  • ...AND NEXT, AN IMPORTANT STORY FROM A MARYLAND MOTHER IS A WARNING FOR OTHER PARENTS ABOUT YOUR CHILD AND ALCOHOL. ALLURA?
  • TEENS AND ALCOHOLISM
  • XXX

  • THANK YOU, TAKASHI. HERE I AM SITTING WITH HOLLY GALRA, MOTHER OF A TEEN NAMED LOTOR.  HE'S A HIGH HONOR STUDENT AS CAPTAIN OF THE SWIM TEAM, SECRETARY OF STUDENT GOVERNMENT, PART OF MANY MUSICALLY ORIENTED CLUBS, AND AN ALL AROUND SOCIAL BUTTERFLY. HOWEVER, AT 17 YEARS OLD, HE HAS BEEN SUFFERING THROUGH ALCOHOL DEPENDENCE.
  • HOLLY GALRA, MOTHER OF ALCOHOLIC TEENAGER
  • I WAS COMPLETELY UNAWARE OF HIS DRINKING, BECAUSE HE HID IT SO WELL FROM ME. I FOUND OUT WHEN I FOUND HIS "SECRET STASH" IN HIS BOTTOM DRAWER, COVERED WITH HIS CLOTHES. I KEPT FINDING OUT MORE THINGS, LIKE HOW HE STOPPED GOING TO SWIM PRACTICE TO DRINK, SKIPPED SCHOOL OFTEN WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE, AND HIS DROPPING GRADES.

  • LOTOR GALRA
  • THERE WAS SO MUCH STRESS GOING ON AT SCHOOL, AND MY FRIENDS AND I DECIDED TO LET GO OF THOSE WORRIES ON THE WEEKENDS. LATER I KEPT DRINKING DURING THE WEEK AND EVEN AT SCHOOL. IT WASN'T ABOUT DOING IT FOR MY OWN HAPPINESS ANYMORE.
  • NOW, IT HAS CAUSED ME TO LOSE MOTIVATION, DO TERRIBLY IN SCHOOL, AND BE VIOLENT DURING BLACKOUTS. I AM MORE AT RISK FOR LIVER DISEASE, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, AND VARIOUS TYPES OF CANCER. I WISH I COULD GO BACK IN TIME AND STOP MYSELF FROM DRINKING IN THE FIRST PLACE.
  • FOR ANY TEENS OUT THERE WATCHING THIS, ALCOHOL IS NOT WORTH ABUSING. A GOOD WAY FOR REFUSING DRINKS IS AVOIDING NEGATIVE PEER PRESSURE. DON'T GIVE IN TO WHAT YOUR FRIENDS THINK IS COOL WHEN YOU HAVE DOUBTS ABOUT IT.
  • LOTOR, AS A CLEARLY BRIGHT STUDENT, HAS FALLEN TO ALCOHOLISM. ACCORDING TO THE 2016 NSDUH, ABOUT 7.3 MILLION AMERICANS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 12 AND 20 REPORT CURRENT ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION. I HOPE THAT LOTOR'S STORY WILL DISCOURAGE YOUNG PEOPLE FROM STARTING ANY TYPE OF ADDICTION LIKE THIS.
