How to Handle Alcohol as a Teen Bryan Hayes
Paige McCarthy Approximately 9.5 million Americans between 12 and 20 years old reported having at least 1 drink during the last month, with about half reporting binge drinking and 20% being heavy drinkers (consuming 5 or more drinks on the same occasion on at least 5 different days) Let's face it, most teens drink. In fact 8 out of 10 teens over the age of 15 have had some kind of alcohol before. What is more important is what can happen when you drink too much Maybe I should drive, but if I drink and drive I could kill someone or get an OUI...then I might not get into college, lose my license, or not get a good job Stop breathing? Yup, this can happen too. University of New Hampshire
NURS 810 My friend wants me to go to this party tonight... My friend's been drinking and is supposed to drive me home... He says he's fine, but I remember the news story about a guy who killed his friend... 29% of drivers 15 to 19 years of age who are killed in motor vehicle crashes have been drinking What should I do? Option 1 There must be a better option! Option 2 Have a friend who's sober drive instead, or even better call your parents to come pick you up This option's way better. I'd rather explain myself to my parents than be dead like the friend in the video we just watched Throwing up...this is a very real consequence of too much alcohol Risk taking behavior...this means you are more likely to do things you will regret later such as unprotected or unplanned sex, which can cause STDs or pregnancy Alcohol poisoning can happen too Option 1 NOT drink
You can still go to the party but you don't have to drink. Offer to be the designated driver, tell the other kids you don't feel good, or just simply say no "All teens drink"

While many teens do drink there are certain things that make some teens more likely to drink than others Peer Pressure, it's a real thing Social reasons-a way to hang out with friends and bond, a way to "relax", drinking certain brands of alcohol make you cool Your own reasons...maybe it helps you deal with bad situations that are going on in your life
Feel like you need more info? Or maybe you want to talk privately to a professional? Here's the number
