5- "Do" for Youth to Combat with Drug Abuse 
By Riffat Sadiq

1-Do Believe in Yourself ---You and only you can change your life circumstances. Your self belief, patience and determination are the weapons with you can fight with your hidden problems that may put you in the line of drug abusers.

2- Do Identify Your Capabilities-- Only passion never works out. You must have capabilities for what you aspire to achieve. Try to identify that for what you are actually capable. Nature has blessed you many intellectual resources which need to be utilized appropriately. Inappropriate use of talent brings no result and makes you hopeless. You will develop feeling of incompetency and worthless which are some of the significant factors of drug initiation among youth.

3-Do Show Consistency--Once you decide to achieve a target then you must keep doing work with consistency. Think many times before taking decision but after deciding one thing, you will have to put continuous effort to get fruit. Jumping from one field to another devalues your talent and position. In the end, your frustration level and guilt over past mistakes will be enough to convince you to take drugs.

4-Do Accept The Reality---You also need to accept the current social and economical problems of your society. Sometimes, one has to work below his level (with low salary package, more duty hours, etc). Initially, you will need to sacrifice for better future. You can not achieve your desired position in few months; it can take you years to make your dream come true. Do accept this reality wholeheartedly and keep striving for good. Otherwise, you will be overwhelmed by frustration and anger toward others. Many youth take drugs in order to escape from the reality of life.

5- Do Face The People Around You With Confidence--- People around you discourage for what you decide for yourself. If you believe that you are on the right path that goes to your destination, then you should be ready to listen what others say about you. Many times, you will hear people passing negative comments regarding your career decision, earning scale etc. But keep in mind that your profession and field can not give money and fame overnight. At initial stage, you will have to invest more and get less. Sometimes, financial crises and lose come in your way but your continuous effort can only make a history. Judging your success from other point of view makes you psychologically disturbed that may incline you to test drugs.
