brainfunctionMany underage drinkers consume alcohol under the belief that it will bring them to life and make parties and other social gatherings “more fun”. The truth is, however, that alcohol is not a stimulating drug. It is a depressant. It suppresses the function of the central nervous system and causes your mental and physical faculties to become impaired while you’re under the influence. This is why it is so dangerous to drink and drive or drink around strangers or other people you don’t really know.

Consuming alcohol won’t necessarily make you “depressed” emotionally, but if you are already struggling with low moods and depression, consuming alcohol will certainly make it worse instead of better.
