Little Book on Alcohol

My name is Bella, I’m twenty-one and I spent my adolescence growing up in Melbourne.

I don’t know a single person who drinks everyday, but I know a lot of people who have issues with alcohol.  My point is, problems to do with alcohol are not just for those who are considered ‘alcoholics’ or violent.

Anyone who drinks alcohol or is around people who drink should know the potential harms and risks. You may never have touched a drop of alcohol in your life and never want to, or you may claim you invented ‘goon of fortune’ (where you attach a bag of goon to a hills hoist).  Either way, you should be able to get something out of this book.

Just to clarify, this book won’t tell you alcohol is bad and you should never touch it.  This is a book to try and combat the crap.  Hundreds of years of drunken beer hall logic have left the topic of alcohol as confusing as why some ‘celebrities’ are famous.  My hope is this book might set a few things straight.

Enjoy.

Bella
