Alcohol Drinking and sexual risks

"It could be the ugliest person in the world," Veronica says. "Someone we wouldn't think twice about, if we were sober, but we'd go to bed with if we were high or intoxicated."

When young people first hear this they often laugh. They know it is so true.

Parents, on the other hand, hear the quote and gasp. Veronica's bluntness makes them feel uncomfortable. It makes it more difficult to deny that alcohol use affects their kids' decisions.

The truth is, parents and teens often both refuse to admit that bad things can happen when young people drink.
