How Many Teens Are Drinking?
Tuesday, November 15, 2016- By Admin Comments (0)
Alcohol is the most frequently used and abused drug among teens. The law may prohibit people from drinking before they reach 21 years old, but in reality, it’s not too difficult for teens to find a way to get alcohol. They look at alcohol advertisements and even how your family may interact with alcohol as an example and believe drinking will allow them to have fun, seem cool and is a way to connect with peers.Now this is one the most dangerous cancer spread amond indian society.A survey reveal that kids from age 12 starts drinking alcoholic contents.How ever Indian there is strict rule not to avail alcohol content to minors below 21 but if we concider the % among the drunkards it is terrifieing factor.

The reason why I selected to write this article is today is a news on todays paper about two teens were drown to death .While I read news I noticed that they were only 17 and eighteen . This lead me to think about a news which happened in my own village .But the news came in news paper was a false one.
The real story happen in newspaper was someting deferent.But there was a celebration happen in a nearby school.It was time 8 PM lately Some of them decided to run away from celebrations to make some more interesting things.The group shared some money and purchased a bottle.The students were not in uniform dress of school .They used some casual dress collected in their school bag for this purpose.They started drinking on the banks of a river.Some of neibouring people noticed and thought about the anti socials drink to make distarb to them.So these people called POLICE.The POLICE arrived and started ran away.But two boys ran towards the direction of river and drawned.No body noticed this.Parents started search for their child but next day bodies were found on banks of river.But for the sake of the dignity of school and the family the public read the news as 

Two boys drawned in river while they were swimming

We are not able to blame them in a way because there are social pressure in their life too becuse where ever they look they see only kinds of elder people drink.what ever they see on TV and advertisings and cinema they see everybody drinks.So naturally they will be curious about what may be behind of these drinking habit.At first this curiosity pressurise them to make a false decition to make a group drinking course.
       Drinking alcohol is so pervasive in our society, it’s easy to forget how dangerous the substance can be. Car crashes are the leading cause of death for teens and 25% of them involve a teen driver who was drinking underage. One of every three emergency room visits in the U.S. are related to alcohol, and nearly a third of these involve kids under 21. In 2010 alone, there were nearly 189,000 alcohol-related ER visits for underage drinkers.

It’s plastered across billboards, magazine ads, in between TV shows and on city buses — advertisements for alcohol have increased by 400% in the last 40 years. Social media influence has ensured that these ads now reach just about all age groups.

The reality is that — with high school and middle school alcohol statistics proving this — young people are drinking alcohol. And it’s not hard to see why. The legal drinking age in the U.S. is still 21, but teens around the country have little difficulty accessing alcohol — whether from friends, relatives, parties or right from the kitchen when you aren’t home. The scope of underage drinking reflects this popularity and the ease with which young people get their hands on bottles and cans of booze.
Here are some facts about underage drinking in the United States:

35% of 15-year-olds have consumed alcohol in their lifetime
10% of 8th graders drank some amount of alcohol in the past 30 days
35% of high school students drank some amount of alcohol in the past 30 days
68% of 12th graders have tried alcohol at least once
8.7 million people aged 12–20 consumed alcohol in the past month
People aged 12–20 drink 11% of all alcohol consumed
52% of 10th graders believe it’s easy to obtain alcohol
Underage Binge Drinking Stats
On average, a teen drinks more alcohol in a single sitting than adults do. This is a problem known as “binge drinking” (or consuming an excessive amount over a short period of time). This is often the case for a many college underclassmen and a large percentage of high schoolers who drink at parties and social events. The excitement of drinking, mixed with peer pressure and an overabundance of alcoholic beverages, can cause kids to drink excessively and get dangerously inebriated.

High school binge drinking statistics include:

1 in 6 teens binge drinks
Only 1% of parents believe their teen binge drinks
21% of high school students binge drank within the past 30 days
90% of alcohol consumed by teens involves binge drinking
4,300 underage deaths are caused by excessive drinking each year
189,000 ER visits in 2010 were related to underage drinking
In 2013, approximately 1.4 million people aged 12–20 engaged in heavy drinking, which is consuming 5 drinks or more on at least 5 occasions over the span of a month.

Underage Drunk Driving Statistics
Among the more harrowing teen drinking stats is how many teenagers die in alcohol-related accidents each year: upwards of 1500. Car crashes are the leading cause of death among American teens, and many are influenced by alcohol.

The list of impairments caused by alcohol intoxication is a long one, including affected motor functions, slowed reaction time, blurry vision and distorted perception.

Alcohol can also cause “blackouts” — a complete unawareness of one’s surroundings or actions. An overly drunk teen may not remember how their night ended. In all too many cases, they wake up in the hospital after a car accident — or don’t wake up at all — and seriously injure unsuspecting passengers, people in other cars, or pedestrians.

Underage drinking and driving facts include:

Teens drink and drive approximately 2.4 million times a month
1 in 5 teen drivers involved in fatal crashes have alcohol in their system
85% of high schoolers who drink and drink say they binge drank
In the past 30 days, 22% of high schoolers rode with a driver who’d been drinking
Kids who start drinking young are 7 times more likely to be in an alcohol-related crash
Other Risks of Teenage Drinking
Death from a car accident, alcohol poisoning or other scenarios related to intoxication (e.g. falls, burns, drowning) is a possibility each time your teen decides to drink. But the spectrum of risks related to underage drinking is extremely wide, and in short, it can impact their young life in just about any way you can imagine.

Along with the significant impact of alcohol on the brain, risks and effects of alcohol on teens include:

Mental health problems
Serious injury or other disabilities
Abuse of other drugs
Unplanned pregnancy
Social difficulties
Being arrested
Being victims of physical or sexual assault
Problems in school are common in kids who abuse alcohol. High school students who drink are 5 times more likely to drop out of school — if they don’t choose to drop out, falling grades or getting caught with alcohol can end in suspension or expulsion. Even if they remain in school, drinking alcohol will likely cause your teen to lose friends, have relationship issues and possibly become social outcasts.

These problems can easily trickle down into their home life. If your son or daughter struggles with drinking, you may find soon enough that they’re not the same person they once were. Talk about alcohol addiction with them and consider getting them professional help if they need it.

Teen Alcohol Abuse Facts
Research shows that most teens try alcohol before any other addictive substance like tobacco or drugs. Teen alcohol abuse statistics are staggering. Every month, more than 35% of high schoolers drink some amount of alcohol. Among 8th graders, 28% say it’s easy to get alcohol when they want it. The number jumps to 52% by the time they’re in the 10th grade and to 63% when they’re high school seniors.
