Title:Factors associated with alcohol consumption, problematic dinking, and related consequences among high school students in Taiwan
This research aims at describing the prediction factors associated with alcohol consumption, problematic drinking and related consequences among high school students in Taiwan. The study surveyed a random selection of 4 high schools in Taiwan with 779 samples from the 10th grade students. Survey material was acquired from students' self reports and analyzed by using the method of logistic regression. The results show that the negative outcome of alcohol consumption and problematic drinking to male adolescents is 2.2 to 2.7 folds greater than to female adolescents. Parents and peer groups are the major factors on alcohol consumption, and the influence could be enhanced particularly by the drinking behaviors of father and peer groups and their relationship with peer group. The probability for developing adolescent problematic drinking is 4 folds higher when the fathers were alcoholics. Ethnic culture seems to have notable impact on problematic drinking. The occurrence of intoxication for aboriginal adolescents was 2.98 times higher than the Hans, indicating diverse drinking habits, social norms, and expectancy for alcohol drinking. In addition, it is likely that peer group drinking behaviors have a remarkable influence on adolescents. Therefore, it is suggested that the policy for preventing campus from alcohol abuse should start with correcting the paradox of problematic drinking for earning recognition from peer group. Lack of family supports is also responsible for causing drinking-related negative consequences.
