Need to strengthen my faith

Hi, i'm a catholic by the way. I need to strengthen my faith. Even though I know for a fact drugs, alcohol (i'm underage) and sex are all bad things something tells me I should try them for fun. But I know these are wrong, and some other part of me tells me I need to follow christ, and strengthen my faith. But I simply cant find it in me to strengthen it, any advice?

You are right that all those things are bad, but you are not right that you should try then for fun. I've never actually tried any of them but each one has negative effects and each one is not what God wants you to do. If you want to grow in your faith I suggest you look up scriptures about faith. And test your faith, when you lose something and wish to find it the first thing you should do is pray that you will find it. Pray about the smallest things and look for blessings everywhere. You'll be surprised with how much God blesses you. When you feel lonely just talk to him as if he were your best friend and as if he was standing there with you. I know that having faith is hard, but it is the right thing to do. Live your life so that in the future you will not regret anything like drugs, alcohol, or sex. Live your life so that someday you will look back and thank God for helping you to strengthen your faith because if something tells you that you need to follow Him I guarantee you there is a reason for it. I'm not catholic so I don't know what your church is like but I know that with my church I could go to any of my fellow saints and ask them to pray for me, and in your case I'm sure prayer would help a lot. I'll be praying for you. God loves you and God bless you.
