What are the dangers of alcohol misuse?

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


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!
