Based on ethnographic research with 13-16-year-olds in a rural Danish community the article reports on strategies of harm minimization employed by teenage drinkers. Participating teenagers were more concerned about social than health risks. They preferred drinking in the company of peers whom they knew and trusted, and they helped each other to minimize harm. Hence, teenage peer groups may be considered a resource for health promotion.
