Help With Science Project? Increasing Trend of Alcohol, Drug and Smoking Abuse?

Question by Yuppy kid! =P Roxzzz….: Help with science project? increasing trend of alcohol, drug and smoking abuse?
I am supposed to complete this task by 25th June. I have done research on this.

Problem observed:
‘There is an increasing trend of smoking, drug abuse and alcohol abuse among young people in our society today,’

I need to find actual figures to support this statement. e.g charts and figures.
I have tried to find the increasing trend but the trend seems to be decreasing at least that’s what most sites state. Anyone can help me? I need an increase in smoking, drug abuse and alcohol abuse over theese few years. Must be updated. 2005, 2006 or 2007 surveys, polls or research.
i know there is a decreasing trend!!! But I ned evidence for an increasing trend….Oh and it can be from 2000-2007.
help me find either increasing or decreasing and i need figures and charts. MUST be of young people today.

    in the general popilation the use has decrease. But if you want to make it increase you will have to look at young kids. It is moving to younger and younger kids.
    I would say research the us goverment web pages the health department. Or local health dept. good luck and you may have to change your research.
    try this web page and hope it helps.

    —-I noticed after many years of heavy drinking…Now at night, it feels actually like there is a REAL water faucet running on my forehead. Water or sweat gets into my eyes. I think there’s? alcohol in it–stings my eyes. Could mean bad things happening to my liver and kidneys. I have no idea why I still love alcohol! I am sober now…..

  • karioka2 says:

    It can be clearlly seen that this is a dating site ?

  • jrjbobby says:

    What kills me is when a family member, “an enabler” that’s codependent says something like, “Well he doesn’t drink? as much as he used to” or “He’s cut down regarding his drinking.” I have had several alcoholics in my family. I have enough God-given sense to know there is no “cutting back” or “cutting down” etc. They are both in denial in those situations etc.

  • jrjbobby says:

    Know a guy that is an alcoholic, drinks several daily. He shakes so badly, routinely, he sometimes can’t hold a glass eating utensils. I really think it’s due to drinking daily and sometimes way too much. Thank goodness I rarely drink and could live without it without one problem. His wife actually serves drinks to? him at social functions and at home, her mother had been an alcoholic. She’s co-dependent and an “enabler” for sure. It’s different for sure…

    I salute? you doctor, thanks.

  • trickdaddyaz03 says:

    That is an ignorant thing to say to somebody who has spent more time trying to comprehend this disease than most people including alcoholics themselves. What if he posted a video and said to all the alcoholics out there “just stop drinking, its that? simple!”, only then would your comment be justified.

  • Necrotic89 says:

    Oh man, I went through that same thing. I ended up staying awake for three days and eventually? just going to the hospital. The scariest experience ever..
