Prices not cause of binge boozing

I am an Irishman now living in the Czech Republic. I write from a ski resort in Austria and I am lucky enough to have travelled extensively around the world.

In virtually every country I have visited, I can purchase alcohol cheaper than here, yet they have no binge drinking culture.

So I'd suggest that alcohol pricing is not the answer. Instead, we need education, information and inspiration.
