Alcohol addiction has enormous and somewhat fatal consequences on humans. It has, directly or otherwise, an impact on the individual, family, friends and the society. Anyone could become a permanent drinker if he lacks self-control. Haring states that "If people drink to relax or have fun, escape from responsibilities and pressures, loosen up to feel more sociable and accepted, or drink just to ease the discomfort of low self-esteem, they are at higher risk of abusing alcohol than people who drink infrequently" (21). Once an individual has become an alcohol addict, it has become an uphill task for him to terminate this particular habit and it is in his best interest that he does not procrastinate any further.

So what can be done The message is clear: The longer children and teens delay alcohol use, the less likely they are to develop any problems associated with it.
