Kathryn D'Arcy: Demonising drink industry won't stop abuse
I am proud to be one of over 60,000 people working in the drinks industry in this country. That does not mean I am blind to the damage that excessive consumption and misuse of our products does to our customers, our society and our economy.
I am a mother, I want my young daughter to understand and appreciate that it is not acceptable to binge drink, that it is not cool to be drunk and that the longer she does not drink, the healthier her relationship with alcohol will be. I want her to know that we all have choices, and I am hoping to educate her to make the right choices.
But demonising an entire industry is not how we do this.
