The main cause of drug addicts is less of family values. Family values vital for a forming of a person with good attitudes and behavior. This drug addiction social issue happens due to the gradual erosion of family values. The family which is not functioning properly is causing the erosion of family values. Absence of proper communication between family members, absence of togetherness in family and parents are not devoting enough time to inculcate positive values in the families are causing this social issue.

So the drug addicted people can ask for their help too. We should stop using the drugs except for a medication propose.

Im Piremalatha D/O Karunanithe, from unit J13 (PPISMP) class BT/PJ/KS. By doing this assignment I feel happy because I as a student could gain some knowledge about the way writing essay. While doing this task, I learn how to identify the main points from a article, and how to complete an essay with the points that taken from the articles. I collected articles regarding the issue that I choose about from internet and newspaper and find for points that can be used to write down an essay regarding the points that I got from the articles.

In doing this assignment, I consult my English Language Proficiency 1 lecturer Madam Punethawathi and ask for her advices to complete my assignment. I work together with her and make the assignment look much better.

Second thing is I think that my English had improved a little bit in process to ready the entire thing about this task. I also asked my senior, discussed with my friends in order to finish up this assignment. All those things teach me to be independent and confident with ourselves.

Lastly, I were happy because can finished out this task successfully. I really hope I can do something that can be proud of, not just as task.
