Pictures That Could Scare People Into a Healthy Lifestyle

Ayanna Smith

The one thing I have always been scared about is drugs. I grew up watching movies that showed people getting addicted to it and how it is essentially bad at the end. This heavily influenced my overall attitude towards the very idea of any kind of intoxicants or mind-altering substances. And then, I realized that there are a lot of people who do drugs and still live a normal life. I was confused. Not that I considered trying it out myself… but I wondered if it was all a farce after all.

Then I saw some photographs in a tabloid that made my eyes go wide in shock. What these substances do to our bodies is beyond comprehension. Look at the before and after drug usage/abuse pictures of celebrities if you want to see what I mean…

Amy Winehouse

Macaulay Culkin

Lindsay Lohan

Matthew Perry

Whitney Houston

And here are some non-famous faces… sans the airbrushing, sans the photoshopping. Just the horror of what substance abuse can do to you…

Don’t do drugs, people. It’s just not worth it. 

If you want to see worse, search Google Images for this → ‘Krokodil Drug Side Effects’. TRIGGER WARNING. Don’t do this if you are easily triggered. You’ll know why I didn’t add any pictures here.
