LIVES RU­INED

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

WHY all of a sud­den does it take a doc­tor to come out and say some­thing about prob­lems with al­co­hol be­fore any­thing looks like be­ing done about it?

Peo­ple whose lives and fam­i­lies have been ripped apart by this drug have been telling us about it for years.

It’s not only the binge drink­ing with young peo­ple, this is the main in­gre­di­ent with most do­mes­tic vi­o­lence.

It has ru­ined film stars, sports stars, politi­cians and or­di­nary peo­ple, yet still it is too ac­ces­si­ble: it must be the rev­enue al­co­hol brings in. DES PARKYN, Bel­mont.
