In city centre Manchester you do see a lot of it, not that all students are like that. The ones living down here in South Manchester and use the local pubs are by and large very well behaved and an asset. I think it's more prevelant amongst 1st year students who have been let off the leash, so to speak, for the first time in their lives. Most learn during their second year when they have to move out of student accomodation and find their own digs that they can't afford to drink like that.
In the printed version what struck me was the fact that she would drink a bottle of vodka and a bottle of wine beore going out at least 4 days a week. I work full time and I can't afford to shell out that much dosh on booze! Not that I would want to if I could.
being a black hack taxi driver in glasgow i see both sides of this, in the 20 years i have been doing this job i have seen more students gettin out there face on nights out. but have also picked up a lot of students who treat a night out as a night out and dont get plastered , my big worrie tho is this since casinos have relaxed the dress code in glasgow i now pick up students at 6.00am drunk and have lost all there money and now that casinos have cash dispensers in there premeses i have came accross some sad cases, this has only happend in the last year here and i worrie now about there future.more so as my son is now a student
So it does, I need to clean my glasses! Even so, still a large amount of alcohol by anyone's standards! I would love to see what her gamma gt and ast blood results reveal, not good I imagine! I would hazard that she already has a fair amount of liver damage.
She'll need all the luck she can get if she's to survive into her 30's without serious health problems. Liver damage will occur, and she's also significantly increasing her chances of getting breast cancer. She already has an increased chance of suffering a heart attack or stroke.
Over the past 25 years alcohol-related deaths among women have increased 16-fold.
