Good morning my name is Minerva Gonzalez and I’m going to talk about and convince you why teenage alcoholism is such a dangerous disease and why this should be a MUST topicbetween teenagers and parents.
Alcoholism is known as a disabling addictive disorder which is characterized by compulsive and uncontrolled consumption of alcohol despite its negative effects on thedrinker's health, relationships, and social standing. Like other drug addictions, alcoholism is medically defined as a treatable disease so that’s why you should pay attention to every step and learn howto prevent it or at least learn how to help people with this addiction.
In this case im just going to talk about teenage alcoholism because is something that has been increasing during the years andit seems that the upcoming generations are not going to be the exception.
Alcohol is the most frequently drug used by adolescents and a 14% of teens who drink have been intoxicated at least once inthe past year, so maybe you have been there or you have seen this so many times that you don’t even think its relevant but actually it is.. because they are not just having “healthy” fun like people useto do before, they are really hurting themselves and destroying their bodies and minds little by little.
So you may think what are the dangerous effects of alcohol uses in teens? Well, thedangerous thing is that the younger a person is when they start drinking the possibilities of developing an alcohol disease is bigger but that’s not all because it has been proved that when teenagers drinkthey are more likely to have unprotected sex or even they are more exposed onto developing emotional problems like depression or anxiety.
If you know someone who is going on through something likethe things I mentioned before, stop a little bit and hear this advices so you can help them going on through this hard addiction or at least talk to their parents because you may think they know...
