The Australian Secondary School Students Alcohol and Drug (ASSAD) survey is Australia’s largest national survey of adolescent substance use. The survey has been running since 1984 and the 2022-2023 survey results have recently been released. The data help us get a better picture of young Australian’s substance use and how this has changed over time.

Young people are often exposed to alcohol and other drug use through the media, whether this be through advertisements, the news, fictionalised media (e.g., movies, tv shows), or social media. These exposures and advertising techniques can be very persuasive and can go on to influence a young person’s own use.

Health authorities are increasingly concerned about the illegal sale of a new nicotine product luring in young people and gaining traction across Australia. Nicotine pouches are small sachets, the size of a piece of chewing gum, that are tucked under the lip allowing the nicotine — and sweeteners or flavourings — to be absorbed into the bloodstream.

You may have come across the phrase ‘sober curious’, or ‘semi-sober’ online or in conversations with friends. With campaigns like febfast gaining popularity in recent years, many people are exploring semi-sobriety by having a break from alcohol, or drinking less. But what does being ‘sober curious’ look like?
