Alcohol education is one of the most widely used tools in the primary prevention of alcohol-related problems.
One reason for its limited success, however, is that it competes with a barrage of messages that promote the use of alcohol.
The primary source of pro-alcohol messages is social reality itself : the widespread and visible availability of alcoholic drinks, and the presence and acceptibility of alcohol in a variety of everyday situations and contexts.
Current research suggests that the most effective policy consists in controlling the physical and economic availability of alcohol.
Public education and restrictions on alcohol advertising receive far less support.
