Teen Drinking And Drug Use

  1. 1. Teen Drinking and Drug Use By Bobby Michienzi, Selina Runge
  2. 2. <ul><li>60.5% of teens who took this survey said most of their friends drink. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>This was one of the most diverse answered questions. </li></ul><ul><li>The amount that kids drink varies from never to daily. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>- 90% of kids said that they drink at parties </li></ul><ul><li>- 60% said at home </li></ul><ul><li>- And 40% said the woods is the cool place to drink. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>83.3% of us feel that drinking and drugs have an effect on our life in high school. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Again, 83.3% of teens feel that they are more likely to make a bad decision when they are not sober. </li></ul><ul><li>These include any decision you would regret making when you sober up, wheather it me violence, sex, or drama. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>One of the most surprising results is that only 44% of students would support the drinking age to be lowered to 18. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Nobody thought that drug use was more popular than drinking , but most people said that drinking and drug use are about equally as popular. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>More than three quarters of teens feel that teen drinking and drug use are more likely to do something sexual that they would regret when sober. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Teens feel that even if the drinking age is lowered that it would only have a small effect on the amount of drinking done by teens. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Here are some teens opinions: <ul><li>I think it's inevitable. People are going to drink and do what they want. I personally don't like drinking or would never do drugs. </li></ul><ul><li>What's the point? If you really think it's absolutely necessary to have (drugs and) alcohol in your life, at least wait till the most important years of high school and college are done with. I don't think most teens even really take the time to think about what they do, they just do it. And don't care because &quot;it's not a big deal&quot;. From personal and others experience, it's not a necessary thing at all in any way, shape, or form. Kids really need some self-reevaluation. </li></ul>
  12. 12. More Opinions <ul><li>I think that teens are misinformed on drugs and alcohol, and the whole idea of &quot;don't do it!&quot; isn't working. </li></ul><ul><li>It is always going to happen, you can't stop it. </li></ul><ul><li>As long as you can control yourself drinking is completely fine </li></ul><ul><li>Drinking is okay... but hugs not drugs </li></ul>
  13. 13. Stats from the SADD website: <ul><li>In 2005, about 10.8 million persons ages 12-20 (28.2% of this age group) reported drinking alcohol in the past month. Nearly 7.2 million (18.8%) were binge drinkers, and 2.3 million (6.0%) were heavy drinkers </li></ul><ul><li>Young adults ages 18-22 enrolled full-time in college were more likely than their peers not enrolled full time to use alcohol in the past month, to binge drink, and to drink heavily. </li></ul><ul><li>Three out of every four students (75%) have consumed alcohol (more than just a few sips) by the end of high school </li></ul><ul><li>About two fifths of students (41%) have consumed alcohol (more than just a few sips) by 8th grade. </li></ul><ul><li>Adults age 21 or older who had first used alcohol before age 21 were more likely than adults who had their first drink at age 21 or older to be classified with alcohol dependence or abuse (9.6% vs. 2.1%). </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.sadd.org/stats.htm#underage </li></ul>
