Say no to alcohol and cigarettes.

Consumption habits in adolescents are increasingly growing. A high percent of them ingest alcoholic beverages and smoke cigarettes, whether or not they are aware of the damage it represents to their health. Some do not only do it by imitation of friends or family, for others it is already customary and repeatedly with the consent of the parents.

Currently in Güines as in other territories, an important group begins to smoke between the ages of 11 and 13 and begins to ingest liquids with alcohol, despite the sale of both products to those under 18 is not allowed.

Recent studies carried out by a multidisciplinary team from the Education and Public Health sector, among other organizations, confirm that the majority is also a significant group that begins the consumption of these substances between 14 and 15 years of age.

Are these boys and girls aware of the danger it causes to their health? Is it necessary so young to start with vices or harmful consumption habits? The answer is negative.

Even when inquiries on the subject corroborate that the male sex is the predominant one in the consumption of cigarettes and alcohol, a slight increase is also observed among girls.
