It is very important to feel confident in who you are and to honor your body, by staying cognizant of healthy choices and refusing to self-inflict habits that are detrimental to your livelihood. If you are not confident and determined to live your best life now, you won’t stand up for yourself and say no to the things in life that causes a risk and danger to you and others…like underage drinking and binging on alcohol.
An alcoholic is not the image of the old drunkard, slumped against the wall on the street – this widespread crisis is running through our society and impacting youth in epic proportions. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), there are over 10 million teens who report drinking alcohol regularly.
