get_magic_quotes_gpc() is deprecated. please help

Hi everybody,
I am a php developer newbie. I really want to master php in my road on becoming a serious developer. I came to know that the

get_magic_quotes_gpc() function is deprecated in php 5.5 and removed. is there any function that could help in security?

Pleas take a look at this function and give your views. is this code good? Any tips and advise will help

function quote_smart($value, $handle)
// Stripslashes
if (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) {
$value = stripslashes($value);
// Quote if not integer
if (!is_numeric($value)) {
$value = "'" . mysql_real_escape_string($value, $handle) . "'";
return $value;
