Underage Drinking

Affects of teenage drinking on girls


Teenage girls experiment with alcohol for many of the same reasons that boys do, but they face some challenges boys don’t:

  • Among teenage heavy drinkers (those having five or more drinks in a row at least five times in one month), girls are more likely to say that they drink to escape problems or to cope with frustration or anger.
  • Girls are more likely to drink because of family problems than because of peer pressure.
  • Drinking can delay puberty in girls, while abusing alcohol can cause endocrine disorders during puberty.
  • Teenage girls who drink are more likely to have unprotected sex than girls who doesn’t drink, putting them at increased risk of pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.

    Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to create
    a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a
    whole lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.
