New Study That Small Amount of Teenagers Drinks on a Regular Basis

A Trading Standards survey study found that smaller amount of teenagers are drinking on a regular basis - to a certain extent because it is becoming harder for youngsters to get hold of alcohol. Those who never drink at all have go up from 12% in 2005 to 17% in the latest research. Those who drink on a regular basis - at least once a week - cut down from 50% to 44%. On the other hand a third of those who do drink do so to excess and of those half confess to becoming aggressive while drunk.

The percentages of schoolchildren aged between 14 and 17 who purchase their own alcohol go down from 40% in the 2005 poll to 28%. The Trading Standards Institute which planned the survey in the north-west of England said the results indicated a regime of more dynamic policing of under-age alcohol sales was starting to work.

Professor Mark Bellis Director of the Centre for Public Health said: "It is very encouraging that we have seen such a remarkable drop in kids buying their own alcohol. "But improved parameters of under-age sales now need to be coordinated by a culture change that will stop those children from wanting to buy alcohol in the first place and thats something were still not seeing."

Nearly 30% of those polled were managing to gain and drink sufficient alcohol to be classified as overindulge drinkers - getting through five or more drinks in one sitting. Just over a quarter of binge drinkers said they had been in a car with a young person who had been drinking and just over a fifth said they had guilt having sex while drunk.

The 2005 survey did not study binge drinking and so no figures existed for comparison but specialists say there is no proof to indicate the problem is getting worse.

This years survey also uncover that nearly 50% who drank alcohol declared they drank at home when parents were in or at functions with family and friends. Prior this year the charity Alcohol Concern called for the a ction of parents who gave alcohol to children yet a consequent study found those who drank with parental regulation were less likely to connect in binge drinking.
