Alcohol Use among University Students: Incidence, Reasons, and Effects.
Owens, Shane Gregory; Roth, David; Schmelkin, Liora P.
In the recent past, research on binge drinking has focused on the incidence and reasons for drinking among college students. Students at a mid-sized suburban university answered questions regarding their alcohol consumption, their reasons for drinking, and the negative experiences that they had as a result of drinking. The results of this survey indicate that the surveyed students demonstrate the same pattern of binge drinking found in similar studies. Binge drinkers cite reasons for drinking related to socialization and anxiety more often than do non-binge drinkers. Binge drinkers also experience negative personal, physiological, and social effects of consuming alcohol more frequently than drinkers who do not binge. (Author)
