I became a heavy drinker in college. The reason I believe this happened to me is because I was free away from my strict parents. I thought it gave me confidence. I also had peer pressure and wanted to look cool. I was on the road to becoming an alcoholic and decided around my senior year to stop. I saw how alcohol had destroyed other members of my family and I didn't want that for myself. When I was in college I believe the administration could have done a better job at addressing this issue because they know what goes on college campuses.
