  1. Alcohol use beliefs and behaviors among high school students.

    Article - En anglais

    Purpose

    Data analyzed here are part of a larger lifestyle survey.

    Results

    Reasons stated most often for not drinking were « bad for health » and « upbringing, » while reasons stated most often for drinking were « enjoy it » and « to get in a party mood. » Student drinking patterns were significantly related to gender, ethnicity, grade, and the reported drinking habits of parents and friends.
