24-hour licensing has led to sharp rise in binge drinking

The introduction of 24-hour drinking has led to an increase in heavy alcohol consumption, a major new study has found. Analysis of official health data by researchers at Lancaster University found that the likelihood of people ‘binge drinking’ has increased significantly since the extension of licensing hours. In 2005, Tony Blair’s Labour Government introduced licences [...]

Hi
For my self I would say the sooner they stop brewing alcohol the better I don't see it any better than any other drug in fact it's worse because its so easy to come by.
It destroys lives and families.

Love and Peace

You'd better have a word with Jesus then. He set a bad example by drinking wine and creating it from water.
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)

Actually we all know that God does amazing things when we are in a mess..

I know "when I was waiting for God to move in my life" - it was partly me acting while waiting on God .

But honestly if you had known this eccentric individual decorating his kitchen while wearing bath robes and even stopping a Church from buying a building [because he was a tenant]

You could and would have seen so many problems with me  :tongue:

Thank goodness God saw me for what I would be and not for what I was .

Now this was 35 years ago - but you know - I'm still the same

I like most people do turn to things - when life goes crazy and I cannot control what is happening.

I think we all have ways of blotting out things.

It;s not about taxing alcohol or making things more difficult for people.

You do not stop people drinking by making alcohol illegal as you only have to look at prohibition in the United States of America to see how people simply got round it

Hi Frances
I think the water to wine miracle was to show us that he would turn the water of the word into the blood of his cross as the cup of Communion represents his blood I don't believe our lord was setting his approval on drunkenness and brother Paul confirms this.

  Rom 13:13  Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
 Gal 5:21  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Alcohol is a loaded gun it's just as bad as any other drug and whorse than most and as TJ said you can't stop people drinking and taking drugs but may be we can pursued some to change there life style through Christ.

Love and Peace
