“Pre-Gaming” Before Going Out Leads To Drinking

NBC – Young adults who engage in pre-drinking, also called pre-gaming, are more likely to drink heavily over the course of an evening than those who don’t pre-drink, a new study suggests. Pre-drinking involves drinking alcohol at home or in a public place, such as a park, before going to a party or bar. Drinkers may want to achieve a “buzz” or get drunk before going out, sometimes in an effort to save money by buying less at the bar.The study also found that those who pre-drank were more likely to suffer risky or unfavorable consequences of drinking, such as blackouts, hangovers, unplanned substance abuse or unprotected sex.

Gee, ya think? People are getting so dumb, I’m pretty sure socks will soon be coming with detailed instructions.
