I'll never forget the section where we learned about alcohol, and the effects on the brain. I have grown up in a household where both my parents drink, not in ridiculous quantities, but quite often. As soon as my sister turned of age, she also began drinking often. She has given me a hard time as to why I haven't began drinking yet, she feels that it is a major step in growing up. And my dad also seems to be quite depressed that he can't grab a drink with his son when the subject comes up. As well, being in college, I'm surrounded by people who go out drinking, and I get hassled as to why I don't drink. Learning what I did from this section reaffirmed my reasons for not doing so, and this will help me provide reasons to those who will try to pressure me, and will increase my confidence that they are simply wasting money on pungent tasting drinks. I will never forget this.
