RESPONSIBLE DRINKING SURVEY
In the United States we do not have a consensus as to what constitutes responsible drinking
behavior. This leads to controversy and confusion regarding the definition of problem drinking
and standards for responsible drinking.
Please rank each of the following examples into one of three categories: Less than
responsible (LR); Responsible (R); and Very Responsible (VR). Discuss each ranking
within your group.
1.______Sheryl and Jim enjoy each others company a lot, and sometimes they like to go out
dancing at a bar. When they drink, Sheryl usually reaches her limit of three or four beers before
Jim, but she does not like to refuse Jim’s offer of another round.
2.______Jackie, who recently moved off campus, loves to throw parties for her friends. There’s
always good food and plenty of beer and wine, but she also serves non-alcoholic beverages for
those who choose not to drink.
3.______After a hard days work, George usually comes home and has a few drinks to relax.
4.______Amy likes to have a good time at parties and she enjoys drinking, though she doesn’t go
just to drink. She enjoys seeing her friends and having fun. Drinking sometimes enhances these
social activities, however, it is not the focus of her socializing.
5.______Pete, a first year student, doesn’t drink all that often, but when he does, he really “ties
6.______Hitting the bars with his friends is one of John’s favorite pastimes but he knows his limit
and tries to stick with it. John never has more than six beers, especially if he is driving.
7.______Jerry likes to have everyone have a good time at his parties, but he is never insistent
about refilling drinks. In fact, Jerry will express displeasure if he feels that a person has had too
much to drink.
