Zahid Ahmed Reveals How He Was A Victim Of Drug Addiction
“Yes, I have been into drugs. I have used hash a lot in my life, and now Alhamdulillah, I have quit.” The actor mentioned.
He continued and stated how there is enough drama in the world; society has completely changed. The actor added, “Karachi is the second most popular city when it comes to marijuana consumption, so we should talk about it. My sons are growing, and in their surroundings, people use it because it’s common.”
“In Islamabad, crystal meth is being sold on school campuses, and crystal meth is death. The person who uses it dies in 2-3 years.” Zahid Ahmed told Iffat Omar.
Talking about his experience, the Ishq Zah-e-Naseeb actor also said, “It’s my 10-15 years of experience, and I want to say, if it has no side effect, then it has no advantage as well. When I left drugs, I felt a lot of change.” The actor advised the youth to think about this and stop using drugs because it’s harmful to your mental and physical health.
“Why are we not talking about it? When will we talk about it? Why are you judging it as a sin? It is in our society, and I have made a whole video on this topic on my channel. If you see youngsters, they say that marijuana and hash are not haraam in Islam and it has no side effects”, he added.
“I can say when you are high, it becomes damn easy to not give a damn about anything, and because of this, people use it. After listening to this, it must sound positive, but if you see it from another perspective, it is about ‘you are not giving damn about anything in life”.
“When you are high, you are not giving damn about relationships and not bother about anything in life. You are detached, numb, and it is an easy escape from life. You stop growing as a person completely,” Zahid Ahmed further added.
