Use science to convince teens a sober prom is better, AAAS says
Date:5/20/2009

n London says that almost a fifth of 12-13 year olds and more than a quarter of 14-15 year olds reported damaging or destroying things after drinking.

  • They May Get Really Sick Who wants to spend prom night throwing up or so dizzy that he or she can't dance? Alcohol can irritate the stomach causing dehydration which often leads to vomiting and dizziness. Throwing up also may be a sign of alcohol poisoning, which causes body systems to break down and requires immediate medical care. That's a good way to ruin everyone's night.

  • They May Feel Horrible for the Next Couple of Days Even small amounts of alcohol can cause a hangover which can lead to thirst, dizziness and lightheadedness. Headaches caused by blood vessel expansion and sleepiness due to narcotic effects on the central nervous system are other symptoms of a hangover. Your teen may have to forgo events scheduled for the next day or two while trying to get better.

    "A time of year that's supposed to be fun for parents and kids can turn ugly quickly," says Shirley Malcom, head of Education and Human Resources at AAAS. "Alcohol-free means a lot less drama."
