Binge-drinking teenagers at greater risk of violence

“…They found not only a link between drink and aggression but also that children who drank were more likely to be hit, even if they weren’t violent themselves.”

This makes sense to me. If as a teenager, the reason you drink 9 times out of 10 is because of popularity. In other words, because they want to seem “cool”. If you are willing to do what you know is wrong, you will probably not be able to stand up for yourself in a physically violent situation. I would dare to say that most teenage drinkers have passive personalities, so they will let people do what they want to them, because they don’t want to let them down.

This is just my opinion, feel free to disagree in the comments…
