Again, binge drinking was a minority activity of only 21 per cent but, as Table 2 shows, bingers were significantly more likely to be involved in other problem behaviours. 0001 As expected the `bingers' were more often into drugs, and crucially were more often involved in underage sex. It needs to be remembered that our respondents were still at school in Years 10 and 11.
