Social Norms of Drinking Alcohol

Why it's a problem that underage drinking is normal

The Problem:

Alcohol is not only a drug, but is the most commonly abused substance in the world, and college students all over the Country. At any college you go to, it's socially normal to drink and abuse alcohol if you're below the drinking age. This "Social Norm of Alcohol" creates many problems for the student. More than you realize...


Humans are beings filled with imperfection. We will never be able to completely solve a problem, no matter what that problem is. There is a step we can take to get a little closer though. Realization is the key here. You need to find friends who don’t pressure them into drinking. Once people realize this, we can solve the issue of drinking being a social norm.
