Alcohol Awareness Week

Today I attended the launch of Alcohol Awareness Week at our Bridge Program in St Kilda. The results of recent research reveal that something like 8.4 million people in Australia think that alcohol advertising should be reduced and another 3.6 million people want alcohol advertising banned altogether. The launch also highlighted the personal impact of alcohol abuse claiming that the number of people that would openly say that alcohol has had a negative impact on them or their family is around 4.3 million.
