Here is a website that gives the younger crowd some information about alcohol prevention. The site is called The Cool Spot and let me tell you, it has a catchy ring to it. The site’s quote is “The young teens place for info on alcohol and resisting peer pressure.”

What is your knowledge about the percentage of middle schooled youth who are drinking? Many of us think its way too much and some think it’s none at all.

You can test your knowledge on the quizzes they have. There are also some fun facts! The site also gives you quick but real useful tips on how to say NO to peer pressure. “You have the right to say no, the right not to give a reason why, and the right to just walk away from a situation,” as it says on the page.

If you want to learn more about real life situations go to “The Cool Spot” and let the cartoon life take you to reality.
