            Effectiveness of alcohol prevention is a big issue that I am interested in and want the public to discuss and act upon in a positive way. National and local governments, and alcohol education aims to increase people’s awareness about all of the harm that could be done by alcohol. They are hoping that people will realize these issues and adjust their attitude and drinking behavior (Janssen 2013, pp.1-2). The first approach is aimed to limit the availability of alcohol and reduce the supply.
