The Press reports:
Over half of male university students make themselves vomit after bingeing on alcohol.
New research by Canterbury University psychologist Natalie Blackmore found 57.58 per cent of men and 42.26 per cent of women students reported self-induced vomiting after drinking alcohol.
I thought at first the figures would be even higher! But then I realised they are talking about having a voluntary chuck so you can carry on drinking or have less of a hangover, rather than the more traditional involuntary chuck.
If we are talking about a voluntary or self-induced chunder, those figures do seem very high.
The findings, in Blackmore’s master of science thesis, also showed many who self-induced vomiting believed it was acceptable, especially among men.
My experience is far from being acceptable, having a chunder would gain you days of hassling. But again that was for involuntary ones. I really can’t recall many people at all who self-induced.
