Most athletes would do anything to win or be better than their opponents. The athletes that are using steroids are cheating by increasing their strength. According to www.DoSomething.org , most doses are 10 to 100 times greater than the doses prescribed. Punishments should be increased so people stop using steroids and so the playing field equals out (preposition). Athletes should be allowed to use steroids in sports, legally.
The most common pressure is fitting in” or wanting to be cool.¨ This directs kids to make the wrong choice, a choice made from desire. ¨Peer pressure among young people can be a powerful and persuasive force.

(Student Drug Testing Prevents Against Drug Abuse, Michigan Library)¨ If students are aware of randomized drug tests that their schools provide, they are less likely to take the drugs being ¨pushed¨ towards them.

Summary “Children Need to Play, Not Compete,” by Jessica Statsky is a thoughtful insight on the competitive sports for children. She is of the view that the competitive sports can ruin the enjoyment that games are supposed to provide. These methods of playing the games like adults can prove to be lethal for physical and psychological health. The author quotes from an authentic source that “Kids under the age of fourteen are not by nature physical.” (Tutko) This means that the games for children need to focus more on their pleasure and enjoyment rather than on the competition. Competition only makes children bound to be winners.
Yes, they could harm the body in the long run, but it’s up to the athlete to take the chance or not. PED’s are just one type of anabolic steroid out of numerous that help athletes perform to the best of their ability and if they aren’t legalized people will still take them. To put it into perspective, not let athletes use PED’s is like not letting high school students get quizzed on from a parent or friend to help them study for a test.

My topic will be about teenagers who abuse drugs in society. More and more teenagers are becoming drug addicts in the community and this leads to most of these teenagers dropping out of school to feed their habit of taking drugs by committing crime. Drug abuse is the excessive use of a substance especially a drug or alcohol. This excessive use of drugs leads learners to becoming dependent on the drug and they end up not being able to function without using the drug, because of this drug abuse learner’s end up doing illegal things like crime so that they can feed their habit. Worldviews have a strong impact on how young teenagers perceive what is right and wrong: teenagers who have religious worldviews/ backgrounds are mostly influenced by lying integrity, morality, and values in this way these teenagers are less likely to go into drug abuse, but the teenagers who have non-religious worldviews are more likely to fall into drug abuse because they have no faith rules or norms to abide by.
Why Drug Testing is Important A quote by Malcom Gladwell states “An aggressive drug testing program would cut down on certain abuses, but it’s never going to catch everyone or even close to everyone.” As you know, drug testing is done to students athlete or not, every year. But schools in several states are wanting to require it for athletes, or students involved in extracurricular activities in Middle school. Although drug tests can be highly unliked in schools, schools should be required to test students because it can discourage drug use, identify students in need of help, and the evidence of the tests can lead to effectiveness. In school, drug testing can discourage the use of it to students. Some students fear that knowing of drug tests will pressure them into not doing drugs.
For this and many other reasons, they are incited to try something new that they think will help them be free and show them that they can break any boundaries in their lives, whether from their parents or anyone they feel controlled by. The first and most important cause of kids trying drugs for the first time is the peer pressure. Since little kids, our fathers tell us who should our friends be and who should not, at that time you may think: ¨What’s the problem I can have the friends, I want that’s not their problem¨ but you are wrong, they just want the best for you. Your peers sometimes
Many famous people are addicted to drugs, they are public figures, their behavior is widely attention, if they are taking drugs, this can cause a lot of adverse effects. Some people think education and imprisonment does not reduce the use of drugs, so they suggest the legalization of drugs. I don't agree with this view. Now there are many new drugs, the medicinal properties of these drugs may be lower than the previous drug, but still great harm to human body. More teenagers try drugs, for the development of society and human health, so drugs must be banned.
Save the game for kids who, having learned important life lessons through their only available avenue, i.e. sports, go on to worthwhile citizenry, and make rules that protect them.

Some players picked the wrong path by getting into drugs, like steroids. Players need to do everything naturally, and work hard to be at the top of their game. Players are taking the easy and fast way of getting to the top by using drug, but it is the wrong way. Athletes need to prove to their selves that working naturally can work if they dedicate themselves to it.

Ralph has spoken openly about the pain that he feels being the parent of a drug addict. He stated that once a person develops an addiction, they become the child that you do not want to know. Ralph is sharing his story to let parents know that if Matt can become an addict, then any kid can become an addict. It does not matter if they seem like perfect kids.

This would lead to a trickledown effect of younger and younger student consuming alcohol. As students are introduce to alcohol at a younger age, it opens the pathway to other abusive substances such as illegal and prescription drugs.

We should not let deadly diseases like these come back and destroy children’s and their family 's
(Tal Yellin, 1)This sets an absolutely horrible precedent for the education of the American student; why is more effort being put into imprisoning, not even helping, someone than teaching a child to learn new skills that could help them stay off a track of drug use? Some argue that rehabilitation, especially forced rehabilitation, does not stop a drug user from continuing to use drugs or committing other drug related crimes. This is shown to be untrue as scientific research shows that both mandated and voluntary rehabilitation helps people change their attitudes and behaviors so that they will avoid relapse. It also helps them remove themselves from a life of crime and can cut drug use in half and help avoid criminal activity in the future. (National Institute on Drug Abuse, 1) Not only does rehabilitation help out the previously addicted people involved, it also boosts the economy along the way.
