FACTS

It's not just us saying it! It's real science!

  • Be part of the movement and spread the the word! Alcohol, cigarette, and illicit drug use is down among 8th, 10th, and 12th graders.

  • Alcohol can make you clumsy and slur your speech, make you feel sick, and make you throw up.

  • The memories you make in middle and high school will be some of the best of your life! Make sure you can remember them the next day and for years to come. When it comes to drinking, "teens are more likely to suffer blackouts, memory loss, and... cause damage to their ability to remember things in the future."

  • Avoid embarrassing tagged photos on social media by choosing not to drink or do drugs at parties. Alcohol makes you do things you wouldn’t normally do, and the pictures will never go away. Don’t let one choice haunt you forever.

  • Making the choice to not drink can help you have clearer skin, fresher breath, and make it easier to maintain your current weight because “alcohol can cause acne breakouts, give you bad breath, and make you gain weight.”

Kentucky Medical Amnesty Law: If someone needs medical attention at a party, or anywhere where there is underage drinking taking place, those who call to report the medical emergency are protected under this law and will not get in trouble for their actions.
