The phenomenon binge drinking in west andalusia among young people

Isidro Marín Gutiérrez / Ramón González-Piñal Pacheco / Manuel García Palomo. pp. 683-690


“Botellón” is a really relevant social phenomenon created by youth to be performed during weekend nights, which has become a conflict of interests among young and adult people. Speaking about “botellón” was really popular among most important Spanish medias, mainly when that starts disturbing neighbours. But besides it has been written a lot about this subject, information is not really concentrated. There are barely social studies dealing with the problem. So the main aim of this paper is to analyse keys which explain and give it sense, so compare it with similar researches. It has been created a survey to be applied in the main “botellón” area in Huelva, and the findings were compared to two similar studies developed under the same method which provided similar results.
Keywords: “botellon”, alcohol, young people, binge drinking, nightlife, leisure
