Abstract [en]

This master essay is about teenagers, alcohol and the preventing measures taken by the Swedish government. Consequences of the rising consumption of alcohol among adolescents and how to prevent dangerous alcohol consumption in the future is one of the most prioritized issues in the Swedish society today. Today there is no prevention that clearly shows any effect on teenager’s alcohol consumption and the education about the dangerous effect of alcohol is clearly not the same in schools around Sweden. To gain knowledge about how teenagers view their own consumption of alcohol we have used the Grounded Theory. This means that you collect all data from field studies. We have used questionnaire and group interviews with teenagers to collect data but we have also studied other researches about this topic. All information that we have gained from field studies generated more and more questions and theories that we try to enlighten in our research finding and then discuss in our analysis. To consume alcohol is dependent of culture; adolescents imitate adults when it comes to behavior, customs and the pattern of alcohol consumption. We can conclude that alcohol prevention needs to change focus since it is not working. Instead of only targeting teenagers the prevention program should also include adults. If you can influence adults, parents and other groups in society that may influence teenagers to change their attitude and behavior towards alcohol, then we can hope for a change in the attitude among adolescents.
