  • 1. The Effects Of Binge Drinking
  • 2. How I Would Represent It
    I will be focusing on students, as it is mostly students that binge drink and the video will include clips of students drinking, so the audience will feel a sense of familiarity that they or their friends does the same.
    I will put some strong facts on the video to show the audience to be aware of binge drinking and to get my message across.
  • 3. What is binge drinking?
    Do you know what is binge drinking?
    Binge drinking is the heavy use of alcohol over a short period of time.
    For women that is more than 7 units in one session.
    For men that is more than 9 units in one session.
  • 4. The Facts
    These facts are what I am going to be putting on the video.
    I know I will not convince students to stop drinking, I am not trying to! I am only trying to make them be aware of drinking.
    We are students and I know for a fact that we like to drink, so just be extra careful when drinking!
  • 5. Each year 50,000 teenagers are admitted to hospital accident and emergency units with alcohol.

    Dangerous Falls

    heart attacks

  • 8. Twitter
    Binge Drinking is a very popular subject. It happens in the news. It’s everywhere.
    I can use Twitter to question people why they do binge drinking? The most common answer is ‘We enjoy it.’
    But they really know the true effects? I believe that they haven’t been warned enough about Binge Drinking…
    With Twitter I could find ways of communicating my project across as it’s about students and the audience will feel they want to talk about it as they feel familiar with the subject.
  • 9. Events
    I could set up a event that gathers people to go out and do something different.
    I can gather people who enjoys other things, such as sports, music and even a social gathering at a pub.
    This will show that people don’t have to binge drink to enjoy something. We want to show that there are many other things in life that they can enjoy…
    We want young adults to make most of their lives as a young adult. Life is out there for us to enjoy to cherish every moment we have. We do not want to throw it all away by drinking alcohol at a huge amount.
  • 10. Thank you and I hope you enjoyed the video.
