Why You Shouldn't Drink

This can get you arrested. People who don't regularly drink have trouble with school. Your nervous system gets affected by this so it makes you do stupid things you wouldn't normally do. This includes, throwing up or peeing on themselves, having unprotected sex, and getting into car accidents. People who drink heavily risk damaging their organs like the liver, heart, and brain.

No one wants to risk feeling rejected by their friends or left out. Different strategies for turning down alcohol work for different people. Excuses like these could make it easier to say no, "I'm not into drinking." or "I have a big game tomorrow." or even "My uncle died from drinking." If you go to a party where you know there will be alcohol, come up with a strategy to leave with a friend. Such as planing a trip to the movies, the mall, a concert or a sports event.
