Alcohol Abuse Among College Students and Possible Solutions




Alcohol Abuse Among College Students and Possible Solutions

Abstract
Binge or excessive drinking is the most serious problem affecting social life, health, and
education on college campuses today including the campus of Georgia Southern University.
Binge or excessive drinking by college students has become a social phenomena in which
college students do not acknowledge the health risks that are involved with their
excessive drinking habits. Furthermore college students do not know enough about alcohol
in general and what exactly it does to the body or they do not pay attention to the
information given to them. There needs to be a complete saturation on the campus of
Georgia Southern University and surrounding areas, including businesses and the media,
expressing how excessive drinking is not attractive and not socially accepted.














Alcohol Abuse Among College Students and Possible Solutions
One of the biggest problems with educational institutions in the United States is alcohol
abuse among college students. College students across the United States including Georgia
Southern University end up missing class, having unprotected sex, damaging property, and
getting injured as a result of abusing alcohol. Also the health risks involved with binge
or excessive drinking is very prevalent and risky for any college student who chooses to
abuse alcohol. Besides alcohol poisoning, there are many cancers and diseases associated
with alcohol abuse that ultimately lead to death. Liver cancer, breast cancer, and skin
cancer can all be associated with alcohol abuse (Drinking: A Students Guide, 2001). Also
heart and liver disease can be associated with alcohol abuse (Drinking: A Students Guide,
2001). Ultimately the over all wellness among Colleges and Universities in the United
States drops dramatically when alcohol is abused. The abuse of alcohol among college
students has a direct correlation to socialization (Mendelson, 2000, p.13). Students who
go to college believe that binge or excessive drinking is a social norm. That when you go
off to college it's time to not only get a degree, but also a time to drink and socialize
at parties. In the end, alcohol is glamorized and often enough abused. Ultimately alcohol
becomes so much of a social norm that students do not realize how and when alcohol is
abusive. Therefore the problem is how to inform students in a socially acceptable manner
of how and when alcohol becomes abusive to their own well being. This reports seeks to
explore all aspects of alcohol abuse related to college students through definitions and
statistical problems of alcohol abuse in hopes of ultimately providing solutions to
increasing the wellness at Georgia Southern University.

There are many definitions associated with alcohol and alcohol abuse in general that need
to be clarified. Most college students think of alcohol as that cheap high they get to
obtain on the weekends at social events called parties. Knowing what alcohol really is and
what exactly it can do to your body in excessive amounts over time and in any one sitting
is one of the main problems with why college students abuse alcohol. The social norm of
binge or excessive drinking in college is prevailing over the social fact of what alcohol
really is and what it can do to a person’s health! The actual definition of alcohol is a
“liquid distilled product of fermented fruits, grains, and vegetables used as a solvent,
antiseptic and sedative” (Drinking: A students Guide, 2001). The possible effects of
alcohol would include intoxication, sensory alteration, and anxiety reduction. Symptoms of
overdose would include staggering, loss of coordination, slurred speech, dilated pupils,
and nerve and liver damage. Indications of possible misuse would include confusion,
disorientation, convulsions, shock, drowsiness, respiratory depression, and possible death
(Drinking: A students Guide, 2001). Now any logical person not affected by some social
norm and peer pressure would not give in to drinking such an antiseptic. Most college
students will say they know what alcohol can do to them, but they continue to drink
excessively because it’s the social norm. Furthermore college students are confused as to
what is considered alcohol abuse and simply alcoholism.

The confusion between the definitions of alcohol abuse and alcoholism leads to many
misconceptions or myths among college students about alcoholics. College students who
abuse alcohol seem to be able to drink excessively each and every weekend and consider
themselves not to be alcoholics or not in endanger of becoming alcoholics. College
students who are binge or excessive drinkers are able to avoid being labeled an alcoholic
because it’s so socially acceptable in college to drink and drink often. The distinction
is that “when drinking begins to interfere with any aspect of a person’s life it’s
considered alcohol abuse. And when drinking becomes addictive, either psychologically or
physically, it’s considered alcoholism. Alcohol abuse, if left untreated, can very easily
progress into alcoholism” (Drinking: A Students Guide, 2001). In response to this fact
most college students come up with the myth that people who are morally weak or have
emotional problems are the ones who can become alcoholics. Whereas the truth is that
“studies show there are no particular personality traits that cause alcoholism to occur.
What’s important is how much and how often someone drinks, not what kind of person they
are” (Drinking: A Students Guide, 2001). Ultimately college students are setting
themselves up to become the alcoholics of the future because they drink when their
depressed, stressed about school work, and to simply have a so called good time. College
students who abuse alcohol seem to find or have every reason to drink than not to drink.
Again the typical college student who always finds a reason to drink is accepted socially
and that makes everything just fine. The social acceptance of drinking alcohol in college
statistically makes alcohol abuse among college students one of the biggest problems among
educational institutions in the United States.

Statistically alcohol has caused a wealth of misfortune and death across the United States
just among college students. “According to the Core Institute, an organization that
surveys college drinking practices, 300,000 of today’s college students will eventually
die of alcohol-related causes such as drunk driving accidents, cirrhosis of the liver,
various cancers, and heart disease” (The college Experience, 2001). Drunk driving
accidents is probably the biggest cause of deaths among the 300,000 college students that
will eventually die because “drinking and driving has been reported by 60% of college men
and 50% of college women who are binge drinkers” (The College Experience, 2001). Also “75%
of male students and 55% of female students involved in acquaintance rape had been
drinking at the time” (Drinking: A Students Guide, 2001). “Between 75% and 90% of all
violence on campuses is alcohol related” (Marcus, 2000, p. 53). “Alcohol is a factor in
66% of student suicides and 60% of all sexually-transmitted diseases” (Marcus, 2000, p.
53). Besides just misfortunes and deaths among college students who abuse alcohol there is
plenty of academic statistics that shows how alcohol affects a student’s performance in

  • Drinking Age
    Drinking Age Drinking Age Why has America had so many problems with underage drinking? I think that there is way too much underage drinking by young adults in America. On the other hand, I don’t believe that it is their fault. I feel, that the lawmakers should lower the drinking age. The National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1986 forces states to enforce the legal age of 21 years old or lose matching highway funds. Alcohol has been around since the beginning of time and its not going to disappear

    Racism If there is one thing that the OJ Simpson trial will be remembered for, it is the racial polarization felt by all who have an opinion of the trial. Even though the trial itself was a farce, it does say something about where we are today as an American culture. It seems as though the racial divide is growing ever wider in our culture. Terms such as African-American or Irish-American are only helping to expand separation based on ethnic background. Just the fact that people insist on being

    Education and Egalitarianism in America The American educator Horace Mann once said: "As an apple is not in any proper sense an apple until it is ripe, so a human being is not in any proper sense a human being until he is educated." Education is the process through which people endeavor to pass along to their children their hard-won wisdom and their aspirations for a better world. This process begins shortly after birth, as parents seek to train the infant to behave as their culture demands. The

In Hellenistic times women were becoming more a part of society yet still played the part of the subservient wife

This new way of thinking on justice and love for knowledge establi
