Problems with Drinking - College Drinking Games can be the Start of Lifelong Addiction Reveals Linwood Group
Date:11/19/2008

Research by Linwood Group into problems with drinking experienced by UK students shows that there is a link between student binge drinking games and lifelong alcohol addiction.

London (PRWEB) November 19, 2008 -- Linwood Group research reveals that for students playing drinking games the stakes may be higher than they think. The parents of a Warwick University student, who died in 2006 after drinking half a litre of vodka in 20 minutes for a bet, recently called for urgent action over the 'drinking game' culture in our universities. Back in February, Exeter University announced a ban on all student society initiation ceremonies after a first-year student drank himself to death at the start of the 2006/2007 academic year.

For many new students at UK colleges and universities, freshers' week is a time to have fun, make friends and, in many cases, to drink to excess. In fact, it's safe to say that binge drinking is viewed as 'the norm' at British universities and a large proportion of the undergraduate population appear to be willing participants in the drinking games that are organised as an introduction to college life.

The long-term risks are equally grave, says Sue Allchurch, research director. "What many students don't realise is that they may develop bad habits early on that will stay with them or the rest of their student days and into their subsequent careers. This kind of drinking pattern can quickly spiral out of control and lead to alcohol addiction," she warns.

Students should not be fooled into thinking that, as long as they're careful about drinking too much during the week, a 'session' on a Friday or Saturday night does not constitute a problem. In fact, she says, that kind of drinking
