Drugs mess up with our wallet-makes us pauper.
Our Curtailed ability makes it harder to earn money. However a person under the influence of drugs is quite likely to make expensive mistakes and will e incompetent.

Sports help us enjoy travel and tours. Sports give you a chance to travel around the country and the world and see new places and meet new people. Sportspersons get travel visas easier than other people who want to travel for business, or work or studies.

Drugs messup with our love life and fertility:
There is evidence that abuse of drugs can lead to impotence in males. Abuse of drugs in females affects unborn children as they may suffer from birth complications. The damage that drug use can do to one’s physical appearance is very obvious.
Whereas, sports enhance your stamina and vitality by keeping the body and mind fit. Sports make us beautiful internally as well as externally.
Drugs mess with our hopes and dreams.
Drug addicts carve for their next fix/high and all other things become secondary for as the normal human behavior is ignored for this carving. Everyone has hopes and dreams for the future, but for addicts only despair and nightmare in lot of drug addicts.
But, sportsperson realize their dreams. Sports on the other hand let us set and focus on a fixed goal/target. Once we achieve our aim, we are always able to set a higher and tougher target for ourselves. This way, we can think about the future and plan our life and not just the next few minutes of a momentary false hallucination which drugs provide us to take us to our ruin ultimately.
Therefore, since it is our own life .Let us have total control over it. Let drugs not drive us .Let us not get trapped into drug dealers’ designs to rob us of our lives.
