Abstract

The Chief Medical Officer for England recommends that young people remain alcohol free until 18 years of age. This recommendation was accompanied by advice that young people under the age of 15 should abstain completely, but if those aged 15 to 17 years choose to consume alcohol, they should drink no more than once per week under adult supervision and the weekly quantity consumed should not exceed the daily adult daily limits of six units (Donaldson, 2009).
