Drugs a cop-out

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

WHAT a load of drib­ble, Di­eter Moeckel (ITC, 23/7). If peo­ple feel a need to use illegal drugs be­cause they are not of a le­gal age to drink al­co­hol, there are big­ger prob­lems at hand than not be­ing able to ac­cess al­co­hol. The best way to tackle illegal drug use and al­co­hol abuse is­sues is to have zero tol­er­ance in so­ci­ety to these is­sues. Peo­ple who use illegal drugs and abuse al­co­hol, as a heal­ing or cop­ing method to deal with some­thing bad that has hap­pened in their life or are bored or can­not cope with life, is a com­plete cop-out and a lazy ac­tion on their be­half in deal­ing with their is­sues. There is enough help out there for peo­ple. All it re­quires is self-mo­ti­va­tion to do some­thing pro­duc­tive about their prob­lems.
