How to Tell if Your Teen Is Using Drugs

Nearly half of all teens will try drugs before they turn Eighteen. Some teens use marijuana (and/or) alcohol regularly. A fairly small amount of teens are addicted to drugs, but that number is growing. Use this guide to help decide of your teen is using drugs

  1. 1

    Look for drastic changes in appearance. This is one of the first cries for attention if that is what they are seeking.

  2. 2

    Look for falling grades. Teens who use drugs sometimes are less likely to value academic performance, so this is a telltale sign. Search for drastic drops, not just little dips. This could be due to anything.

  3. 3

    Note your child’s altered eating and sleeping habits, like poor appetite and insomnia. Sudden desires for sweets as well as weight loss indicate addictive swings typical of drug use.

  4. 4

    Change in interest. Take seriously any mysterious rejection of interests that were once important to your child, like sports and hobbies.

  5. 5

    Monitor their attitude. They might become much ruder and more rebellious than usual, and they might refuse to do any chores unless paid.

  6. 6

    See who they hang out with. Their friends may be more rebellious than usual, and/or they might bring home new friends, or neglect their old ones.

  7. 7

    Watch if they lose interest in their usual activities. They might abandon their usual hobbies, or take up new ones.

  8. 8

    Consider their mood. They may be grouchy and may mope around in a lazy mood most of the time.

  9. 9

    Be aware if they are always asking for money. They might be spending their money on drugs. If they ask for money, ask them what they need it for.

  10. 10

    See if they take to wearing sunglasses a lot (to hide dilated pupils, or red eyes caused by marijuana). Also if they always carry eye-drops with them.

  11. 11

    Pay attention to how they smell. If they were drinking or doing drugs, you might be able to smell it on their clothes or breath. If they smell like they just sprayed of perfume or cologne they might be trying to cover up the scent.

  12. 12

    If they start being away from home more than ever before, ask where they’re going and who’s going to be with them.

  13. 13

    In many cases, drug use is a result of boredom.

She had a sister who was also her best friend. Now her sister is addicted to Heroin and she can do is pray that her sister will the battle against this powerful subs

 
What happened is what I ask myself everyday.
What was she thinking knowing she’d be putting her life to waste.
This is my sister and I love her with all my heart,
But doing drugs has only kept us far apart.
I never thought she would end up this way,
It hurts me knowing I can’t help her, so all I do is pray,
I pray for her to open her eyes before it’s too late.
Dealing drugs and stealing became her hobby,
I guess she doesn’t care if her kids end up without a mommy.
Why can’t she be the way she was before?
Now that was my sister, the one that always loved me more.
She was my best friend, we were always together,
Nothing ever kept us apart because we promised we’d be sisters forever.
I guess forever finally came to an end.
She don’t love me anymore now, Heroin became her new friend.
I cry every time something reminds me of my sister,
I feel anger and pain inside knowing I can’t help her.
But I won’t lose faith,
Every night I will pray,
Cause I know someday God will show her the way.
So now I put this poem to an end and wish only for the best,
I pray it’s never my sister who will someday be laid to rest!
