I wonder how many would have quit if they knew drugs would be a contributing factor in their deaths. 

How many died prematurely due to their drug use? 

The pain of their drug use and deaths hurt their loved ones and friends who would have liked more time with them. 

“10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and [a]have it abundantly.  11 “I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.” John 10:10-11 New American Standard Bible 1995 

Satan wants you to think that by following Christ you will be robbed of a life of fun.  That is a blatant lie. Look at the people he destroyed pursuing a high.
