Description
Why do people drink? What do people drink? What are the effects on the body from drinking? Why is twenty-one deemed to be the magic age when drinking is legal? What about binge drinking? Repected science author Margaret O. Hyde and Yale University School of Medicine physician John F. Setaro take a fresh approach to the problems of alcohol abuse among teens. Alcohol 101 looks at alcohol honestly and realistically, from medical and recreational uses by adults to the physical and mental ravages of binge drinking and alcohol dependency on the part of teens. the book covers alcohol's relationship to risky behaviors, driving, and sex. the authors' straightforward descriptions of the physical and social effects of alcohol are highly informative to teens making decisions about drinking. Eight million American teens have already decided to drink-and for four million of them alcohol has become a dependency. Special attention is given to how teens can cope in a world that seems awash with alcohol. a self test for alcohol dependency and a list of websites for organizations that can provide further informatino and assistance complete this practical, teen-friendly manual.
