Dangers of Alcohol

Have you ever had alcohol? I have not but my family and other people do. Did you know that alcohol makes you dizzy? You could fall over onto the ground and you could make your nose bleed. I hate it. Some people have a fridge full of alcohol. I feel like throwing it out. Alcohol makes you sick and drunk. Drinking is dangerous because you could die in a crash if you’re driving. No one might be around and the car might catch on fire. It is dangerous for kids because they have to watch adults drinking. I do not want to drink alcohol because it makes people drunk and then they do stupid things. Some drunken people may hurt themselves or others. They might get angry and have a bad temper. The next day they cannot remember what they did. Mums and dads may swear, fight or hit each other when they are drunk and this makes the children sad and scared. And when the children grow up they may also drink and do the same things their parents did. Drinking destroys people’s lives. Drinking kills. If you drink, stop and if you don’t, never start.
