Rethink your choice of drink.
Alcohol is one of the number one promoters for violence, sex assault, and fatal car accidents.
How Alcohol Effects Your Body
Alcohol first acts as a stimulant, and then it makes people feel relaxed and a bit sleepy.
Even moderate amounts of alcohol consumption seriously affect judgment and coordination. Drinkers may become confused, depressed, and have slow reaction times.
Drinking a lot in a short period of time may cause alcohol poisoning.
Teens and youth who use alcohol can become psychologically dependent upon it to feel good, deal with life, or handle stress. The more youth drinks and the more often a person drinks causes their bodies to need more and more to achieve the same kind of experience as they did in the beginning. The more you drink at a younger age the more likely you are to become addicted later on.
Honestly who wants to hire a drunk? Alcoholism affects your life if you ever want a job, keep real friends, or live a healthy life.
