SA students have dangerous alcohol consumption habits - study

A study has found that South Africa's university students have dangerous alcohol consumption patterns.

The study, which was published in the South African Journal of Higher Education, also found that South Africans consume alcohol to release tension and maintain a feeling of excitement and joy.

702's Azania Mosaka encouraged callers to share their thoughts regarding the issue.

I picked up my drinking habits from varsity, it's okay to drink every day. We drink because we can, not because we're sad.

Thami, caller

You go to a party and come back at 6 o'clock in the morning. Can you imagine how many bottles you've been drinking?

Godfrey, caller
