Drink too much, you’re asking for trouble
SA Health's ‘Drink too much, you're asking for trouble’ campaign graphically depicts the serious consequences of drinking too much.
The campaign aims to make people sit up and take notice of the negative impacts of drinking too much in terms of health/safety, legal and social harms so they start to think about whether they need to reduce their alcohol consumption.
If South Australians consumed less alcohol there would be a decrease in alcohol-related harm in the community.
Males aged 18 to 39 and females aged 18 to 29 are the most likely to drink at risky levels. Approximately 100 people from these age groups participated in focus groups that helped shape the campaign. Focus group participants said the campaign needed to "tell it how it is".
The campaign has been developed in response to this feedback and depicts four very real, alarmingly common consequences of drinking too much.
