#7127 “Alcohol isn’t a drug. A cup of coffee will sober me up. I’m always a safe driver, even after a couple of beers.” These statements are only a few of the myths this video skewers as it explores:
- the history of alcohol
- the effects of alcohol on the body and the short- and long-term health impacts
- teenage attitudes toward alcohol and trends such as binge drinking
The video also examines the prevalence of alcohol in American culture and discusses alcoholism — how to identify it and how to treat it.
