    Default Alcohol abuse

    Hello


    Long time since I last made a thread, so bear with me. I stumbled across this video the other day, my mission is to share it where possible as its affected the way I view alcohol, and indeed alcoholics profoundly. Here it is...

    It's a bit dark but there is light too. If anyone has some spare time or interest give it a watch.

    Thank you!

    It is so sad to see someone with alcoholism - having witnessed it first hand I wish more was done on this problem!

    I entirely agree. Perhaps the drinks industry should be made to cough up some of the billions they make from this misery each year. Here's hoping.

    Can I just point out the irony of the subject of your thread, and your signature

    Yes

    In my defence I never drink Tequila. Actually after watching the above I doubt I will ever drink again.

    It's the brewery's that make the money. Most pubs barely make ends meet or they make their money from food. The brewery's and the people that actually make the alcohol should be contributing, but again, not at the expense of the publican's.

    I mean the breweries doll. The government in the UK put all of the abuse funding towards drugs. Leaving next to nothing to care for the people on the liver wards. I think that's intinsically wrong - I also think we need some research into how we've allowed this drug to become so well promoted and loved by our culture.

    Any contribution forced from any part of the industry will just be passed onto the end consumer. For most alcoholics price is not much of a deterrent, they will just end up spending more money on it leaving their families with less.

    The price isn't a deterrent. However the effects are unavoidable, and an eight week stay in hospital costs a small fortune. At the moment the tax payer covers that.
