It is normal that young people want to experiment and take chances in life.
Drinking alcohol can increase your likelihood of risky behaviour. Don’t turn your night into a nightmare - get the right advice.
Young people tell us:
- it’s hard not to when all your friends are drinking
- I worry about my friends' excessive drinking after school
- there is always someone who can buy alcohol for us
- my friend had his phone stolen when he was drunk
- hangovers are awful
