Alcohol a problem !

Alcoholism in UK is an important and serious issue as it causes a
direct impact on our economy and nation progress.It feels vital to
organise more campaigns to make youth aware of longstanding damages
alcohol causes both to the person himself and agony to their family
members.This affect economy as these people tend to lack in education due
to lack of concentration and change of attitude towards life.This in turn
causes lack of workforce and hampers nation progress.I think we need
combined effort from government by campaigning,banning alcohol intake in
public places at off peak hours as this will reduce the national violence
and accidents and on the other hand by family members by good parenting.I
think school and colleges can also educate their students to make them
aware of possible consequences of risking their life.I think we need to
act sooner rather than later.
