Both early alcohol use and early intoxication can herald trouble for college students
Research shows that the earlier one drinks, the greater the chances of later alcohol-related problems. Researchers examined age at first drink (AFD) as well as drinking to intoxication among college students. Findings showed that both an early AFD and a quick progression to drinking to intoxication can lead to heavy drinking and problems during the years from high school through to college.
