Alcohol is often blamed for antisocial behaviour and violence in society. GalahadSMS Ltd has carried out research, both independently and on behalf of the alcohol industry that shows that alcohol alone is not the sole cause of violence and antisocial behavior. There are many other factors involved. The fact that the majority of nights out drinking end without any drama at all is nearly always overlooked by the press and those looking for a news story.
Research into alcohol and its use / misuse has to be done using scientific data and without any emotional attachment. We need to look beyond the alcohol and find the reasons that people give for their drinking and the beliefs that they have, regarding alcohol. One of the most common myths regarding alcohol is that it ‘causes’ aggression. This has been proven time and time again to be untrue. It is true though that aggressive people drink but we blame the alcohol every time.
