You think it's easy to graduate from the university, get a job that pays 50k/month with mad targets after 3 years of job hunting?

Surprised nobody has mentioned the number one cause alchol intake is so prevalent among youths even in Junior secondary schools.
Growing up in the 80s 90s and early 2000s, buying of alcohol is expensive, at least for a teenager then, schnapps Aromatic gin comes in very big bottle that not everyone can afford. But now gin comes in N50 and N100 satchets that even a primary school boy can afford.
There are now many brands of cheap satchets gin that claims to be for " manpower" "Jedi""opa eyin" etc some of the brand names sound so ridiculous. The women who sell these alcoholic drinks do pack them in a bowl in different brands. Go to any garage in Lagos or any busy area you will see them there.
In America you can't buy alcohol if you don't have an I'd that you are 18 and in most states 21 years. But here, parents send children to buy beers, uncles send their nephews to buy satchets gin.
I thank God that I have formed all my habits before this new era of drugs and alcohol abuse, please parents you will have to do x10 of home training of what our parents gave us to your kids if you don't want them to waste their lives. Things so bad morally nowadays.
When I was serving I caught little boys not more than 13 to 15 years with nude women photos on their phone? Now anyone with a smart phone and internet connection can have access to millions of porn materials with just a few words search on Google.
Parents don't take anything for granted,things are different now compare to when we were kids.

Honestly, I find it dificult to fathom the craze for all these social vices.

I think it is.more of role model/yeyebrities influence fueled by social media brouhaha

Religious organisations that were a kind of cautions in those days have also changed to money making and show off organisations.

Very simple! Poverty.. someone was asking the other day why rich people no dey indulge in extramarital affairs like the poor.
A very simple reason is poverty; Sex, alcohol , gambling, and other vices are the major source of enjoyment for the common man, and the higher the poverty, the more the person will be indulged in these cases. That's Y u see a poor man struggling to feed two mouth but raising 8 children. After a long day of frustration, the best source of enjoyment the poor soul has is to nack his wife till his brain got reset, which lead to more birth with more compounding issues.

Lack of discipline is another cause but very light compared to the above.
Oh Lord! Ease our affairs and save us from the pang of poverty

Ask our leaders who’ve pushed us to depression
Re: What's The Reason For The Increase In Alcohol Intake Among Youth Today? by melanch(m): 2:45pm On Apr 28, 2019
The major causes are depression, anxiety and peer pressure.

These days, most young people are likely to be depressed. There are lesser jobs, no money or funds, rejections, frequent breakups, feelings of inadequacy etc. These elements affect the Nigerian youths in a bad way.

They just want to get out of their situations with any means necessary even if it's a 30 mins escapade. Life ain't easy. They most of them depend on alcohol to fetch them that euphoria they wanted and frequent drinking will lead to addiction. So they become addicted to alcohol.

Alcohol seem to be rampant and legal unlike other substances such as weed, tramadol etc. So it's easy to buy and drink with friends in public.

Believe me, when Nigeria's standard of living improves, it will affect the level of alcohol consumption in our society.
