: Many factors are liable for motivating youngsters towards alcohol or drugs. The initial causes of motivation are curiosity, the need for adventure and excitement, experimentation. Some youngsters start consuming drugs and alcohol to beat negative emotions (such as stress, pressure, depression, frustration) and to excel in various fields. Several mediums like television, the internet, newspaper, movies, etc. are also responsible for promoting the idea of using alcohol for fun to the younger generation. Among these factors, reasons such as unstable and unsupportive family structures and peer pressure can also lead an individual to depend on drugs and alcohol. Preventive measures that work against addiction to alcohol and drugs too are given below:

 (a) Parents should motivate and try to increase the willpower of their children.

 (b) Parents should educate their children regarding the ill effects of alcohol. They should provide them with proper knowledge and counseling regarding the consequences of addiction to alcohol.

 (c) It’s the responsibility of the parent to discourage a toddler from experimenting with alcohol. Youngsters should be kept far away from the company of friends who consume drugs.

 (d) Children should be encouraged to devote their energy to other extra-curricular and recreational activities.

 (e) Proper professional and medical help should be provided to the child if sudden symptoms and depression and frustration are observed.
