ALL NIGHT DRINKING OR NOT, TEENAGE DRINKING WON'T GO AWAY

Dear Ed

Short conversation with a clean well dressed local young teenager.


I saw him looking at his grazed knuckles, so I asked who have you been fighting?

He answered: "Hit some young kid, got put in a cell overnight, I was drunk, didn't know what I was doing."

All night drinking or not, I feel that teenage drinking will not go away. A lot of it was started by the introduction of the alcopops or vodka and lemonade drinks.
