  • Im young. Is drinking really that bad for my health? Yes. Studies have shown that alcohol use by youth and young adults increases the risk of both fatal and nonfatal injuries. Research has also shown that youth who use alcohol before age 15 are five times more likely to become alcohol dependent than adults who begin drinking at age 21. Other consequences of youth alcohol use include increased risky sexual behaviors, poor school performance, and increased risk of suicide and homicide.
  • During 2008, over 25% of all emergency room admissions, over 33% of all suicides, and more that 50% of all domestic violence incidents were alcohol related, according to the most recently available government statistics.
  • How does alcohol affect a person? Alcohol affects every organ in the body. It is a central nervous system depressant that is rapidly absorbed from the stomach and small intestine into the bloodstream. Alcohol is metabolized in the liver by enzymes; however, the liver can only metabolize a small amount of alcohol at a time, leaving the excess alcohol to circulate throughout the body. The intensity of the effect of alcohol on the body is directly related to the amount consumed.
  • Increased drinking increases your tolerance, requiring more alcohol to cause the same previous effect. The type and concentration of the alcohol that is consumed can affect the rate of intoxication and metabolism.
