Each April, the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Inc. (NCADD) sponsors NCADD Alcohol Awareness Month. This year the NCADD is highlighting a devastating public health problem: underage drinking. Every year, more than 6,500 Americans younger than 21 years die from alcohol-related accidents, while thousands more are injured. Research shows that the earlier someone starts using alcohol, the greater the risk for future addiction. Youth who start drinking alcohol before age 15 years are 5 times more likely to develop alcohol addictions than those who wait to imbibe until they are 21 years or older. What about you? When did you have your first drink?
