Why are young people having less booze, sex, drugs, and rock and roll?

Why are young people having less booze, sex, drugs, and rock and roll?

 

Young people are having less booze, sex, drugs and rock and roll

 

 

Millennial bashing, as trendy as it may be, shows the stark difference between the baby boomer generation and the youth of today. Youngs people, meaning 18-24-year-olds, are having less sex, less drugs and less alcohol than their previous generation, but they are also reportedly more isolated. Contrary to popular belief, youngs people seem to be living less reckless and self-serving lives than the hedonistic ways of their parents, especially when you consider the stats below. Teens are getting drunk less often and they start drinking later. A fifth of British 16 to 24-year-olds don’t drink at all. Unsurprisingly the number of pubs has also lowered, falling by 1,000 a year, with nightclubs faring even worse, shows research by The Economist. European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Addiction shows that the proportion of youngsters trying cigarettes has fallen since 1999. Last year, 11.3% of people aged 18-24 tried cannabis, 4% used cocaine, and 3.1% MDMA. Physical fighting between 13 to 15-year-olds also fell. Anti-social behaviour has dropped too, in 2007 almost 3,000 teens were in custody but by 2016, it was below 1,000. Sex is another thing that young people are doing less. In America 15.2% of people born in the 90s reported not having a sexual partner.

Japanese men are even more unlucky in love and lust as almost half, 47% of 20-24-year-olds said they had never had sex with a woman, up from the 34% reported in 2012. When they do have sex, they’re having it more safely. Around 80% of people aged 16–24 said they had used a condom when they first had sex, compared with 40 per cent of those in their early 30s. But why? One reason could be the way they are reared. Parents on average spend a lot more time with children than they did 50 years ago. The Economist reported that while in 1965 parents spent 54 minutes a day with their offspring, in 2012 it went up to 104. Family men made an even greater jump, up from spending 16 minutes with their children, to 59. The fact that parents, especially the middle-class, are placing more importance on family time mean young people are able to talk to their parents more. The doted-upon children who grow up listening to their parents are becoming amenable adults. For example, parents who consistently warn against the dangers of drinking/sex at too young an age are likely to have children that will listen to the advice.

One mum who had a care-free and liberated childhood tells Metro.co.uk why she won’t let her children have the same freedoms. Polly Buckland says: ‘As a thirty-something mum of two small girls, I’m already anxious about the freedom that they will want as they grow. By all accounts I was a “good girl” growing up, with a sensible head. ‘As such, getting the train into town unaccompanied at twelve was the norm, a trip to Dublin with two friends at sixteen for a long weekend, staying in a hostel and sampling a Guiness or two was absolutely fine. ‘Fast forward nineteen years and there is absolutely no chance whatsoever that my girls will even be walking to school alone in our sleepy village… possibly ever.

Because dealers drugs are crap and over top priced for if a was young today in the X-Factor generation i would not bother to. as dealers have NOTING to turn you on in the first place! with what? some council hash called soapbar made in oven make a whole slab for £30  and they want £40 for a small amount of plastic! The cocain is so mixed that much MY WEED takes over the cocaine thats how shit Spain cocaine is! 


BUT watch what happens if coffee shop where to come things would change as then it will be trendy etc. 


These dealer have been getting ALL there drugs from Spain since 1985 and Spain is the worse place IN THE WORLD to get any drugs but our dopey dealers go to Spain for shite its all what we call Council plastic Hash and none hitting weed chopped before ready and so on! 


its all down to laziness! and most street dealers would not know weed or hash even if it got up and slapped them as ALL dealers have never had any real weed or drugs sine 1985. they are stuck in the 80s all that missing is shell suites lol only growers are in the 21 century have the real thing!

 

Lets please change...

One reason could be that you no longer get pub bands that would appear at venues like this The Bridge House :headbang: with people like this people piccies appearing nightly, this was just one East End pub in the 70's - don't look up from the iPhone, there might be some rock and roll on :oldtoker:

@stusleeper Yup we had way better music to hang out/party to. Whether your cup of tea was rock/hiphop/goth/dance/metal, it was incredible compared to 2018's state of music.
Clean living, perfect skin, gym membership, nutrabullets and dubstep. Reminds me of American Psycho hah.

This and (probably controversial) but the new drug is porn IMO. They’re not having sex cause they’re sitting in front of a screen beating off. Overly sexualised content/people everywhere why actually connect with other human beings and have sex. Also much more caffeine and sugar. I know it sounds trivial but they’re getting constantly stimulated from these ‘drugs’ so don’t need ‘hard’ drugs.

the pubs are being foreced to close because big companies buy them up in bulk and increase the rent and tie you to a brewery that gives you shite

 

prices on beer and spirits 

 

that, super markets and the smoking ban is forcing people to drink less out and pubs to close 

 

 

that one sentence of miss-information invalidates the whole story for me

Also this is only in the UK the rest of the world is still partying on! and still going Do bands in PUBS Hint Hint! 

 

Yep i remember traveling all over the UK in pubs before the smoke ban one moment in Sheffield everyone partying getting loaded and having a good time then after that i would to London again everyone was having great same all over UK, some of the bands from rock hip hop and the rest fantastic sound! The X-Factor come along and totally killed off UK CULT music now its just fairy wimpy music and singers most of them cannot break and music market in anywhere in the world.

 

now in 2018 Dead times NO Cult anywhere i have to be honest at times am glad to get away from the UK and see the rest of the world youth still being young great to watch but on the behalf of this generation the governments have stop them from being young with bans for everything the UK government have always hated the Youth in the UK sas all you older ones should know! :wassnnme:
