EDMONTON – A new awareness campaign is using posters showing people in bad situations following a night of binge drinking to educate people about the issue.
The posters show a young woman in a very emotional state, a man with injuries from a fight, another man vomiting on someone, and two people in bed together looking quite awkward.
The AGLC says the campaign targets binge drinking “in a clever way” to remind young adults “they need to think about their drinking choices.”
The ‘Thanks Alcohol!’ website includes the tagline: ‘it can’t always be the alcohol’s fault.’
The site also includes tips on how to take control – like eating a full meal, slowing down the alcohol consumption, setting aside a specific amount of cash for the night, and making sure you’re with a good group of friends – and links to other resources.
