Recently we received the below query from a girl on the lines – Drugs are fun! We thought of sharing it as a blog post for the benefit of other girls who may have similar questions. Hope this helps!
Drugs are “fun”! Why I should miss out? All my friends are into it. Also, I feel it’s just a phase and it will pass out, I can never get addicted to it.

Thank you for your question. Like you, we believe there are many others who may have similar questions and thoughts running through their minds.
So you are not alone!
For some time let us assume you are right, you will not get addicted to drugs. You believe you are mentally stronger than most people and that you have your priorities set right.
But would you really want to use the gifts and character God gave you to try drugs? Your life is precious and your life is meant to set many free from their bondage, but not be in bondage itself.
In Luke 4, Jesus was tempted by the enemy, but Jesus answered, “It is said: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’”
Don’t let the enemy tempt you, fight back with the word of God. These are subtle ways the enemy tries to gain a foothold in your life, so he can grip you fully and destroy you. Remember no addict started off thinking that he would be an addict one day!
And I can really understand the feeling of missing out on all the fun. However, I can assure you that the many people I know who started with just trying out for fun will tell you to run as far as you can from a company that leads you to drugs.
Moreover, Drugs are definitely not fun!
Drugs are meant to destroy you physically, emotionally, and spiritually. There are so many good and productive ways to have fun with your friends. How about going for treks, engaging in team sports, or learning some cool skills together?
Your path is towards rewards and blessings, but these things are only a deviation from your path set by the enemy.
Choose the surroundings and the people you are spending time with to propel you to your God destiny. Because if you don’t you will lose many years of your life pleasing yourself or people rather than pleasing God.
Child of God, it’s ok to say bye to some people and some habits. Here is the verse to gain victory 2 Corinthians 10:5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Keep pursuing God, we are cheering and praying for you! Feel free to reach out to our Soar Girls Community and invest in genuine and godly friendships.
