Alcohol and teenagers

Nowadays a lot of under age teenagers are using alcohol. According to the data alcohol usage among 15-16 aged pupils since 2000th until 2006th has incredibly increased. In 2000 percent of boys and 1 percent of girls were using alcohol, in 2003 percent of boys and percent of girls were using alcohol and in 2006 percent of boys and percent of girls between ages 15 to 16 were using alcohol. I agree that nowadays alcoholism is widely spread in this age group and has become a serious problem. In many countries, underage drinking is a widespread problem with often serious consequences. Young people who drink are more likely to be the victims of violent crime, to be involved in alcohol-related traffic accidents, and to have depression and anxiety. Young people who start using alcohol before age of 18 are more likely to be involved in violent behaviors, attempt suicide, and develop alcohol problems in later life.
