Personally, I think that this is just part of the damage done by alcohol. What about the economic and social cost of the following:

  • Work days lost due to alcohol consumption?
  • Health issues directly related to alcohol?
  • Opportunity cost of public health services targeted at alcohol related crime, healthcare & social issue?

Thoughts?
