Over 80% of the Australian population, 14 years and over, have used alcohol in the past 12 months. If tablets have a mark on them, you know they are safe. I understand what the term “binge drinking” means. Alcohol can be particularly dangerous, even lethal, when taken with certain medications. There is no safe level of alcohol use for young people under the age of 18. There is more alcohol in a standard drink of spirits eg. bourbon, than in a standard drink of beer. Alcohol is a stimulant that makes people feel more wide awake. You can do things to sober up more quickly. It is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to drink alcohol. Male and female bodies digest and process alcohol T differently.

I would accept a lift from a person who had been drinking a lot. It’s OK for young people to drink alcohol as long as they are doing it safely. People my age need alcohol to have a good time at parties.

iv. v. vi.

Drug and alcohol education should aim to stop young people from drinking or using drugs. Young people can enjoy alcohol without getting drunk. I feel confident in my knowledge and understanding about the effects of drug and alcohol use. I feel confident about being able to make safe decisions when it comes to drug and alcohol use.
