Terri Hibbert, Katie McMurtrie Binge Drinking Underage Drinking Physical Effects Social Drinking Addiction Physical Effects Effects of Alcohol Underage Drinking Binge Drinking Social Drinking Addiction In 1999 underage drinking in the United States had an estimated cost of $52.8 billion annually.

In 2001 underage drinking in the US was estimated at $61.9 billion.

In 2001 underage drinking accounted for at least 16% of all alcohol sales, contributing to 3,170 deaths.

Social consequences for underage drinkers can include, reputational damage and self-esteem issues. When enough is enough Social Impact Statistics

The social aspects affected by binge drinking include:

•work/studies/employment prospects
•marriage/intimate relationship
•family relationships
•friendships/social life
•physical health

In a six-country research project, 39.8 % of men and 28.4% of women aged 18 to 23 agreed excessive alcohol consumption had a harmful effect on social aspects of their lives. Social drinking impacts society by means of:

• Social influence or conditioning
• Escalation to drunkenness

Social Drinking behaviors appear to vary between Cultures.

Countries like the UK, Scandinavia, US and Australia, alcohol is associated with anti-social behavior. When Enough is Enough Social Impact According to the Centres for Disease Control, alcoholism impacts:
• the workplace
• the home
• the lives beyond the person who suffers from the condition

America spends $22.5 billion annually in health care relating to alcohol addiction. “25% to 45% of all hospital patients nationwide are being treated for alcohol complications”.

“Health care costs related to alcohol abuse are not limited to the user. Children of alcoholics who are admitted to the hospital average 62% more hospital days and 29% longer stays”. Statistics References Conclusion The legal limit of alcohol for a person under the legal drinking age of 18 is zero. Underage drinkers are at risk of severe effects of alcohol as their brain and bodies are still developing. It is important to educate young people about the dangers of alcohol, even though it may not stop underage drinking. ‘Social drinking’ is drinking in moderation without the intent of getting drunk. They tend to drink the recommended alcohol intake or until they feel they have had enough. A standard drink contains 10 grams of pure alcohol. The label on an alcoholic drink will tell you how many standard drinks are in each container. Drinking in a responsible, safe and legal manner! ‘Binge drinking’ is the term used when a person drinks a large amount of alcohol over a short period of time with the intention of getting heavily intoxicated. The amount of alcohol that is needed to be consumed to get the desired effect is different for every person but the risks are the same. It is common for an alcoholic to be in denial that they have a problem and they are often unable to keep a limit of how much alcohol they consume. An alcoholic can overcome their addiction with counselling and rehabilitation. Presented by

Between 1992 and 2001 more than 31,000 deaths were attributed to risky or high risk alcohol consumption in Australia [The leading causes were alcoholic liver cirrhosis (6,825), road crash injury (5,489), cancer (2,874) and suicide (2,495)].

For healthy adults in general, heavy drinking means consuming more than the single-day or the weekly amounts listed above. About 1 in 4 people who drink above these levels already has alcohol dependence or alcohol abuse problems. Alcoholism is the term used for compulsive, uncontrollable consumption of alcohol. A person who has a problem with alcohol is referred to as an ‘alcoholic’.

It is estimated that one Australian teenager dies and 60 are hospitalised each week from alcohol related causes. In 2005-06, 15-19 year old males and females had the highest hospital separation rates for acute intoxication from alcohol of any age group (124 and 126 per 100,000 respectively). By the age of 14, 86% of young people have tried alcohol. Almost one in four young people aged 14-19 report consuming alcohol at risky levels for short term harm on a monthly or weekly basis, as defined by the 2001 NHMRC guidelines2 (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, 2008). On average one in four hospitalisations of 15 -25 year olds happen because of alcohol. Recent research has shown that 168,000 Australians between 12 and 17 have reported binge drinking or drinking at risky levels. In 2007-08, a higher proportion of men aged 18 years and over consumed alcohol in quantities at a risk or high risk to their long-term health, compared to women (15% compared to 12%, standardised for the age structure of the population). On average, young people have about 5 drinks on a single occasion, which can be considered binge drinking. Statistics Youth who drink are more likely
to carry out or be the victim of a physical or sexual assault. According to the 2008 Victorian Secondary School Student survey, 56 per cent of Victorian students aged between 12 and 17 describe themselves as non-drinkers. Another big group describe themselves as occasional drinkers (21 per cent), and less than one in five say they are ‘party drinkers' (18 per cent). In addition to the health risks, drinking may also impact your self–esteem and social life because you may find yourself doing things when you’re drunk that you wouldn't normally do if you were sober.
In fact, one in two Australians aged 15 – 17 who get drunk will do something they regret. A great deal of alcohol’s effect is actually the placebo effect. Victoria University in New Zealand convinced nearly 150 students that they were drinking vodka and tonic with limes, and watched the students partake and shows signs of intoxication. Social Impact
