Alcohol Concern On Road to Prohibition

Alcohol Concern has published a report entitled "Swept under the carpet" about children of parents who drink too much. Is this the first step towards a campaign to make alcohol illegal? The report tell us early on that:
84% agreed that a parent who drinks heavily is as harmful to a child as a parent who takes drugs.
At the bottom of that page is a quote in big letters:
Alcoholism is hidden because it’s legal – it’s swept under the carpet
Maybe it's just me being cynical but comparing alcohol to illegal drugs and decrying its legality looks like a step towards campaigning against that legality. And all for the sake of the children, of course.

  1. And we must'nt forget we gave them £669,000 last year from various sources including the DOH and the Big lottery fund. I think they're just like all the other fake charities trying to scrabble around the trough.
