About the Book

Teens have a tough time accepting the fact that they might be alcoholics, especially teenage boys. The Male Teenager’s Nine Early Signs of Alcoholism, the first book in the ALERT (Actual Learning Examples of Recognizing Trouble) series is informative and easy to read, providing examples of behaviors in teens that might indicate a potential drinking problem.

Drinking alcohol is very prevalent in our society. Yet many people still believe the stereotype of alcoholics as adults who are in chronic stage alcoholism. No one begins at chronic stage alcoholism; it takes time to get to that point. What’s more, each alcoholic in turn affects five to eight people—family, friends, and anyone else with whom they come in contact. Thus it is even more important to provide access to this valuable information to young people from as young as third grade and through high school and college, insuring they are fully aware of the root causes of alcoholism.

This guide fully explains the early signs of alcoholism in male teenagers and the steps that can be taken to get them help. By making this book available not only to teens but also to their parents, friends, relatives, neighbors, or anyone who may have a problem with alcohol, they can get help to beat teen alcoholism before it’s too late.
