Tampa, FL – August 2009 – There is a lot of talk about drugs in the world – on the streets, at school, on the Internet and TV. But what about alcohol? Is it really a drug? After all, it is legal, it is a part of social life and is even recommended by some doctors as healthy in small quantities.

 In surveys conducted by the Foundation for a Drug-Free World, alcohol came up at the top of the list of substances youth said they are most likely to use and they consider as a problem. Because it takes so many young lives (more than all other drugs combined), it is the substance parents are the most worried about.
Alcohol is a drug.
It is classed as a depressant, meaning that it slows down vital functions – resulting in slurred speech, unsteady movement, disturbed perceptions and inability to react quickly.
