alcohol, drinking habits, liquor, teenagers


Teens believe that drinking increases their self-confidence and resolves conflicts. Alcohol may impair cognitive processes, render individuals unconscious, or cause them to misbehave. The purpose of this research is to understand better the drinking habits of adolescents in Motoling Satu Village. The descriptive qualitative technique was utilized in this study. The study subjects were early adolescents who were interviewed in-depth or through Cross Check. The study's findings indicate that the research participants were between the ages of 12 and 15. The majority of study participants said that they first consumed alcohol in seventh grade. However, some use alcohol for the first time when still in primary school's sixth grade. At the Poskamling, the youngster was imbibing booze. The findings indicated that most study participants were aware that alcohol was an intoxicating beverage and that they consumed it on average once every two weeks, although it might also be once a week. Moreover, one can easily consume 1-2 bottles of wine while drinking. The researchers propose that we address adolescents who have a drinking problem by educating the public, consumers, and sellers about the risks of alcohol use.
