If you’ve tried cigarettes, vaping, alcohol, weed, or even had coffee this morning, then you know how substances can alter your mind and your mood to give you a boost, mellow you out, or help you get through your day.

Many of us use substances in our everyday lives. Some people use substances in social settings (like chilling with friends or going to a party), to calm their nerves, or to feel relaxed before sex. 😋🍑🍆 Some folks may also use them to manage heavier emotions, like coping with past experiences or their mental health. Regardless of your reasons, if you’re planning on using substances, it’s worth learning how to use them in safer ways. 💞
