Yeah I'm so glad someone remembered to bring alcohol!
Underage Drinking is BAD!
Why did I drink so much last night? I'm so hungover and I don't feel very good.
That was an awesome party last night!
My head hurts, I feel really nauseous, and I'm tired.
Alcohol can have many effects on your body. It can damage your organs, give you cancer, and give you a higher chance of having a heart attack or stroke.
Alcohol can cause you to slur your speech, stagger, become disoriented, and have alcohol poisoning.
These teenagers had a party last night that involved alcohol. The two in the back didn't have a lot to drink but the one boy in the front got very drunk. He is now experiencing something called a hangover. Drinking can cause short-term problems but also long-term ones.
Alcohol can also have long-term effects.
The boy goes to the nurse where she explains that his headache, nausea, and tiredness are all symptoms of a hangover. She tells him about how his liver can only handle about one drink per hour and when he drinks too much the alcohol seeps into his bloodstream. This is called being intoxicated.
I'm never going to drink again.
Alochol poisons your body and slows it down becasue it is a depressant. When you get drunk you may get delirious or experience hallucinations. You may also start having tremors or unstoppable shaking. The alcohol effects your brain which causes you to lose control over you actions, emotions, and your perception.
Alcohol can cause you to develop cancer in the mouth, throat, lungs, liver, pancreas, and rectum. It can also damage your heart, pancreas, liver, and brain. You could develop high blood pressure, have an increased risk of having a heart attack or stroke, have a higher chance of being overweight, and be more likely to be involved in a homicide or suicide.
The nurse finishes her speech by telling this teenager about what to do if he sees someone else drinking. If you or someone else need help dealing with an alcohol addiction problem you should talk to your parents, doctor, or school counselor. To stay away from the temptation of alcohol try to avoid parties you know will have alcohol or come up with a getaway plan.
