Drinking Young Creates Heavy Drinkers

A study out of St. Louis has found that people that drink before they are more likely to turn out to be binge drinkers. The study tracked the long-term drinking behavior of people who began consuming alcohol in the 1970s when the drinking age was 18 in many states. The study showed that states where the drinking age was once below 21, the people who did drink at a younger age were more likely to drink heavily.

This study once again raises the concerns about those on college campuses that start drinking underage. They are more likely to be binge drinkers and are more likely to create long-term heavy drinking habits such as alcoholism.
