Drinking causes loved ones to suffer, and nobody wants to deal with a drunk. Due to drinking people are being emotionally scarred, abused, and harming their own bodies. Drunk driving not only puts the drivers life in danger but also puts everybodys lives in danger. Being an alcoholic can really ruin a persons life.
These problems can make a person very addicted to drinking because they already have an imbalance of chemicals in their brain. This is especially true for teens because they are still developing and are prone to chemical imbalances. Teens should realize that drinking does not make them cool or help them fit in. Alcohol use is associated with a variety of negative consequences, including increased risk of serious drug use later in life, school failure, and poor judgment puts teens at risk for accidents, violence, unplanned and unsafe sex, and suicide. 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.

Introduction Drugs abuse is serious problem in the United States, especially among teenagers. According to National Drug Intelligence Center (2003) 7.5 million American adolescents aged 12 to 17 used drugs at least once during their lifetime. Teens start to experiment with drugs from a young age and do not think about drugs’ negative consequences.

According to Josephine M. Palmeri, “Peer pressure or the direct or indirect encouragement from one’s own age group to engage in activities that they may or may not want to engage in is a major factor in the development of risk-taking behaviors.” (Palmeri, pg. 1) In addition, many of these young adults will see all of their friends drinking or doing drugs and think that they need to do it themselves. Unfortunately, there are rarely any parties that do not involve drinking or drugs. Consequently, easily influenced teens may not realize that the party they are attending involves alcohol or drugs, but when they are exposed to this environment, they begin to fall under peer pressure. In addition, today’s youth focuses solely on partying.
