ently, I have found some really interesting article on Australian culture based on drinking issue through the interview of

There are some really interesting point that I want to share, as there are a changes in alcohol drinking habit among Australia from the past. In the present now, Australia alcohol drinking average are falling which means that young generation nowadays becoming to acknowledged the negative affected of alcohol. However, there are still some group of young adult who think that drinking alcohol is cool, or social pressure where every of their friends are drinkers.

Moreover, in Australian culture there has been a change since the 1960s with the introduction of a wine culture and a move to integrate alcohol with food. To drink in moderation, with food, as part of a pleasurable activity that doesn’t necessarily have the purpose of getting drunk, is a new trend. It may seem pretty basic but this development does seem to have happened with some degree of significance over the last 150 years.

Thus, It does seem that alcohol drinking are a trend but would it necessary for people to drink just to socialized ? there still any other activities that they could experiences in order to have some fun with their friends .. and I wish many drinkers could possibly find some other activities to be socialized other then just drinking alcohol 🙂 ps, stay clean life everyone .. ..

    It seems that binge drinking is an Australian right of passage. And i for one wish i had missed that trend!! Now i wish i had accepted my very ‘uncool’ status with pride rather than joining my peers in underage drinking!!

    This is an interesting post and I hope that this shift in culture starts to change.
    I myself enjoy the odd drink, and could be accused of participating in Australia’s binge drinking culture from time to time, but associating alcohol with food, whilst not really stopping this culture, definitely moderates it.
    It is a problem in society and can lead to many illnesses and problems later in life. Lets hope the trends continue to change!

      Thank you for your support, I have trying to promote non-drinking to stand up even though there are a minority people among Australian cultures. And what you said is actually really true that alcohol could possibly cause many damage in value of property and also in life, I wish the new generation can still see some good role model who are non drinker 🙂
