Tobacco & Nicotine

Nicotine use is a cause or risk factor for depression, anxiety and many deadly diseases, especially those affecting the heart, liver, and lungs, as well as many cancers.

Prescription Drugs

Contrary to what you may have heard, taking stimulants such as Adderall when you do not have a relevant medical diagnosis does not help you focus and study better.
