Cheap Alcohol Taxing for Teenagers
Use of cheap alcohol is on a rise in Britain. The trend of having cheap alcohol is so much on trend that teenagers prefer having it than trying other pass time activities like going for cinema.
Recently, a survey has been done in which it has been revealed that teenagers are most affected by the same. In order to reach at the above given conclusion, the study researchers asked questions from 1,000 children, who were aged between 16 and 24 years.
The survey reports revealed that teenagers are drinking to get into the effect of booze. Moreover, offers like buy one get one tempts them for binge drinking. "We also know that our young people are more likely to have experienced being drunk by the age of 13 than their peers in almost any other European country", said Tom Smith, who is programme policy manager at Alcohol Concern.
He continued by saying that it is not the first time when it has been said that cheap alcohol is taxing for teenagers. It would not be wrong to say that the recent survey is just another addition to the reality that cheap alcohol is not all good and causes problems to one and all.
