After doing some research on alcohol I have come to the realization that alcohol is a disease that affects millions of lives everyday. In the following essay I will discuss some things that I have learned and I will try to give a clear understanding on what steps I will need to take to make appropriate choices in the future.

If you do choose to drink do it on safe grounds such as somebody's house or apartment. But even then it is still possible to get caught by the guard beings that you may be too intoxicated. So the best advice I could give someone is to sleep over a friend's house off campus somewhere and stay out of trouble with the school because in the long run you may regret...
