A colleague, Michael Grose, tweeted a question to prepare for a presentation he is doing this week.

“Why do teenagers binge drink? What’s the motivation?”

It got me thinking and, as I live in a household with two teenagers, I posed the question to my daughter this morning. Always best to ask these questions in the car. She drives to school most days, racking up her hours in the Learner Driver log book, 10 minutes at a time. So I pose the question… she fires back a brilliant straight answer… well actually, it was a return question.

“Why do adults binge drink?”

I think in her return question, there lies an answer. What do you think? Feel free to write your thoughts below.

Thanks for taking the Time & Space to read this.
