What Happens When You Drink Underage

Drinking under the age of 18 can really impact your health. 

You will be a lot more vulnerable to the effects of alcohol due to your height, weight and the fact that your body hasn't fully developed yet.

You are also more likely to take risks, such as walking home alone at night whilst drunk, having unprotected sex, or drink driving.
