In brief: Good sense

By definition, excessive drinking is not a good thing.
Adolescents respond to the activities of their peers probably more than any group and excessive drinking is most commonly a group activity in that age group. If an adolescent adopts moderation as the proper behavior - why more power to that person. It takes a significant degree of maturity.
