Perception about Alcohol Consumption and Impacts of Alcohol Consumption of Adolescents in Sisaket Province
Adolescent alcohol consumption and impacts to individuals and society are a present problem in Thailand. To gather data for prevention and decrease of the problems, we conducted survey research. The purposes of the present study were 1) to study perceptions about adolescent alcohol consumption and impacts of alcohol consumption of adolescents in Sisaket Province, and 2) to compare the perception of impacts. Data were collected with a questionnaire. The questionnaire included demographic data, perceptions of adolescent alcohol consumption, perceptions of impacts of adolescent alcohol consumption, and perception of impacts of others about adolescent alcohol consumption. The samples were 245 students who studied in public middle schools in Sisaket Province. Data analysis included descriptive statistic, t-test, and F-test. The result showed that the majority of samples had seen adolescent alcohol consumption (93.1%), with a frequency of occasionally (36.2%). The means of the perception of impacts for adolescent alcohol consumption (Mean = 3.07 - 3.43, SD= 0.39 - 0.51) and for others of adolescent alcohol consumption (Mean = 3.33 - 3.34, SD= 0.44 - 0.51) had a high level. Moreover, only the mean of the perception of impacts for adolescent alcohol consumption was significantly different from different experience to see or not see adolescent alcohol consumption in the past year (p<.05). The findings showed that the perception of adolescent alcohol consumption was significantly different from the perception of experience to see adolescent alcohol consumption in past year. Health teams and school health instructors should use the findings to develop and design activities or programs for alcohol prevention and behavior among adolescents in the future.
