Usem inquired with 8.500 students how much alcohol, cigarettesand other drugs they consume. Data indicated that 1 out of 3students sharing a flat with peers would consume extraordinaryamounts of alcohol. An individual consumes extraordinary amounts ofalcohol if he/she drinks at least three glasses of beer/wine twicea week or more than seven glasses per month.
Among students living with their parents, only 1 out of 6students admitted to drinking at such levels. If a headache andother symptoms of becoming sick set in, 2/3 of these stay homerswould go straight to the doctor. For students living in sharedflats this is only the case for 50% of the people.
