Young blamed for binge-drinking
[Posted: Mon 19/11/2007 www.irishhealth.com]
The Irish public believes that young people have only themselves to blame for in binge-drinking in their age cohort.
We asked Irishhealth.com visitors who they thought was principally to blame for binge-drinking among young people.
Sixty-three per cent placed the blame with young people themselves; only 4% identified publicans, while one in 12 (8%) blamed the drinks industry.
However, 25% of those who took part in the poll believed that parents should take the responsibility for their children's binge-drinking.
