Welcome

WELCOME

Worldwide some form of alcohol is the beverage of choice for many whether it be wine, beer or spirits. However one fact about alcohol is rarely told, more often ignored. Here’s the fact:

ALCOHOL IS A DRUG

Just like Cocaine and Cannabis, Alcohol has harmful effects and use by people our age (14-18) is on the rise. Alcohol is a depressant drug (that means it slows the body down) and is also psychoactive (that means it affects brain function).  Alcohol is addictive and a state of addiction is refered to as alcoholism, alcohol addiction, or alcohol dependence. The purpose of this site is to prevent (or at least decrease) the consumption of alcohol by young people because… ALCOHOL IS A DRUG!
