« Guardian attacks Government alcohol policy claiming responsibilty deal 'on the rocks' | Main | NICE 'Alcohol dependence and harmful alcohol use' clinical guidelines »

you should always drink moderately more especially if you are driving, to avoid any accidents. Bar attendants must also assist customers to drink within their appropriate limits. And in that way, they should be able to correctly identify customers to whom their service should be refused.

Why is it the Governments fault? Responsibility is paramount to life. It is better to hit the abuser in the pocket - not high prise alcohol, but cost of services to come out of abusers pocket - insurance and saving schemes for those who drink too much and have to have more heath-care than the norm.

Nudging can only be a very little aspect in alcohol prevention, but still a useful one. As the British Government is not willing to act effectfully, such small items get attention like a straw.
