Tackling Binge Drinking

  1. 1. The Effects Of Binge Drinking<br />
  2. 2. How I Would Represent It<br />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.<br />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.<br />
  3. 3. What is binge drinking?<br />Do you know what is binge drinking?<br />Binge drinking is the heavy use of alcohol over a short period of time. <br />For women that is more than 7 units in one session. <br />For men that is more than 9 units in one session.<br />
  4. 4. The Facts<br />These facts are what I am going to be putting on the video. <br />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. <br />We are students and I know for a fact that we like to drink, so just be extra careful when drinking!<br />
  5. 5. Each year 50,000 teenagers are admitted to hospital accident and emergency units with alcohol. <br />Shocking Facts<br />Alcohol has caused 50-70,000 deaths per year. <br />
  6. 6. Short termEffects<br />Memory Loss<br />Hangovers<br />Headaches<br />Car accidents<br />65% of suicides<br />have been<br />linked to binge<br />drinking<br />Dangerous Falls<br />
  7. 7. Shakiness<br />Vomiting<br />Increases risk of<br />heart attacks <br />Unsafe or unwanted sex<br />Bad Skin<br />
  8. 8. Twitter<br />Binge Drinking is a very popular subject. It happens in the news. It’s everywhere. <br />I can use Twitter to question people why they do binge drinking? The most common answer is ‘We enjoy it.’ <br />But they really know the true effects? I believe that they haven’t been warned enough about Binge Drinking…<br />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.<br />
  9. 9. Events<br />I could set up a event that gathers people to go out and do something different.<br />I can gather people who enjoys other things, such as sports, music and even a social gathering at a pub. <br />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…<br />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. <br />
