s one thing to have a drink or two, but to drink to total intoxication, it never leads to
anything good. It leads to
hangovers, poor behavior, fights, anxiety
, promiscuity and unsafe sex (which can lead to a lot of other bad things), DUIs, accidents, injuries, etc etc.
You've recieved excellent advice above. When you go out with your friends, drink whatever you want, soda, coffee, whatever.
