This article is about how binge drinking can harm students and teenagers learning. A new study shows that binge drinking may impair memory in young people after the hangover has worn off. Most of the reason of why teens drink in the first place is because of peer pressure and what they do to try and 'fit in' with everyone else around them.

This article is about how fewer people are giving birth now than in the 1970's because of the improvements in sex education, availability of contraception and access to abortion. I believe that its great to have improvements in these type of things because of teenage pregnancy and because most teenagers wouldn't be able to take care of a baby on their own.

This article is about why Teenagers drink alcohol and what they find so good about it. Alcohol is a powerful drug and it changes how you feel. Many teenagers drink just because their friends drink and they think its the 'cool' thing to do or they do it just to 'chill out'. It is recommended that you consider talking to an adult or a school councillor if you have problems with alcohol.

This article is about how one teenager is dead and another has been charged with his murder after an alcohol-fuelled argument. Police alleged that they were drinking at a house in NSW and a fight broke out and the younger man suffered stab wounds.
Alcohol is a very dangerous drug when it is used and abused too much by teenagers. There are tragic events that can occur due to alcohol.
