People see drinking all around them – at home, in restaurants, at family celebrations and on television and are naturally curious about alcohol and the way it affects people. You should always answer questions honestly, but you also should be prepared to initiate discussions about alcohol.
Some people say that because alcohol is a legal drug, it’s hard for them to think of it as being dangerous. Others say they find it difficult to talk about alcohol because they drink.

If you or someone you know has encountered social or legal problems as a result of using alcohol, help is available.
