10 In 2011 the use of Alprazolam (both prescribed and non-prescribed) was investigated separately to other benzodiazepines. Thirty-six percent of the sample reported recent use of non-prescribed Alprazolam and 24% reported recent use of other non-prescribed benzodiazepines. In 2010, 28% of the sample had reported recent use of any nonprescribed benzodiazepines (33% in 2009 and 40% in 2008). Reported recent use of tobacco increased to 97% of the sample (90% in 2010 and 92% in 2009). Recent use of alcohol also increased to 63% of the sample (57% in 2010 and 50% in 2009).
