The article mentions that events such as a prom can lead to unwanted sexually activity, drug and alcohol usage. This article talks about the decision-making, which can help you, avoid the things you don't want to happen such as travelling in large groups and avoid staying in hotel rooms and having sleepovers. This is exactly what we have been discussing in class. I should look into Australian articles on unwanted sex, drugs and alcohol.

This article talks about how the Australian culture is pretty much alcohol. Alcohol abuse is costing Australians $36 billion a year. It is mentioned if you don't get drunk at a party you are considered abnormal in the Australian culture. This relates to the amount of binge drinking in our society and the peer pressure that goes with not drinking.

This article tells me that people are sick of the young age violence due the consumption of alcohol. The article also mentions alcohol violence is more dire for females than men. Woman when drunk are targets of unwanted sexual advances which means unprotected sex risking STI's. The positive side for females are we are more likely to look after each other when out at night. This is great to what we have been studying in class. In this article it involves wise decisions teens should make and just binge drinking in general.
