It ruins your physical and mental health, your personal relationships, your social standing, your reputation, and bank account. The financial cost of supporting this habit is mindbogglingly expensive and very overwhelming to the average working class person. Drugs are expensive enough to ever so often use it, but if you get hooked and use it religiously, you can say goodbye to your car, tv, and mobile phone among other things.

And if you become dependent, and take it just to feel normal, pack up the rest of your stuff because you probably will be living in the streets.
