Question by Yuppy kid! =P Roxzzz….: Help with science project? increasing trend of alcohol, drug and smoking abuse?
I am supposed to complete this task by 25th June. I have done research on this.

Problem observed:
‘There is an increasing trend of smoking, drug abuse and alcohol abuse among young people in our society today,’

I need to find actual figures to support this statement. e.g charts and figures.
I have tried to find the increasing trend but the trend seems to be decreasing at least that’s what most sites state. Anyone can help me? I need an increase in smoking, drug abuse and alcohol abuse over theese few years. Must be updated. 2005, 2006 or 2007 surveys, polls or research.
