What's this all about?
In celebration of a quarter-century's worth of health-related questions, responses, and wonderful readers like you, the 25 Years of Questionable Behavior campaign aims to recognize the history of Go Ask Alice! as a resource to inform decisions about health and well-being — and have just a little bit of fun while doing it. Special features of this campaign include: big ol' milestones, interesting inquiries (aren't they all interesting?), tons of trends from days of yore, and more. You can check back regularly for more goodies and there'll be even more posted on social media (search for #25yearsofgoaskalice).
Hope you enjoy taking a ride on this memory lane train and learning along the way!
