Drug Abuse, the Naija Guy's Peril

               The party is never a great one unless there is an extra thing to make the guys feel high, you never belong unless you can take as many bottles as you and never stumble, you can never last longer in bed and satisfy your woman unless you take in some extra charge, she will never agree to sleep with you unless you put some stuff in her drink, you can never write that hit song unless your inspirational is motivated by taking it in, you may never be relieve from work stress unless you consult the ultimate pain reliever, you can never survive that emotional trauma unless you seek companionship in it, the images on TV shows you this exciting and fun filled life and you too decide to taste it to satisfy your curiosity.

Of course, in colleges you are all on your own to do whatever suits you. It is at this point the doctrines pass onto them comes to play. The decisions this guys makes determines how well the doctrines sank to his heart or how bad the doctrines sounded in his ears.
