Drugs Addiction and Its Effects to Indonesian Teenagers

Good morning my beloved friends and all the respectable teachers. First of all, I am
grateful for this chance to be able stand here in this beautiful morning to deliver my
speech.

I am going to address a widespread and serious problem within teenagers in Indonesia:


Drugs addiction and it’s effects. It should come as no surprise that drugs have negative
effects on its user’s life. There are already many organizations and platforms that
support “say no to drugs.” We also may already heard about the effects of drugs from
various sources. But my question is, how much do you really know?. Therefore I have
already compiled 3 of the most dangerous side effects of drugs addiction for us as the
teenagers.

My friends and my teachers, the first danger that the addicts must face is injuries.
Drugs use and injuries are closely related because of the violence tendency that comes
from drugs substance. The World Health Organization explains, “Drug use may be
linked to violence at the direct psychopharmacological level.” So it means that the drug
users are prone to violence when they are high. They will easily commit violent actions
like hurting their friends, family, or even themselves because drugs reduce their
inhibitions. Another source for injury is crime commited by the drug users. we know
that drug is expensive, especially when it’s been used a lot and constantly. The addicts
will do everything to get their next fix eventhough it means that they have to steal, rob,
or hurt their love ones to funds their drug needs. It’s no surprise that there are many
drug-related accidents, injuries, and deaths each year.

Then, the second danger that we need to be aware of is health problem. There’s nothing
healthy about using drugs. Drug is chemical substance. There are various effect drugs
can bring to our body, and most of them are harming. People who suffer from addiction
often have one or more accompanying medical issues both in the short and long term
such as nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain for short effect, and if it is used in the
long term it can cause cardiovascular conditions, it can also eventually damage kidneys
and liver. There are still may health problems that accompany the use of drugs. Let’s be
real here, it is impossible that the doctors are very againts drug abuse if it is not
dangerous for the health.
The honorable audience, the third effect of drug use is Behavioral Problems. As I said before, drugs
are chemical substance that must have bring many side effect to the user. It is generally bad for your
brain, and consequently, it will affect your behavior. Paranoia, aggressiveness, hallucinations,
impaired judgment, impulsiveness, and loss of Self-Control are some of the many behavioral problems.
These problems can damage our life. The paranoia and hallucinations can make us hard to
concentrate and will eventually disturb our study resulting in lower grades and failure at school. The
aggressiveness, impaired judgment, impulsiveness, and loss of Self-Control can lead us to troubles in
both school and at home. Are we really willing to ignore that for only a temporary happiness?

Ladies and gentlemen, After knowing the danger of drugs addiction, i hope that it can hamper my
friends’ curiosity in using drugs. The teen years are often a time to explore and experiment what life
can offer. But I can assure you, my friends, that there are more to the life than drugs. People use drugs
to feel happy and to forget their problem. But if we look around us, our friends and family are the ones
who can make us happy. If you have problems, just talk it out, you don’t need to keep it by yourself.
And if you have the urge to try drugs, remember your future that can be ruined by using it.

My beloved friends and teachers, I think that’s all for my speech, hopefully some of the points can be
beneficial to everyone here. And the last, Keep save, and say no to drug. Thank you for your attention.

Assalamu’alaikum Wr. Wb
First of all, let us say our gratitude to the Almighty for abundance of mercies so that we can do our daily
activities. The honorable juries, judges, all respectable comittee of the speech contest, and all
audiences. Allow me to present my speech entitled “The Development Of Social Media And Technology,
And It’s Challenges For Senior High School”. To begin with, let me tell you my identity. My name is Ratri
Hening Pahayu. I am now at the first year and a representative of Senior High School State 3 Metro.

Distinguished audiences.
The development of social media and technology has been increasing in massive scale recently. Social
media enhances people to do communication interterritory. Limitations in term of time and space is no
longer existing. More and more people absorbed into cyber communication. In relation with learning,
these facilities provide learners many resources to building knowledge, skill, and eventually getting
higher achievement. Is it true?

Respectable Audiences
Let me elaborate. Various social media, among others are facebook, tweeter, skype, Black Berry
Messenger serve different kinds of content, features, and facilities. To many extent, these
developments do facilitate people in establishing communication, instructional process, and bussiness.
Group of students can also cooperate in doing their school assignment, practice English both reading and
writing, exercise maths, physics, and many other subjects. Social media is also supported by office
application which allow users to do paperwork and then exchanging the file via social media. Thus,
social media and technology such as, word processing and e-mail promote communication skills;
database and spreadsheet programs promote organizational skills; and modeling software promotes the
understanding of science and math concepts. So it’s true that the development of social media and
technology will bring students to get higher achievement.

Brothers and sisters


Challenges of how to bring senior high school students for higher achievement is getting harder, when
the development of social media and technology also tends to divert youngsters attention from their
original goals of using social media and technology for learning. There are displays with inappropriate
contents can be easily found on social media. Youngsters who lack of maturity also have bigger risk of
getting sex abuse from their partners found on social media. These inappropriate contents related to
sex materials, games, crime and drug abuse becomes places where they spend their time instead of
learning.

To make things worse, there are many teachers who have used the availability of information
technology facilities as their absence replacement. Teachers entrust learning process of students to
some instruments considered sufficient to help. Thus when things go wrong, students without teacher
supervision “With the availability of social media on their gadget” do online socializing even when they
are in the classroom. Teachers neglect their role to lead humanly learning process which is the most
important thing to promote meaningfull learning.
This is also true.

My fellow contestants
The using of sophisticate gadgets by senior high school students enlarges the possibility of misusing
them and turn into misbehavior. Control required by parents and teachers at school. At home, parents
should monitorize the using of their gadget by checking what sites and messages have been visited, the
contents of some folders and photos taken. At school, random check of students gadget need to do to
minimize the possibility of keeping and using inappropriate contents. On the other hand, teachers need
to empower social media as instruction media so that teachers may detect misbehavior and
inappropriate content earlier. Anticipation and precaution can serve better control rather than
extensive cure.

Ladies and Gentlemen


Let me come to conclusion of this speech. Students can use social media to keep up with technology
development but some controls required by both parents and teachers at school. At home, parents
should monitorize the using of their gadget by checking what sites and messages have been visited, the
contents of some folders and photos taken. At school, random check of students gadget need to do to
minimize the possibility of keeping and using inappropriate contents. On the other hand, teachers need
to empower social media as instruction media so that teachers may detect misbehavior and
inappropriate content earlier. This is how far I can go and thank you.
Wassalamu’alaikum Wr. Wb
