THE WORD ON THE STREET

Do you think there is a drinking problem in Australia?

- Words and Pictures: Josh Dutton

BEN PRINCE 27, circus performer, Brisbane Not compared to other countries. I think drinking is more of a problem when it leads to violent behaviour. DANICA BEAVIS 24, student, Sunnybank I’m a uni student so it seems like everyone has a drinking problem. JOANNE BELL

32, nurse, New Farm Yes, I think so. As a nurse I see it all the time when people come in highly intoxicate­d. MICKELINA SERENA

74, retired, Cleveland I think so but I’m not a drinker. It makes people aggressive and makes teenagers do stupid things. MARK HEINRICHS 29, hospitalit­y worker, New Farm I think people do have problems with drinking here. They get aggressive but I guess most people do when they’re drunk. JAKE CONNOR MOSS

20, student, Morningsid­e I think our drinking culture is great. There’s no problem with it. The only issue is, a few individual­s are idiots.
