Transcript BOOZE CONTROL By Alexandra Kuchik One drink, two drinks, three drinks...When is it one to many? It is not uncommon to have a few drinks at football games, parties and at the Den Bar after class, but learning when to stop can be the difference between a good time and a lifetime of regret. According to a study by Columbia University's National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse, alcohol is the No. 1 drug of choice for teenagers in the United States. By their senior year in high school, 80 percent of teenagers have tried alcohol, compared with 47 percent who had experimented with marijuana and 29 percent who had tried another illegal drug. The American Psychiatric Association defines alcohol abuse as "repeated use despite recurrent adverse consequences." Those consequences may involve anything from drunk driving to liver damage, alcohol poisoning and even death. "It's unrealistic to expect kids not to drink after a certain age," creative writing senior Mariah Kizer said. "So ! think efforts should be focused on encouraging moderation of drinking and perhaps designated driving." The mainstream media has played a big role in the increase of alcohol abuse among young adults. The constant coverage of drunken celebrities and reality stars can be confusing to students as to what is cool and acceptable and what is harmful. "It is ridiculous to promote these movie stars and their drinking habits. It seems the more they get into trouble, the more they are glamorized," English senior Cecilee Haywood said. Starlets such as Paris Hilton, Lindsey Lohan and Nicole Richie, all of whom have had problems with alcohol and drug abuse, and shows like MTVs "the Jersey Shore" celebrate drunken and promiscuous behavior, rather than promote a healthy lifestyle. "People think they can get away with drinking and driving because people like Lindsay Lohan are elusive to any real consequences," public relations sophomore Stephanie Gomez said. "However, I think most people drink and drive because they did it before and they never get caught. Personally the thought of sharing the road with an impaired driver terrifies me." Most agree that moderation rather than abstincance is the key. And the University offers free drug and alcohol abuse information, counseling, assistance and services to all students and faculty that suffer from substance and alcohol abuse. The dorms at Greek Park at Bayou Oaks also work to promote safety while drinking by implementing a program called "Sober Sisters and Brothers," in which members volunteer to stay home on weekend nights in case a sober driver is needed. So while alcohol will remain a permanent fixture of college life, increasingly prominent programs that promote safe drinking on college campuses will hopefully keep many alcohol users from becoming abusers.
