Warnings on Social Media by Outraged Councillors and others sounds like they really want to do something about alcohol issues. A more lasting solution would be to put warnings on bottles explaining that if the contents are consumed all at once or two rapidly this can make you violently ill or in fact lead to death. So if people want to warn young people about the dangers of alcohol, don't blame a passing fad, blame availability, access and culture we have created and legislated for.
