that drug addicts are capable of recovering and returning to a normal life. I know this better than anyone. I used to do cocain and very often the poisonous drug blurred my mind and was all I could think of. But I managed to recover and despite the fact that my life is now incomplete without football, I am indulging it and doing all the things normal people normally do.

Cocain has destroyed my life and taken football away, but I found strength to move forward and enjoy trying new things. That is why the society has to understand that drugs is not yet the endpoint, but an obstacle, which some of the drug addicts manage to overcome.
