Although alcohol is legal, it is still considered a drug and can be dangerous. Whether it’s excessive alcohol intake, drink spiking or alcohol-induced crime, drinking can have adverse effects on a person’s health and lower their inhibitions, often putting themselves or others at risk.

The Fixers on this page are sharing their stories and campaigning for greater understanding of the issues relating to drinking and alcohol.

With campaigns on topics such as binge drinking, coping with alcohol addiction, or saying no to peer pressure, these Fixers are using their experiences and stories to provide a sober look at some of the perils of drink.
