During schoolies week it was images of teenagers celebrating the end of school by drinking too much.

Inevitably, anti-alcohol groups have responded as they always do – by attacking the product rather than the behaviour. … (Source: Alcohol Reports, 12/26/10) theage.com.au, 12/26/10 Comment: The alcohol industry complaints that its self regulation doesn’t work.
