When did it become that you can’t have a good time w/o alcohol?
When the alcohol purveyors began to full-on change their marketing. They specifically targeted women with the onset of “coolers”, in the hopes of ramping it up afterwards. It was deliberate. They also began to advertise the “alcohol is cool” factor to young people — because, profits over people.
Hell, right now in AU, I get treated to “Easter Sales” — yep, of ALCOHOL! And every other possible holiday, ffs. It’s a vile & sick social-conditioning taking place to siphon some more money into the pockets of people who don’t give a sh*t if it kills entire families & communities. That’s my answer.
