Summary "It soothes nerves, loosens tongues and triggers sexual adventures. For some people, however fleetingly, it solves all the problems of the world. But its addictive and disinhibiting effects can give rein to abuse and violence of the worst kind. Australians are increasingly aware of the destructive downside of alcohol. Now, with the Rudd Government targeting teen bingeing, is the nation taking a first, tentative step towards admitting to a drinking problem? Wowsers, boozers and the moderate majority are joined in fierce debate over alcohol consumption patterns, taxation, advertising and licensing hours. Boiled down, the argument is whether Canberra's intervention on alcopops and education is necessary, and whether it will actually work in curbing how much young Australians drink. "-- website
