  • Alcohol abuse is a repeated pattern of drinking that may result in harm to an individual's health, personal relationships, or reduces their ability to work.
  • Im young. Is drinking really that bad for my health? Yes. Studies have shown that alcohol use by youth and young adults increases the risk of both fatal and nonfatal injuries. Research has also shown that youth who use alcohol before age 15 are five times more likely to become alcohol dependent than adults who begin drinking at age 21. Other consequences of youth alcohol use include increased risky sexual behaviors, poor school performance, and increased risk of suicide and homicide.
