Young People’s Street Drinking Behaviour:Investigating the Influence of Marketing & Subculture

Published: November 2008

The unsupervised nature of these locations and the products typically preferred by these individuals, have been linked to immodest consumption and an increased risk of alcohol-related harm. This qualitative study examined the street drinking behaviour of young adults (aged between 16 and 25).
