Answer: Apart from being illegal, underage drinking poses a high risk to youth on many levels. National studies show that teens who drink are much more likely to be involved in motor vehicle crashes. We also know that adolescents are vulnerable to alcohol induced brain damage, which could contribute to poor performance at school or work. Studies also show that youthful drinking is associated with increased likelihood of developing into abuse and dependency later on in life. Finally, studies show that teens who choose to become involved in alcohol usage tend to be involved in other risky behaviors such as early sexual activity and drugs. Please be aware of the challanges that come along with underage drinking and think about making choices that will prepare you for the healthiest future that you can have! Thanks for the question.
