Dangers of Alcohol
The Xhosa ‘Dangers of Alcohol’ DVD lesson teaches that, although drinking alcohol is a common social activity, drinking too much and too often can cause serious harm to yourself and those around you.
The viewer is taught the effect too much alcohol has on the body as it can slowly damage the different organs and can cause death. It is particularly dangerous for pregnant women to drink alcohol as it can have an effect on their unborn childs health. The lesson teaches the dangers of trying to drive, operate machinery and look after children under the influence of alcohol as it slows down reactions and can cause someone to put their own life or others lives in danger. The viewer is taught the dangers of how alcohol can change a persons behaviour and cause violence or depression. The lesson teaches to drink alcohol in moderation as it is expensive and harmful to your health and can cause harm to those around you.
This DVD is for educators, groups and individuals and is part of a series of educational lessons in Xhosa on Addiction.
