Eight teens die everyday in DUI ( drinking under the influence ) crashes. At all levels of blood alcohol content ( BAC ), the risk of being in a car is greater for teens than older driver. Teens tend to underestimate or not recognize dangerous situations (“Designed by Black Crow Studio,” 2018). Most teens crashes happen on the weekends. Teens are more likely to speed, run red lights, make illegal turns, ride with intoxicated drivers, and even drive after using alcohol or drugs (“Designed by Black Crow Studio,” 2018). Drinking stimulates certain parts of your body. Waking up the next morning after a long night of drinking is a good reason to start drinking again. The throbbing headaches and stomach churning feeling is enough to drive anyone crazy. With just another beer, it could be hours before you walk straight again. Repeated drinking episodes with after effects will eventually lead to interesting internal issues. It could lead to having brain issues and a liver that cannot function properly. You will know you fall into this category when you can’t even spell your own name. Alcohol’s effects over life are constant. Drunk driving is not only a devastating issue to families and friends but it also cost the public a lot of money. As you can see, we need to do something about the dangers of drunk driving. I have heard of measures taken to put an end to this, such as ignition interlock device which requires drivers that have been charged with drunk driving to have this installed in their cars. The ignition interlock device requires the drivers to blow into the machine to read their alcohol level and if it is above normal limits the vehicle will not start (Gorman, 2018). The dangers of drunk driving will influence them to make unnecessary risk that could end their lives, but might also ruin the other lives of the families involved in the accident. Overall today’s society teenagers are becoming and acting more like adults. Teens are already at high risk when they are sober behind the wheel, so why not add a few beers or bottle of alcohol to the equation. Driving under the influence is just asking for more trouble. You could ruin your life, and the lives of your friends and family or other families lives. I don’t know about you but I value my life in many different ways. When you feel your life is coming to end due to the effects of alcohol do not freak out because you will have known you lived life to its fullest. I hope that you now understand all the benefits that come from being an alcoholic. Please drink for yourself, because beer isn’t just for breakfast anymore.
