Many teen comedy movies have one thing in common: A group of adolescents go to parties, binge drink and get into a bad situation they barely get away from. But teens should ask themselves whether the onscreen characters are acting epic or horrible.

Many distinctive factors may impact teens’ choices to drink alcohol, such as whether their friends drink. However, a recent study found that viewing a lot of movies that feature alcohol nearly doubles the risk that young teens will begin drinking. And it increases the risks that they will become addicted to alcohol.

Screen vs. Reality, Acting Epic or Horrible

Most films centered on teen partying and drinking glamorize the subject, making it appear that the wildest, most epic stuff will happen. On screen, it turns into a paramount escapade from which you safely return home with the story of a lifetime.

Real life is different when teens find look back and wonder whether the. are acting epic of horrible. Underage drinking, and particularly hitting the bottle hard, is not stylish or funny. It can often lead to behaviors that are disgusting and embarrassing. For example, throwing up in somebody’s car on the way home.

Also, the movies never show the monstrous aftereffects of the following morning. Far and away drinking in real life is more terrible, and can involve many risky choices such as driving while intoxicated.

Alcohol Featured on Purpose

Teens should always be aware of why certain things may be going on TV or in the films and become “media-wise.”

Whenever you see alcohol on screen, ask yourself why the movie makers put it there. Is it truthful to say that they are attempting to make you giggle and laugh? Do the circumstance make it appear “cool” and that “everyone’s doing it?”

Does seeing on-screen characters drinking alcohol make you more inclined to attempt it? Do you feel the same way if one of the characters smokes cigarettes?

Keep these questions in mind when you watch TV or movies so that you can make better choices in real life.
