This is the 7th in a series of problems examining the current drinking habits and social life of young, British professional women. An article in the Dailymail intrigued me. I cannot seem to understand the rationale of the aberrant behavior of so many seemingly intelligent women.
As a counselor for both in-class and online 12 hour alcohol classes I discussed this subject with my class last night. Do you agree with the consensus – which they are partying because they want to enjoy themselves while they are still young? As reported in www.dailymail.co.uk.
Should these young women be worried that their continued binge drinking will have adverse long-term effects? The behavior of this group certainly would appall my grandmother.
Many of these women not only get very intoxicated, but live down to their reputation by doing embarrassingly stupid things like having unprotected sex with multiple partners and flashing their breasts for free alcohol.
Teenage girls are propositioning men old enough to be their father after down multiple shots of hard liquor. Does this sound OK to you? If you are a male between the ages of 18 and 50 it probably does (unless you have a daughter yourself).
These are not just single women out on the prowl. Many of these women are married or involved in serious relationships yet have no problem stepping out.
Would you recommend they take an alcohol class? Please let me know what your thoughts are on this topic.
