Binge Drinking Among College Students


❶College Binge Drinking and Violence According to the National Institute of Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse, binge drinking is a pattern of drinking alcohol that brings blood alcohol concentration to 0.

I believe that 21 is the perfect age for drinking alcohol, if anything don't lower it maybe we should raise it to 25 because then the students would be more mature and drink more responsibly then they would at a younger age. If that doesn't work then maybe we should discipline them for their actions. Because they are know young adults, we think just because they are in college that we should go easy on them but that's B.

If a kid under age that isn't in school gets caught with alcohol he goes to jail. So maybe we should do the same to the students. First time offence should be a large fine and some community service, and let's make them wear big yellow jump suits with the words of underage consumption on the back of it. The second time offence would result in expulsion. This would let the students know that we as adults our concerned with the kids binge drinking and the we are serious for it to stop or for them to face the consequences for their actions.

It returns the gaze to the fundamental causes for a predisposition for binge drinking mentioned in the previous section. If the student was drinking before college, than the problem is not solely an effect of being at college. The problem lies just as much, if not more, with the parenting of the child.

Teenage Binge Drinking Problem. Teenage binge drinking remains a prevalent problem in the United States. As teenagers learn to socialize and transition into adulthood, many may engage in drinking as a type of leisure pursuit. While social drinking contributes to teenage drinking, a large part of it falls under the category of binge drinking.

Binge drinking, especially heavy binge drinking can lead to development of alcohol use disorders. While anti-alcohol campaigns have been implemented in the past, some have failed to appeal to youth. This came because of not utilizing social media or including popular youth leaders in such campaigns. Beliefs surrounding binge drinking may be altered due to depression in teens. By examining the outcomes of focus groups and deciding on the messages that would be most effective to help discourage binge drinking, this paper hopes to create a framework from which an anti-binge drinking campaign could form.

Alcohol was a huge topic, and I needed to narrow it down and come up with something meaningful to research. As I looked at the different aspects of drinking habits, one issue kept resurfacing that drew my attention. That issue was the long-term effects of drinking on the individual. I was interested in binge drinking, as well as heavy drinking sustained over time. Although I could not come at this from a physiology or medical point-of-view, I did hope to address some of the medical issues that will arise when researching alcohol, such as liver damage and liver disease.

Ultimately, I developed a working research question I could use to guide my research and hone the issues. The research question I am currently using to conduct my research is, "How does alcohol as a whole affect the body in short- and…… [Read More]. Drinking in Favor of Increasing. This means that alcohol is made accessible to underage persons and in this way, they start consuming alcohol at a young age. It is for this reason that the legal drinking age should not be lowered, but actually increased to reduce the chances of it being made available to those who are underage.

Increasing the minimum legal drinking age to at least 25 years, like India, will go a long way in ensuring that underage drinking does not take place. Teenagers can be able to access alcohol with the help of their older friends and siblings who may be in college. This will ensure that only responsible adults will have access to alcohol.

There have also been cases of increased rates of binge drinking among college age youths and the increase in the minimum legal age for drinking will go a long way in helping preventing this Kypri et al.

Overlooked in many of these studies, though, is the fact that some people who categorize themselves as being one type of drinker compared to another may engage in other activities that are unhealthy from the outset for instance, beer drinkers may be more likely to also be tobacco users while others may engage in a wide range of healthy behaviors for example, wine drinkers may not be smokers and may job or exercise regularly.

As McGregor and his colleagues emphasize, "One inherent difficulty within these studies is that in the general population, drinkers distinguished as primarily wine, beer or spirits drinkers tend to differ in other important aspects.

This implied that drinking was a deliberate and conscious decision on their part. Heavy drinkers viewed their drinking as something negative in that they perceived themselves as having reduced control over it. Peer norms were also found to be an important predictor of drinking as a perceived norm and behavior, which supports drinking.
