There are many factors in a persons life that may cause them to make many bad decisions about the way they drink alcohol.
We see and hear stories about teenagers being victims of some kind because of alcohol. They are either drinking and end up doing something crazy or they encounter a drunk driver and become a victim of a drunk driving hit and run. We see way too much of the sad stories everyday.
