Prevention/Treatment of Alcohol
1.) Don't give in to peer pressure! Firmly say "No" to alcohol.
2.) Don't start drinking in the first place! It isn't cool at all.
3.) Think about what would happen if you start drinking. Focus on the consequences of what would happen if you got intoxicated and caused someone or yourself harm.
If you're an alcoholic, ways you can treat it are:
1.) Counseling. Go to a counselor and talk about your addiction, they'll be able to help you get out of it.
2.) Set goals for yourself. For example, if you want to stop drinking COMPLETELY then set a goal for when you want to quit ( "I will stop drinking alcohol. My quit date is _______" ) or if you want to drink less, then set a goal for when you wont drink ( "I will not drink on weekdays/weekends/day" )
3.) Deal with your problems instead of drinking them away! The main reason people drink is because it helps them forget about problems they face. That isnt true AT ALL, it just makes it worse. If you have any problems, dont start drinking just to get rid of them, talk to somebody about them and they'll help you out.
