Alcohol has been the most popular drink on the world; about 2 billion people worldwide consume alcoholic drinks. Although, it is now know that alcohol can cause a considerable burden of death, disease and injury around the world, drinking alcohol is still common and the consumption of alcohol still increases in many group of age and many countries. The issues of alcohol seem to be heightened in young people. People, who are 18 to 29 year of age, are more likely to drink and take risk. They also get more dangerous behaviour than older drinkers. Because brain of young people is still developing, drinking alcohol during this time that damage the brain and lead to health complication later in life. In the previous research of the attitudes and behaviours on Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education 2012, it found that about 72% of the population age 18 and more believe Australians have a problem with alcohol. A large proportion of them thought serious problem was road traffic accident, and follow that was violence. Moreover, people, who are 18-19 year of age, are more likely to drink alcohol at home (39%) than somewhere else. Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education 2012study also found that spirits were the most popular alcohol, which were chosen by young people (67%). What is more, the second most common drink was bottled wine (49%). In addition, women were significantly more likely than men to consume bottled wine. In contrast, men were much higher than women to drink beer. Little research has been done to compare patterns of alcohol consumption among Australian, who are 14-29 years old, but the previous research has not selected enough information about overseas students. The main purpose of this research is to find out the problems of drinking alcohol, also they look at most popular type and location of alcohol consumption. These will find out differences and similarities with the drinking alcohol among overseas student of Australian. Methodology 3

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
