You have heard that alcohol misuse can be dangerous, but what (practically) are those dangers? If you’re avoiding something, it’s good to know why. Alcohol in very small amounts in adults can be beneficial, but for most people alcohol is a dangerous temptation that can lead to the following:

Several types of cancer

Sleep disorders

Liver Disease

Unsafe sexual behavior

Physical accidents

Vehicle accidents (drunk driving)

Violent confrontations

Birth defects

Alcohol poisoning

Death

Be wise and rethink the drink today! Don’t feel like you’ll be alone in your choice to avoid alcohol. Just because some teens indulge doesn’t mean you’re the odd person out. Lots of teens avoid alcohol and other drugs. Be strong in your choice!

This week, our theme with our graphics was binge drinking. Binge drinking is classified as having 5 or more drinks in one sitting for males and 4 or more for females. Binge drinking can lead to alcohol poisoning, which can be fatal. Be wise. Rethink the drink this week!
