Thinking About Drinking.
Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Washington, DC.
This pamphlet was prepared for young people as a basis for discussion of attitudes about drinking. It reflects the latest findings in alcohol research and has been reviewed by many professionals and students. It examines basic statistics, sizes up individual attitudes about drinking, reviews experts' opinions on teenage drinking habits. The pamphlet offers a "Quiz Yourself" chapter in an attempt to help young people separate fact from myth and half-truths on the subject of alcohol. The section on "Handling Your Own Drinking or Nondrinking" deals with how to feel comfortable with a choice not to drink, or, if an adolescent chooses to drink, when, how, and how much. Answers to the quiz and additional facts about alcohol, including why people react differently when they drink, complete the discussion. (Author/PC)
