More than 90 percent of high school students in Serbia have tried some alcoholic drink before the age of 18, the Vita Special Hospital for Addiction Illnesses said in a press release on Tuesday.

The Vita hospital conducted its own research into possible addictions among underaged Serbians.  

The research results show that 69.5 percent of under-aged high school students have been drunk which is about 10 percent more than four years ago.  

The research results showed that 58.5 percent of high school students drink alcoholic beverages “more or less regularly”. Some 60 percent have had their first drink with their peers and 40 percent said they had their first taste of alcohol with their family, the press release said.  

Vita researchers interviewed 480 high school students, the press release said.
