Red Ribbon Week Game Activity: Why you should just say "No" to drugs! Play the game and save your brain!
Take it from me, I used to be a drug addiction counselor in a mental institution. I saw thousands of people over four years who had damaged their brains because they stupidly took drugs.
The sad thing about this is that you don't come back from drugs. Of course, the amount, frequency, and type of drugs you use can make a difference in a little brain damage and a lot of brain damage.
And let's not forget that drugs can make you addicted. Your brain will never be the same after you take drugs! The same goes for a head injury. So, if you don't want brain damage don't take drugs and wear a seatbelt / helmet when you need to.
This game is a fun way to show anyone how dangerous drugs are and how they eat away at your brain.
Drugs Give You Brain Damage
