Should ex-addicts teach primary school children about drugs?

With the news today that drug-related deaths in England and Wales have reached record levels, our panel discussed how we can tackle the crisis.

One former addict - who goes into primary schools and shows kids as young as seven the long-lasting effects drugs have had on his body - thinks early education is the key.

Our panel had mixed feelings on the matter of whether children as young as seven should be learning about the effects of drugs.

Brenda said she would want to be educated herself as well as her children so that she could continue the important conversation at home.

Denise opened up about her personal story with alcohol and suggested that if we are going to talk about drugs to children we should include alcohol abuse in the conversation too.

Did our Body Stories campaign help you?

The Loose Women Body Stories campaign, May 2017

JOIN THE LOOSE WOMEN AUDIENCE!

You'll remember when nine Loose Women bravely stripped down to their swimwear in the name of body confidence. It was all part of our Body Stories campaign, which we launched in May 2017. At the time, many of you got in touch, telling us how it helped you accept your bodies too.

Now we need your help. If our campaign helped you, we want to invite you to join our live audience for a very special show celebrating 20 years on your screens.

The minimum age for the show is 16. Anyone who is 16 or 17 must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 or over, and free to travel to our studios in London on Wednesday 4th September. For more information, send an email to enquiries@sroaudiences.com with your name, contact details and the reason why our body confidence campaign helped you.

Please use the subject line: 'Body Stories audience'.
