People that do drugs or drink heavily can pass out and wake up in some random place and don’t know how they got there. They also probably have a bottle of beer in their hands or some marijuana. That is addiction. Millions of people are addicts to different things like alcohol, drugs and other things. They get drunk or high and lose control, and poof, next thing they know they are laying in the middle of the road or in an ambulance. Addiction can majorly affect your health. Addiction is the uncontrollable use of a mind- altering substance or behavior that harms your physical, mental and spiritual health.

Alcohol Advertising and Youth: A Measured Approach
August 13, 2012
The Center on Alcohol Marketing also known as “CAMY” has conducted research on alcohol advertising and our youth. CAMY was created to monitor alcohol company marketing practices in the U.S. The exposure to our youth is through television, radio, magazines and on the internet. The research shows that alcohol companies have deliberately placed advertising where our youth is exposed instead of gearing their advertising towards legal drinking adults.

World War 1 also supported for temperance it seemed unpatriotic to use corn, wheat and barley to make alcohol when soldiers overseas needed bread.
In 1919 the states then ratified the Eighteenth Amendment to the constitution, which was the banning of alcoholic beverages. It forbade the manufacture, distribution and sale of alcohol anywhere in the United States. This amendment had been passed largely on the strength of rural votes. Then congress passed the

Alcohol is a dangerous substance that many people find themselves associated with everyday. While some people will not have a problem with drinking alcohol and only do so on occasion, many more people struggle with alcohol abuse and addiction everyday.
There are many different definitions of alcohol abuse. It depends on what group you ask because each group will say something different. For example, to many students in high school and college, “heaving drinking that leads to vomiting [or blacking out] is not alcohol abuse but simply having a good time and being one of the gang”(1).

Alcohol fermentation is done by yeast and some kinds of bacteria.
These microorganisms convert sugars in ethyl alcohol and carbon dioxide.
Alcoholic fermentation begins after glucose enters the cell.
The glucose is broken down into pyruvic acid.
This pyruvic acid is then converted to CO2, ethanol, and energy for the cell.
Humans have long taken advantage of this process in making bread, beer, and wine.
In these three product the same microorganism is used: the common yeast or Saccharomyces Cerevisae
During the fermentation process of bread, sugar is converted into alcohol and carbon dioxide.

Should it be illegal for a pregnant woman to consume alcohol? Consider the legal and health ramifications of your answer.
Allow me to start by saying, that I am unequivocally against drinking alcohol while pregnant. There is no reason for a woman who is foreseeing having a newborn child or already pregnant to drink. Drinking while pregnant can cause many different defects to an unborn baby. Talking from an utilitarian point of view, I would say that she is doing harm to an anticipated individual.

Prohibition was intended to rid the world of the vices of alcohol, by outlawing its consumption and access to the common man. Alcoholism is defined as “a preoccupation with alcohol and impaired control over alcohol intake. Alcoholism is a chronic, often progressive disease. Left untreated, alcoholism can be fatal (Mayo Clinic, 2007).” Prohibition was a thirteen year experiment by the government of the United States to control the behavior and actions of the people. The results of this experiment were flagrantly negative due to poor planning and underachieving efforts on the part of the government to properly compensate for the efficiency and effectiveness of organized crime and bootleggers

There have been many regulations and laws introduced by the government to try and reduce the health risks that come with alcohol. One law in Canada is the “Last call” law which prohibits serving alcohol between certain times. In Ontario last call is at 2:00am, and alcohol may not be sold again until 11:00am. This is done to lower traffic accidents, violence, and alcohol related health problems. There are also strict regulations regarding minors and alcohol.

Individuals born prior to 1966 had the right to drink alcohol legally in the United States at the age of 18. In 1984 the United States changed its legal drinking age from 18 to 21. The legal drinking age in the United States of America should be lowered from the age of 21 to the age 18. Americans today are mature enough at the age of 18 to drink responsibly. Lowering the drinking age from 21 to 18 will have a positive outcome for American society.

In discussing the difference between abuse and substance use disorder one must first look at the definitions of both. Abuse is considered the overindulgence in or dependence on an addictive substance, especially alcohol or drugs. However, substance abuse disorder is a condition in which the use of one or more substances leads to a clinically significant impairment or distress to an individual. One can abuse alcohol or drugs and not become addicted, however SUD’s are generally seen in addiction of drugs or alcohol.
