There is a concerning trend among younger adults to drink for the sole purpose of getting drunk.
This usually leads to poor decision making that can affect their life, or the life of others.
Alcohol-related incidents tie up vital community resources, not just police, but other emergency services and hospital emergency rooms.
While these resources will always be there to help those in need, it is a shame to see such critical services being diverted to so many alcohol related incidents that could have been avoided.
There is nothing wrong with going out for a couple of drinks with your mates, your family, or your colleagues, but you need to know your limits, and you need to consider those people around you.
Alcohol fuelled anti-social behaviour is not acceptable.
