What strategies can be put in place to reduce teen drinking?

kudakwashe's comment, June 15, 2015 3:51 AM
strategies such as making teens aware of drinking and the consequences and also making sure that teen/young children are brought up with drinking so that they are able to grow up understanding the consequences. As in some countries like France teens do not heavily drink as it is common for wine or beer to be around at the dinner table, because of this teens then do not binge drink as it is common to have that alcohol around this the temptation to binge drink or even drink heavily does no come into occurrence, as it is commonplace to do that. By introducing this it would most definitely reduce the numbers of teens drinking heavily and binge drinking because they have been brought up in that environment. This would be a great solution as NZ teens currently are not allowed to drink but at a certain age it is legal to drink therefore as there are no more restrictions on drinking it is literally a free-for-all. By making drinking a commonplace thing and removing that temptation of binge drinking and drinking heavily this would indeed majorly reduce the number of teens who do binge drink and drink heavily.
Carys Nolan's comment, June 24, 2015 5:28 AM
A strategy that can be put in place to reduce teen drinking is education. This could include educating young people on how to drink safely by minimising the effects of alcohol and making them aware of the bad consequences that they would have to face. Some of these simple but effective strategies that will definately pay off are; drinking water or soft drinks as well as alcohol, a good idea is to alternate, this will minimise the effects of the alcohol while still being able to enjoy it. Eating before you start drinking will allow your body to be able to absorbe the alcohol better and this will also minimise the effects and prevent you from becoming drunk so quickly and easily. On top of this, if you are drinking with some friends then you should all look out for and keep and eye on eachother. Some teens and other young adults may think it is cool to be drunk but if they are taught that it is not cool but socially unacceptable and that they will be looked down on for it not looked up upon, then hopefully this should make them have second thoughts before they make some bad desicions on how much they drink. They also need to be taught how dangeroud consuming large amounts can be; to the point where a good night out could be fatal. Being sensible should not stop you from having a good time but if people don't want to face the consequences then they should be more careful and cut back. You can still have a good time without having to be drunk in fact it will be even better because you will actually be able remember the night instead of being embarrassed by something you cant even remember doing but have been told about because you were drunk. I think education is one of the most effective strategies because as long as people know what they are getting themselves into then hopefully they will know to be sensible about it.

Great idea Rachael!  I will use this for 2.1. 

Rachael Dixon's curator insight, April 19, 2013 4:39 AM

Activity:

1. What determinants/factors influence sevens-goers to drink to excess? Write a paragraph that includes ideas for cultural, political, economic and social determinants.   

 

2. What implications arise from groups of sevens-goers drinking to excess? Think about consequences for personal well-being, relationships with others and the local community/whole of NZ society.

 

3. The organisers had rules (and police) in place to try and limit alcohol as well as providing the "chill-out zone". This relates to host responsibility, problem-limitation* and supply control*. Discuss how these actions could enhance well-being, but also their limitations.

 

4. Suggest alternative actions that could be taken to enhance well-being in relation to alcohol misuse at the sevens. Consider actions that SEEK TO ADDRESS the influencing factors from (1) above. These are likely to relate to demand reduction*.

 

*See the National Alcohol Strategy: http://www.ndp.govt.nz/moh.nsf/pagescm/576/$File/nationalalcoholstrategy.pdf ; or Chapter 3 of “Strengthening Community Action on Alcohol” from ALAC.
