    Booze Culture

    Well despite some public polls indicating people were in favour of an age increase it has stayed the same.

    Whats left , price it out of reach ?, less outlets and reduce hours ? Automatic tasering if you cant walk straight and dribble ?

    Im not sure what the answer to the issue is but after a weekend working, i hope someone finds the answers.

    Oh yeah and a tip when your pissed and think no one can hear you mutter and whisper "queer f*cking c*nt" quietly. You are actually pretty loud, I had to point that out to someone.

    Changing the rules takes minutes, changing a culture takes generations

    The trick is to teach young people to be responsible with alcohol (which I acknowledge is not an easy thing). The drinking age was twenty when I was a young fellah but that didn't necessarily stop people drinking at a younger age. Hell half the blokes in the Tokoroa pub would have been under 20 and some of them on the bush gangs were there at 16.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Hey that's what Lance Armstrong said, wasn't it?

    She loves the free fresh wind in her hair; Life without care. She's broke but it's oke; that's why the lady is a tramp.

    Maybe instead of putting it all on the "young people" (not to pick on you Rushy, for some reason the whole debate has become about 18-20 year olds) we could start expecting better things of some of our less-young people. Perhaps for instance if prominent All Blacks got more than a few disapproving words from team management in the wake of alcohol-fuelled assaults and vandalism. Or if we weren't every week seeing another Shortie Street actor up for drink-driving. Not to say that young people are innocent, but they're learning this crap from somewhere.

    (Interestingly, ALAC and an independent Auck Uni study have found that underage drinking has been gradually falling over the last 2 or 3 decades.)

    Mattdw, Kiwi Greg, I agree with you both that the problem of alcohol abuse is far wider than the just young people and that the way many so called role models have been treated when they get out of line certainly does not set good example. The alcohol problem is society wide and certainly not specific to the young but it is the young that I think we are most able to influence with good campaigns as the older they get the more set in their ways people become. Alas there is no immediate panacea to this age old issue.

    Hmmm. I was in the Dunsandel pub and the Court Inn as a soldier at just 18 when the licensing law was still set to 20 and would typically have 2 or 3 pints before dinner in the OR's mess or Corporals Club so know what you mean.

    Some of our worst drinkers are well over 18. They set a great example for kids to follow. I kind of hate going out to the pubs now. I look around and see people acting like animals and just go home. Seeing grown men (and woman) walking around covered in piss and spew and hurling disrespectful comments at people they are trying to buy a feed off just makes me want to punch someone in the face. No wonder the cops don't fuck around much anymore. I really feel sorry for them having to stay up late at night and look after people who have the mental capacity of a toddler.
