  • Q. Are beer and wine "safer" than liquor? 
A. No. One 12-ounce beer has about as much alcohol as a 1.5-ounce shot of liquor, a 5-ounce glass of wine, or a wine cooler. Certain malt beverages, such as fortified beer, may have a higher alcohol content than others.

  • Q. Why can't teens drink if their parents can?A. Teen bodies are still developing and alcohol has a greater negative impact on their physical and mental well-being than on adults.

  • Q. How can I say no to alcohol? I'm afraid I won't fit in. 
A. Remember, you're in good company. The majority of teens don't drink alcohol. Also, it's not as hard to refuse as you might think. Try: "No thanks," "I don't drink," or "I'm not interested."
