Changing Kiwi booze culture: No age limit needed
Changing the Kiwi booze culture
I come from Italy and the age limit on drinking alcohol is a ridiculous thing in my opinion.
I first tried wine at home at the age of ten and started having a few beers in the weekend at the age of 14.
I never abused of alcohol, compared with the people in this country. Two or three beers in the weekend has always been my limit, because in my head alcohol isn't such a big deal.
People in New Zealand need to start understanding this.
Increasing the age limit would make the binge-drinking problem worse. It would mean young people had to wait longer to start drinking, making it seem like more of a big deal.
I think we need strict regulation on drunk people in the city centre. I don't like walking home on a Friday or Saturday night in the city because I don't feel safe at all.
I've never seen anything like this in other countries I visited or lived and I think it's disgusting.
