14 Oct Educating Your Students on the Dangerous Effects of Alcoholism
Teachers around the world want to ensure that their students are well informed about drug and alcohol addiction. Often, pamphlets and magazines are passed around to students. These pamphlets can often educate your students about the harmful effects of drugs. The best way to preventing drug addiction and alcoholism is to educate.
According to the nih.gov website, nearly 60% of college students between the ages of 18 and 22 drink alcohol. Almost 40% say that they binge drink. Those are some startling statistics. Students often do not understand that binge drinking can actually kill you. Many college students do not know that by mixing alcohol with prescription medication can be lethal as well. Many celebrities are often in headlines because of their drug use.
Another reason why you should educate your students about alcoholism is because their grades will be affected. Often, poor grades are due to a student drinking alcohol or taking drugs. Many students feel peer pressure and often drink to just fit in.
Some books that you can give your students about the harmful effects of drinking alcohol are:
- Why You Drink and How to Stop: A Journey to Freedom by Veronica Valli
- Back to the Garden: An Alcoholics Journey Home by Anonymous
- Drinking: A Love Story by Caroline Knapp
- Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forget by Sarah Hepola
- I Need to Stop Drinking!: How to Stop Drinking and Get Back Your Self Respect
- Known Cures for Alcoholism & Other Drug Addictions by Dr. Ima Teetotaler
There are other books besides these that are perfect for your students. You will find in time that your students will appreciate the education that you are giving to them.
