conclusions
Conclusions
  • Findings show that frequent drunkenness in nightlife context is mainly related to male young people
  • Relationship problems, aggressiveness, illicit drug use, and deviant behaviours appeared to be commoner among nightclub goers who get drunk frequently than those who rarely or never get drunk
conclusions19
Conclusions
  • The fact that a great number of nightclub goers who get drunk frequently, adopt risk behaviours related to their sexual activity and driving may increases the risk of infectious diseases (e.g. AIDS/HIV) and car accidents
  • Considering that frequent drunkenness is closely associated to other risk behaviours which might result as a consequence of drinking excessively, prevention interventions towards reducing drunkenness incidents are considered to be necessary in recreational settings
