Alcohol abuse is a big issue in the college world and in the real world. Alcohol consumption
happens in the age of 18-24 and in the real world it happens in the age of 12-54. Binge drinking
happens a lot more in college life because its considered part of a culture, to which it has
increased over the years. It all starts in the first 6 weeks of classes, because many students try to
fit on or make friends and they don’t want to be left out of the group. We will be talking about
how we can make the numbers decrease even more in our youth.
Alcohol drinking can cause many deaths, assaults and sexual assaults. According to an
article on ABC news in 1998 the death toll of alcohol related death was 1440 and in 2005 it
increased to 1825. 69600 students have reported that they have been assaulted by another
student, and 97000 students have reported that they have been sexually abused by another

disease deaths occurred and 49.5 percent involved alcohol. Among women, 28,834 liver disease
deaths occurred and 43.5 percent involved alcohol. Among all cirrhosis deaths in 2013, 47.9
percent were alcohol related. In 2009, alcohol-related liver disease was the primary cause of
almost 1 in 3 liver transplants in the United States. Drinking alcohol increases the risk of cancers

Also we would like to invite some guest speaker to speak to our students every three
months and keep them inform what alcohol can do them and how it can impact there life. The
guest speakers can be medics or anyone who has the experience with alcohol. I would also like
