Recent Youth Risk Behavior Survey results released by Oklahoma State Department of Health show in 2005 more than 40 percent of high school students reported using alcohol within the previous 30 days. More than 26 percent reported binge drinking during the previous month, and more than one-fourth of all students reported they recently had ridden in a car with someone who was intoxicated.
MYTH #1: Alcohol is a stimulant.

FACT: Small amounts of alcohol may initially lower inhibitions, but it is a central nervous system depressant. The more you drink, the more your body slows down.

MYTH #2: Black coffee can sober up a drunken person.

FACT: It might keep them awake, but they're still drunk. Cold showers and fresh air don't work either. So what you end up with is a nervous, wide-awake drunk. Only time can get alcohol out of their system.
