Abstract:Aim of this study was to explain binge drinking behavior of adolescents from Dülmen in Germany with a combination of the prototype/willingness model, alcohol expectancy and social norm. Alcohol consumption and the social cognitions in relation to binge drinking behavior of 111 respondents were measured with a questionnaire. Results show that binge drinking is a widespread problem in Dülmen. The frequent binge drinkers score significantly higher on the scales measuring prototype/willingness, alcohol expectancy and social norm so one can conclude that these social cognitions are influencing adolescents’ health risk behavior. Especially the prototype/willingness model seems to be decisive when explaining binge drinking from adolescents in Dülmen.
