I wonder how this party has this much alcohol!
Not only is the consumption of alcohol (for us) illegal, but the entire processes performed to attain the drinks, is against the law.
Possession of alcohol of those under 18 is illegal.
Also, it's illegal to sell alcohol for minors, or purchase if for them.
Ugh, you're such a party pooper!
Many drinks later... alcohol intoxication.
I feel terrible. This never happens, I don't ever want to drink again!
Hey girl! I'm leaving my mom is asking where I am. You'll need to find someone else to drive you home!
Many drinks later... a drunk driving accident.
My friends' stories are only two examples of the vast amount of incidents that could've happened. Something that isn't often talked about is the affect alcohol does to a developing brain. That's right, there are long-term consequences. Alcohol is a depressant, meaning it slows down the brain. The consumption of alcohol when the brain is still developing, will result in many issues. A few of them include:slurred speechconfusionpoor visionpoor muscle control and judgementslower reactionslack of coordinationsleep disruptionMake safe decisions and consider all the consequences and responsibilities!
