Question No 4 How old were you when you took alcohol for the first time? Most respondents reported age of onset as between 14 and 17 years of age. In this case no significant differences between being male or female, and only 7% said they had not taken alcohol before.

Question No 9 What limits your drinking? When asked about what limits their consumption of alcohol, 40% answers to get home without having an accident . This is evidence that they are aware of the danger that involves drinking and driving.
Question No 11 Have you used alcohol to change your mood? We also observed a gender gap when it comes to drinking to change their behaviour. Boys are more influenciable (almost 60% versus 30% of girls.)
Question No 13 Does it affect your drinking the presence of your teammates or the people around you?

Question No 38 Have you ever used alcohol in combination with other drugs? Finally, over 40% admit combining alcohol with other drugs. Here gender statistics are altered and are the girls who recognize being more involved in this practice.
