This document is the seventh volume in a series of eight "question and answer" booklets developed in Kyrgyzstan by UNICEF and the GTZ. Similar booklets have been initially developed by GTZ in Tanzania and then adapted to different countries. The present series consists of an adaptation to the needs and cultural context of Kyrgyzstan, based on a survey realized among Kyrgyz adolescents. It is designed to provide young people with the necessary knowledge to make healthy choices for themselves and their peers. The series contain basic facts about human physiology and reproduction, sexuality, prevention of unwanted pregnancies, HIV/STIs, drugs & alcohol. This seventh volume deals with 33 questions about smoking, alcohol and drugs. Some of the questions asked are the following: "What are psychoactive substances?", "What sort of drugs do people use in Kyrgyzstan?", "Why do I want to smoke?",...The answers vary on length but all provide clear and precise information on the matter.
