Elie Wiesel’s Night should not be banned from the book list for ninth grade because it is a book that teaches very important lessons despite the fact that it contains violent scenes. The book shows that we should treat people in a good way even if they are not like us. It reveals the horrible consequences of inhumanity, the meaningless suffering and unbearable pain of innocent people. These reasons show that the book is very important for the grown-ups because it deals with fundamental questions about humanity and moral values.
Although I was able to pass the class, and the passing grade on my AP test meant I got my grade boosted to an ‘A’ automatically, the failure I felt in the first couple of months was unlike anything I had experienced at that point. If I had not been desperate to find a better way to study, I wouldn’t have discovered that music soundtrack, and I might never have discovered Sierra Boggess and her powerful quotes. Even though I wasn’t happy at the time with my abysmal test and quiz scores, I’m glad I was able to learn this lesson that I am already enough, as it has changed my entire outlook on life so much. Now the next time I’m disappointed with a test score, or angry with myself for messing something up, I will be able to remind myself that I am always
Crystal meth is highly addictive, and has more cons than pros. A terrible side effect of meth is that it causes the user to pick at the skin so much when high, that it causes sores and even scares to be left on the body. The reason for the self inflicted wounds is because “you think that bugs are crawling under your skin” (Just Think Twice). Meth also can cause users to lose their appetite, resulting in a thin skeletal like body structure. And finally, it causes body temperatures to rise at a drastic rate, causing major dehydration before the body can do anything about it because the brain had reacted so slowly (Just Think
In the late stages of meth mouth, the results are debilitating. After a continuous cycle of neglectful oral hygiene, dry mouth, rampant tooth decay, progressive gum disease, and a high-risk diet, teeth can decay to the gingiva. This is when teeth can fall out and become decayed all the way to their roots. With many meth abusers, a long-term paranoia may also settle in, resulting in teeth grinding that catalyzes the fracture of teeth and tooth loss, resulting in partial and sometimes full
Telling them that drugs can harm their brain cells if they consume drugs while their brain are still in the process of growing. Drugs can harm the body from the outside and the inside. Sometimes that harm can lead to a higher risk of dying because of the damage being done. Drugs like heroin, ecstasy, alcohol, and many more can cause your brain to be in another condition of not being able to be in control of your body. For example, one of my friends, uncle has been doing cocaine and drinking alcohol since he was 27 now that he is 35 he has horrible chest pain and his heart rate is very high leading him to have a heart attack at any moment.
The difference between the base and the salt formulations of cocaine is seen in the onset and the intensity of effects. Orally consuming cocaine produces effects within 15 min, while intranasal use produces an effect within 3 to 5 minutes with a duration of action of 30 minutes. Intravenous route of cocaine, however will start having effects within 30 to 45 seconds after administration. Smoking the free base form of cocaine only takes only 7 to 10 seconds to produce an effect with a duration of actions of 15
People who smoke have a much bigger risk at getting periodontal disease. Tobacco products also cause your gums or any other surface in your mouth to take longer to heal. That is caused because smoking will inhibit the growth of blood vessels. Therefore, less blood flow to the area. This means it is less likely that treatment will be successful.
I think is a wonderful quality to have as a song. The quote that finishes out the song is the perfect ending. It reminds that we only have one lifetime, and we should use it wisely. We should spend our life loving and never hating, but mostly the quote just tells me that everyone deserves an equal chance at happiness. I think that is something that we should all live by.
For example, if you have a bad friends, they can persist you to taste it. If you start to taste it, then it will go on for many times. Also that bad friends encourage you to do another bad behaviours. Day by day, you will change to monsters. For instance, you will abuse to other people and you will hurt them.
“The University of Michigan study estimates that one baby is born addicted to some sort of opiate every hour in the U.S. and that 13,539 babies are born with NAS [Neo-Natal Abstinence Syndrome] each year.” (www.narconon.com). NAS is a condition that results when mothers use opiate based painkillers or other sorts of opiates during pregnancy and the child becomes addicted in utero, is born. Babies are innocent victims of addiction.
Last year, 4 million young Americans ages 12 and older received treatment for alcohol or illicit drugs. Millions more didn’t seek help. Forty-one percent of 12th graders report alcohol consumption in the previous 30 days. The types of prescription medications most commonly abused by people are painkillers (such as Vicodin and OxyContin),
Before the incident is was shown that he was addicted to heroin which shows that drugs can lead you into the path of crime (Gordon Deegan). In the Brave New World Linda; the mother of john the savage, took soma to get very high but ended up taking way too much which drove her to falling into a “soma coma” The doctor gave Linda as much as 20 grammes of soma a day which put her in the coma. The doctor then tells John that “One day the respiratory centre will be paralyzed. No more breathing.
She is worried about more children become addicted to heroin. They are making heroin faster and cheaper, which is why more children are getting access to it. Heroin today is also more pure than it was in the past. That makes it easier for someone to get addicted to
