Abstract

Educating teenagers about the risks of alcohol may be too late -many 12- and 13-year-olds have already started experimenting with it, and face increasing peer pressure to take risks. This article describes how a community alcohol team developed a programme for primary school alcohol education. The team believes that if healthy attitudes are established sufficiently early, the risks will be reduced, and harm-free drinking patterns will develop more quickly.
