Underage drinking can make you act and look stupid. Alcohol can make you feel more social and daring, but it actually is a depressant that slows down parts of your brain. That’s why people who have been drinking behave in ways they never would while sober. Underage drinking makes you accident prone. Alcohol interferes with your vision, coordination, and concentration by acting as a sedative on your central nervous system. Nearly 190,000 12-to 20-year- olds wind up in an emergency room each year for alcohol-related problems. (The majority of those who do are male.)
Underage drinking can harm your brain. The human brain is not fully developed until the mid-20s. Drinking alcohol, as with other drugs, can interfere with brain development. Underage drinking kills. Every year, about 5,000 young people under age 21 die as a result from injuries caused by alcohol use. Underage drinking may cause depression or make it worse. Young people who feel depressed are more likely to drink alcohol, but alcohol is not a cure for depression. If you are depressed, ask an adult for help.
Mental confusion, stupor, coma, or person cannot be roused. Vomiting. Seizures. Slow breathing (fewer than eight breaths per minute). Irregular breathing ( 10 seconds or more between breaths). Hypothermia (low body temperature), bluish skin color, paleness.
If there is any suspicion of an alcohol overdose, call 911 for help. Don't try to guess the level of drunkenness. Know the danger signals. Do not wait for all symptoms to be present. Be aware that a person who has passed out may die.
Victim chokes on his or her own vomit. Breathing slows, becomes irregular, or stops. Heart beats irregularly or stops. Hypothermia (low body temperature). Hypoglycemia (too little blood sugar) leads to seizures. Untreated severe dehydration from vomiting can cause seizures, permanent brain damage, or death.
