Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive


This research paper is about the ethnographic research of youth alcohol drinking culture in our society and it is associated with the unnecessary drinking habit.The interview is given by the person who has experienced the drinking habit.Although it is necessary to mention that there are no specific and pre-define universal rules about how researcher should behave during the situation when the participant has developed the habit of heavy alcohol addiction.It depends on the researcher to decide and respond to give the answer of raising questions and challenges from the ethical point of view.However, the outcomes of such studies is very helpful to understand the society culture with academic and research perspectives.But the authenticity of the research conclusion should represent the solution to that problem. “Our goal being touncover the conceptual structures that inform our subjects acts, the ‘said’ of social discourse, and to construct a system of analysis in whose terms what is generic to those structures, what belongs to them because they are what they are, will stand out against the other determinates of human behavior”.Clapp, 2007, 469-489; Hesse, 2008, p.1).According to the sociological point of view , drinking is considered as the communication practice.As majority of time alcohol serves in wedding party ,as ceremonial glass of celebration, pub crawl to develop the relation of communication with the same drinking society and  with other drinking groups. On the other side, alcohol is completely different from the other intoxicating materials .In the country where our research is conducted ,alcohol is slightly different from the other drugs as it is considered as legal and lawful. Although in various other countries such as Germany,Russia and U.K ,the youth alcohol drinking is supposed as deviant behavior.In this research ,alcohol behavior is condemned but the interaction and communication with the youth drinker is not violating rule of laws as here we have not investigated the minor age consumer of alcohol as our participant is in the legal age of drinking (Clapp, 2007, 469-489; Hesse, 2008, p.1).



The interview is non-descriptive in the sense that it allows the informant to formulate his own answers to questions without the interviewer influence. The goal is to establish the informant’s experience in his own words. The interview is also qualitative in nature hence, offering descriptive information from which to deduce an analysis and conclusion. The questions take on different structures according to their types experience questions, personal questions ,health and prevention questions.

Health and Prevention Questions

Mr. John :What are the main barriers to reduce the drinking in community?

The other possible method for habitual drinker is secondary prevention in which professionalscan guide them through comparing the life before drinking habit and the life during drinking habit. The other treatment from the professional can be the anti-depressant medicines. 

Mr. John :What you think the community understands the drinking problem?

Me:Yes, the community understand the drinking problem as the alcohol drinking issue is completely community regarding health problem. As community knows after drinking alcohol person lost his consciousness and can expectedly behave like a brutal.



It is analysis that the alcohol consumption is not just the habits or the way for the individual person to avoid the real world problems. “When their own norms are in contradiction with the dominant society’s norms, they may correct their behavior so as not to violate mainstream norms (at least not too openly). This all does not mean that they see their own norms as secondary. On the contrary, young people usually value their own group drinking norms more and appreciate people who do follow these norms” (Blackman and Shane, 2007, pp.699-716)

According to this research ,the young people often indulges because of relation with friend groups, work and family stress. In our culture, the alcohol parties is particularly celebrated for the special occasions as it makes people more emphasizing to connect with various group and enjoy irrespective of brutal attitudes.Researcher noticed that the young people is more interested to develop their social norms and follow their friends and social gathering.(Blackman and Shane, 2007, pp.699-716)
