Alcoholism has been a serious problem in Australia, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. Alcohol-related damages in Victoria alone costs $4.3 billion a year. Such damages include road accidents, crimes, and health problems, just to name a few.
Alcohol-related harm is not limited to drinkers but also affects their families and the community. Domestic violence and child abuse are commonly the issues a family suffers from with an alcoholic family member.
Why Do People Use Alcohol?
People engage in alcohol for different social activity, cultural participation, or religious observance. But in a personal level, a person usually drink for creativity, pleasure, relaxation, or to escape or forget their troubles.
Most first-time drinkers use alcohol for curiosity and peer pressure. It is also alarming that under-age drinking is prominent in Australia. White & Hayman 2004 study reveals that by the age of 14, around 90% of students have tried drinking.
