This is an updated version of our original “Drugs and Alcohol 101” that William and Deborah Shooter published in 2010. They have always been concerned about the effects of drugs and alcohol use by their country’s teens and young adults. Both of them have spent many years trying to help young and young at heart drivers to improve their attitudes towards driving defensively and not aggressively. They wanted to write a book showing kids how important they are to society; how their young bodies are growing, especially their brains. Most importantly William and Deborah wanted to show them how dopamine and the natural feel-good drugs that their bodies produce need to be maintained in a drug-free body. The use of many drugs being used by teens today removes the ability for our bodies to produce those natural drugs leading to addictions and withdrawal from the society that wants them to survive as meaningful full members of their communities.
