You do have choices about using drugs or alcohol. Besides being illegal—DRUGS AND ALCOHOL ARE HABIT FORMING AND CAN KILL. There is no way to know in advance how drugs or alcohol will affect you. They can cause permanent damage – even if it is your first time.
If you or someone you care about has an alcohol or drug problem, it is important to get information about how to help them and how to help yourself. You may also want to talk about your feelings with someone who will listen — your parents, your school counselor, or someone who has special knowledge about alcoholism or chemical dependency.
In an emergency call 911.
