Drug consumption in India has become one of the biggest concerns of our country right now since it is affecting the youth and the children of our country. In a report submitted by the National Drug Dependence Treatment Centre (NDDTC) of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in February 2019, it was found that about 14.6 percent of the people (approx. 16 crore people) between the ages 10 and 75 are alcohol user and about 2.8 percent (approx. 3.1 crore people) use cannabis products. According to a report by The First Post, there are about 8.5 lakh people who inject drugs, nationally. These stats are really horrifying because drug use in India has gone up rapidly in the past few years. Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Mizoram, Manipur and Uttar Pradesh are some of the states that have a high prevalence of drug abuse and disorders, according to reports.
It goes without saying that indulging in drug abuse can affect your life and the life of your loved ones drastically but, no matter how difficult the situation is, one should never give up hope on making positive changes in their life for the better because a healthy person is someone who is both, mentally and physically fit.
