Smokers Are Liable To Die Young, Be Warned!
“Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?
If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.” – 1Corin 3:16-17
The above popular phrase from the federal ministry of health got me always thinking whenever I see young people smoking and making use of dangerous drugs.
I used to ask myself, Why does learned people still smoke and inhale hard drugs after seeing or knowing this reality that hard drugs can destroy their lives.
Does it mean that there are a group of people in the world that wants to die young or does it mean that the federal ministry of health is lying when it says that smoking is dangerous to health.
With my little wisdom and knowledge, I believe it is the wish of everyone to live long and enjoy the fruits of their labour.
But why then does many prominent luminaries still smoke?.
Even some doctors, lawyers, Engineers, teachers, lecturers and many other intellectual excellent men and women who are supposed to be the perfect crusaders against cigarettes and hard drugs, still take the serial killer leaves and substances.
It is not farfetched to say that the major problem among young people (both boys and girls) nowadays is drug abuse.
45% of youths under the age of 25 years today are addicted to one drug substance or the other.
Today we have those who abuse dangerous drugs like codeine, ephedrine, tramadol, hashish, amphetamine, methamphetamine, mescaline, ketamine etc.
But the bad thing about all these drugs is that they can damage the kidney, liver, heart or the cerebral faculty of those that abuse them.
Back to 90s and 80s, we see people smoke common cigarettes like Benson, Rothmas, St. Morris or local Indian hemp which has serious adverse effects. These days our boys and girls has upgraded to smoking and inhaling Shisha which they also call Hookah or Goza.
Shisha is a very dangerous drug which can useless the life of a promising young man or woman within 2 years of use.
Then there are other hard drugs that the youths of today smoke, inhale or inject into their body in order to get high.
There are the ones they call skunk cannabis, kush cannabis, haze cannabis, Opium, marijuana, heroin and cocaine.
These are some of the dangerous drugs that the young youths of nowadays are using to blow their futures away .
And I began to wonder if the youths of nowadays who are touted to be the leaders of tomorrow, succeeds in destroying their futures with smoke, drugs and alcohol.
How secure is our future then going to be with drunkards, junkies and lunatics in charge of our communities???
I just dey wonder…
Another bad thing is that Some of these drugs can kill slowly and painfully.
Some of them can cause depression which sometimes forces many young youths to commit suicide or become very violent and kill other innocent people.
Some of these hard drugs can also lead to loss of appetite, insomnia or madness. Many are under the bandage of drug addiction. The power of sin does not respect academic qualification or social status. Jesus is the only solution. Him alone guarantees your freedom from that Satanic bandage. Receive Him today and experience newness of life!
Remember, federal ministry of health warns that smokers are liable to die young. Be warned!
