It was carried out in schools in the Bajo Alentejo sub-region (Portugal), where data from the National Health Survey 2005-2006 indicate to a growth in the prevalence of alcohol users. A questionnaire was applied, obtaining 501 valid answers from students at the end of basic education and secondary education.
