1 Minute Speech on Drug Abuse in English

Respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends, a wonderful morning to all of you. Today on this special occasion, I would like to speak some words on the topic- Drug Abuse.

Drug Abuse is a huge problem in the modern world, and it has sadly become very prevalent in India too. Drugs are substances that produce momentary feelings of elation when taken and ultimately lead to addiction. As these drugs become more easily available due to globalisation, more people fall victim to them every day.

The youth are extremely susceptible to such drugs. Deteriorating mental health and peer pressure lead vulnerable teenagers to indulge in drug abuse and become addicts. Drugs destroy lives, since drug addicts can see nothing beyond their need to take drugs. We must urgently deal with the problem of drug abuse!

To conclude, we must do our best to combat drug abuse! Thank you for listening to me so attentively.
