5 Reasons You should avoid drinking Alcohol before age 15

Lead author Dr Hui Hu from the University of Florida, said: 'Early onset of drinking and drunkenness are associated with alcohol use disorders and therefore may play a role in elevated alcohol use disorder-related mortality rates.'


1. Getting drunk before your 15th birthday nearly doubles your risk of an early death, new research reveals. Those who get inebriated at a young age are 47 percent more likely to die prematurely, a study found.

2. Researchers believe early drinking may increase a person's risk of suffering a life-threatening alcohol abuse disorder in later life.

3. Other experts add excessive alcohol-consumption at a young age can increase a person's 'risk-taking behavior' and lead to mental health issues.

4. Excessive drinking at a young age is thought to be linked to alcohol abuse in later life.  Dr Hu said: 'Early onset of drinking and drunkenness are associated with alcohol use disorders and therefore may play a role in elevated alcohol use disorder-related mortality rates.'

5. Early drunkenness may point to other factors such as risk-taking behavior, mental health issues or a lack of social or economic support that influences health and longevity.
