Campaign raises awareness of alcohol problems

On National Action Day for Alcohol Problems, Swiss organisations have warned of the consequences of drinking too much.

Under the motto "Alcohol: don't slip up", the campaign is intended to get the message across to the public that people have different alcohol thresholds: low-risk consumption for some people might be problematic for others.

Age, gender, general health, quantity and where one drinks are all factors, according to the Swiss Institute for the Prevention of Alcohol and Drug Problems on Thursday.

It estimated that 300,000 people are dependent on alcohol in Switzerland. In addition, more than 900,000 occasionally drink too much.
