ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

The successful completion of this study would not have been possible without the guidance of my teacher who guided me every step of the way also the co-operation of a number of students of my school.

INTRODUCTION
Alcohol is a social drug which is classed as a depressant, meaning that it slows down vital functions resulting in slurred speech, unsteady movement, disturbed perceptions and an inability to react quickly. It affects the mind in such a way that it reduces a person’s ability to think rationally and distorts his or her judgment. Since alcohol consumption is legal persons tend to absorb great quantities, without considering the consequences, which this action may bring. Most times, several automobile accidents occurred are as a result of the over usage of alcohol and alcoholic beverages.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Are the students in my school are consuming alcoholic beverages? If so what are these beverages? To what level do they drink/consume these alcoholic drinks? Where do they buy and how do they afford to buy them?

METHOD OF INVESTIGATION
The method of investigation I am using is a questionnaire by random selection. The questionnaire serves as a tool for collecting because there are advantages: * It requires only a few minutes to complete

* It can be done at the convenience of the person required to have it completed. * It gives confidentiality since respondents are not required to put their names. INSTRUMENT USED TO COLLECT DATA

QUESTIONAIRE
Dear Student,
This is a survey being carried out at the Montserrat Secondary School to determine the quantity and type of alcohol/alcoholic beverages consumed by my fellow students. This is being conducted as an assignment for a Social Studies course I am presently pursuing. √


You are advised to answer the following questions honestly and truthfully. Since you do not have to write your names anywhere, no one will ever know who answered in a particular way. Remember this is not a test. There is no right or wrong answers. Most of the questions can be answered by a check in a box like this √ . Specific instructions are given where necessary. Thanking you

Yours sincerely,
C.Dyer
