One night of fun…A lifetime of consequences


By: Amber Elvis

Ok, let’s talk about teen drinking. As everyone knows, just about every teen likes to go to parties. When someone goes to a teen party, more likely than not there’s going to be alcohol; there’s no ifs, ands, or buts about that. Well, I mean unless you going to a Christian party, which most kids today wouldn’t even show up to. They are looking for fun and when there is fun, there is trouble, point blank. You always have that one redneck standing by the fire that’s going to offer you a beer. If it were me, I wouldn’t be able to say no because I would be trying to look cool. There are always consequences to trying to look cool though. Most parties get busted, so cops are often involved. Underage drinking is against the law, and everyone knows that, so the question is who wants to get a ticket. Most people usually stay the night at the party because they can’t drive, but you always have those few people that just leave, which isn’t a good idea because they could easily get in a wreck and kill themselves or others. Are these consequences worth one night of fun, yeah probably not, your future is important.
