There's a party tonight at my friend's house. We'll have a bonfire, eat food, and drink. Do you want to go?
Drinking? Alcohol can be dangerous. It can cause heart disease in the future, along with unintentional injuries, or possible pregnancies for us at this age. I think I am going to stay home tonight.
Oh. Ok. But we are still young. We should still be able to live a little.
Live a little, sure, but teens under the age of fifteen drinking, will most likely depend on alcohol later throughout their life.
Oh. I didn't know.
And specifically as women, if we relied on alcohol, we would have a better chance of dying because of alcohol. About 50 to 100 percent of woman who rely on alcohol end up dying because of an alcoholic cause.
Maybe I shouldn't go to the party tonight either. Thanks for the information.
Instead of the party, would you want to go to Pancheroes with me for lunch tomorrow? I could pick you up around 11:30?
yeah. That'd be great.
