Drinking causes so much loss. You will never forgive yourslef if you lost a good boyfrien which you loved and then hurt him and broke uo family 

cheating is such a cheap thing and it all happened when you are drunk. You cant use the excuse but i was drubk because it doesn't change the fact that you cheated. you need to not drink and then you wont have that risk in the first place.

Katherine read's insight:

I think this is a horrible thing to happen because this happens all the time 
it is quite positive that she realises that it was so horrible and that she didn't want to drink much anymore. Sadly I think some people have to get really embarressed or have an impact for them to realise that alcohol is bad.

"We Used a Condom but the Condom Broke" - Share Your Story: What Went Wrong When I Got Drunk

Share your teenage drinking story and your reasons not to drink if you're a teen.
Katherine read's insight:

So many girls end up getting pregnent when they drink. it is such a horrible thing to go through pregnecy at age 16 when you are still at highschool. While everyone thinks its cool to drink they dont realise that you are no longer cool when you have become pregnent. Most girls dont realise how easily it is to get pregnent even if you have worn a condom and regeret so much. it is such a shame that so many people realise that its not a good idea to drink after they have experienced something horrible.

stephanie shalala's curator insight, May 19, 2013 2:50 AM

This is a story of someone who had sex at 16 while drunk. She now has a son who is 1 years old the dad ran away as soon as he heard she was pregnant. she now regrets how it happened and who it happened with. This is a major problem with underage drinking, there is a reason there is a age limit and consuming alcohol younger then 18 not only is it illegal but it leads to bad decision making such as unwanted teenage pregnancy so we have to be smart about it.

Katherine read's insight:

i think this is positive that this girl learnt that it wasn;t such a good idea to get drunk all the time because you can pay the price the next day or even during. i find it very scary that she didn't have any slef control and that anything could have happened to her. i would hate to have no control and run the risk of something happening late at night while im out.

Watch video on effect of alcohol abuse, addiction and alcoholism consequences through testimonials to Drug Free World from former alcoholics about effects of problem drinking including drunk driving, withdrawal and possibly lethal poisoning.
Katherine read's insight:

Samanther 

I think this story is a example of peer presure and that you should always do what you feel. If you feel that you do not want to drink, try and find the courage to say an excuse that could get you out of it.
you know your friends and what you might say to get out of it. I think peer presure is a horrible thing that occurs regulary with friends

most friends would know they are peer presuring you
or they just feel insucure and want you to be in the same boat as you so they could relate and feel more comfortable.
