Teen alcoholism has become common in the modern age.
There is almost no birthday celebration, going out, or even a regular gathering of young people on a local bench that does not end with someone getting drunk.
The trend of consuming alcoholic beverages is increasing year by year, while the age limit is decreasing. According to the World Health Organization, every fifth teenager in the world drinks excessively.
The situation is worrying in our country as well. More than 50 percent of young people occasionally drink alcohol, and 7 percent drink alcohol regularly. Believe it or not, many people have their first contact with a drink in their home, even before school age. Unfortunately, parents are not aware that alcoholism develops more quickly if contact occurs at an early age, and they often allow their children to sip wine or half a glass of beer at family celebrations and birthdays.
Since teenage alcoholism is, in most situations, just a springboard for the development of other forms of addiction in later years, luxury rehab clinic VIP Vorobiev draws your attention to signs that indicate a problem.
How to recognize teen alcoholism
Curiosity is a major driver for alcoholism in young people. The desire to feel powerful and prove themselves in company or to overcome shyness is cited as the key driver. Many try to recover from first love and other problems of young people with drinks, others imitate adults, while some are only bored. As alcohol is a nervous system depressant, it also serves to relieve stress and tension.
No matter what the reasons are, teenage alcoholism exhibits clear symptoms. It is manifested, first of all, by a change in behavior, from isolation from family through hanging out with friends who drink, to lying and hiding drinks in the room.
Characteristic signs are red eyes, slow movements, exhausted appearance, as well as problems with sleep and appetite. Then there is a decline in concentration and lagging behind in school and extracurricular activities, which has a negative effect on overall success.
Teen alcoholism often has fatal consequences
The effects of alcoholism on the physical and mental health of young people are very dangerous. In addition to problems with the skin and excess weight, over time drinks damage the stomach, pancreas, esophagus, pharynx and heart.
Numerous studies have confirmed that excessive alcohol consumption during adolescence has a negative effect on brain function in late years. In other words, it impairs balance, sense of touch, people become unable to control desires and emotions, and their cognitive functions drastically decline.
We should not forget that alcoholism in young people is the cause of many traffic accidents, many of which are fatal.
Namely, young people under the influence of alcohol are seven times more likely to be involved in a car accident and 11 times more likely to suffer injuries.
