“Appeal To Vanity To Stop Young Girls Binge Drinking”

Written 2 months ago by Newsroom

An Offaly psychotherapist believes young girls would binge drink less if they knew how bad it made them look.

A new study from the Lancet shows Ireland has one of the highest rate of binge drinking teenage girls in the world at 61%.

Adolescent girls in Denmark and Finland were the only ones to drink more.

Birr’s Stella O’Malley believes appealing to girls’ vanity would reduce the problem.
