Britain has recognised that it has a problem with binge drinking, especially amongst young people, men and women, as far as I know binge drinking is practised in Britain more than anywhere else in Europe, you only have to drive at weekend evenings to see scores of young people behaving badly and making fools out of themselves. what has noticeably increased is the number of women binge drinking and ending up in situations you would not wish on your enemy.
The new London mayor Boris Johnson banned drinking on the London transport network only few weeks ago (and rightly so) the night before the ban, members of the public organised a drinking party on the London Underground train network, thousands of people turned up, made a big mess, some trouble but the main thing is they embarrassed themselves since the media was there filming their drunken behaviour, the next day many newspapers published the following picture of a well dressed young woman who got so much drunk that she fell unconscious on a public bench, anything could have happened to her plus imagine her shame when she saw her picture on the news! the sight of women vomiting and falling in the streets is becoming very common now.
The government here published 2 hard hitting adverts on TV aimed at mainly young people, these adverts are quite graphic and to the point but would they work in deterring people?? that remains to be seen.
Drinking is harmful in many ways and while many people say they only drink a little and do not allow themselves to get drunk, while it might be true with some people but with most it is just an excuse and they are in denial.
