So I, as a Teenager growing up in the UK am exposed to a lot of things; Drugs, alcohol, sex and other such things. I consider myself...a disciplined person, I know not to stray towards the path of drinking obsessively despite peer pressure from many of my friends, drugs are also becoming a major issue for my age group, I know many people that smoke weed or deal drugs, earning them some sort of notoriety. One question to ask is despite them knowing the harm these chemicals can do, why do they still take them? I have many Sikh 'friends' that drink and smoke weed, why? Guru says not to distance yourself from reality, but in taking these substances, they contradict the core beliefs of their supposed 'faith'. What are your thoughts on today's Sikhi youth?
