Alcohol is the most socially accepted drug in Australia but it is also the most abused drug. Alcohol education is important because people need to know how to handle alcohol and how alcohol can affect us. We see people drinking and having fun in everyday life but we do’t know how it can harm us and the risks we are taking by drinking alcohol. We need to know how alcohol can affect us socially, physically and mentally. This alcohol education can lead to us being protected from the dangers of alcohol and who knows; it might just save your life.
