Alcohol has been a very dangerous vice since the mankind. People drink alcohol from different reasons, but the first and most important one is that alcohol is generally consumed at parties and with special occasions, when people want to have fun and to feel a little different, as if they had no concerns.
Still, the idea is the following: not only mature persons drink alcohol, but teenagers, both boys and girls, use it too. At parties, young people start by drinking something light, as to say, and little by little continue with stronger alcoholic drinks, until they can get very drank if they don't stop when they should. And the consequences of their state can be quite dangerous for the persons around: some drank people can begin to discuss with the ones around, can
address them bad and impolite words or they can even start fights.
Moreover, girls nowadays have started to consume alcohol, too because they consider themselves to be equal to boys and they want to feel the pleasures alcoholic drinks give. In countries like Italy, Spain, Germany or England, young girls use to drink a lot, and to get drank when they go out with friends. In fact, they don't even use to drink refreshing drinks when they go to a bar or a disco at weekends. There are cases when girls can be seen in an unworthy condition for a girl: they are so drank that they cannot walk by their own and they are helped by friends, even by their boyfriend who, surprisingly, hasn't drank alcohol. In such situations, girls should feel shame for their attitude, but they don't see things like that. From their point of view, this represents something tremendous, which offers fun, but which can turn into a bad habit. And when it has turned into a bad habit, it can lead to addiction, an illness which destroys many persons and their future.
All in all, I would say that I am not against alcoholic drinks when people know what their limits are. Adults can easily have a glass of wine at dinner, after a hard-work day, but not to spend half of their day drinking. And as for teenagers, nobody says that they are not allowed to drink alcohol. But they have to learn how to control it, and to have some when with friends and at parties, and not get drank each time they have the occasion.
