An essential guide for all teenagers and children to discuss among themselves, showing them how to exercise control over alcohol and informing them of its effects and abuses.
Whether it is the torment of living in an alcoholic family or the peer pressure to take a few drinks at a party, alcohol and alcohol abuse have become the greatest concerns facing young people today. Now, here’s a handbook written by kids, for kids, that candidly examines the confusion that children may have about drinking. Some of the youngsters in the book are recovering alcoholics, many are children of alcoholics, but all share common qualms and questions about the role alcohol will play in their lives.
The issues raised here include:
• Living with an alcoholic
• Overcoming the peer pressure to drink
• Defining alcohol and what place it has in society
• Recognizing alcohol abuse in yourself or a family member
• Places to seek help if drinking becomes a problem

“This book should be required reading for every teenager, teacher, and parent in America.”—Dennis Wholey, author of The Courage to Change
