A Message for Young People
How to tell when your drinking has become a problem:
Alcoholism is an illness. It can hit anyone: young, old; rich, poor; black, white. Alcoholics aren’t just those old guys sitting on park benches. Young successful people can ruin their lives with alcohol too.
It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been drinking, what you’ve been drinking or even how much. It’s what drinking does to you that counts.
– “It’s not only that young people are drinking but the way they drink that puts them at such high risk for alcohol-related problems. Research consistently shows that people tend to drink the heaviest in their late teens and early to mid-twenties .” -American Medical Association
