"We're trying through such campaigns to change the drinking culture in this country, but we realize it's a huge task."1

- Wendy Moore, Principal Policy Advisor, Alcohol Advisory Council (ALAC) of New Zealand, in 2008.

"These commercials are unpleasant but so are the consequences of binge drinking. The ads mirror what is happening, unfortunately, every week around this country. It is time to be brutally honest about some of the worst effects of intoxication."2

- Gerard Vaughan, (Vaughan) CEO, ALAC, in 2008.


In April 2008, the Alcohol Advisory Council3 of New Zealand (ALAC) launched the 'brutally honest' campaign targeting binge drinkers in New Zealand.

The campaign was launched soon after research conducted by ALAC uncovered that a quarter of the adult population in the country were binge drinkers.

The research also revealed that the harmful consequences of binge drinking had led to the country incurring costs of around NZ$ 4 billion a year.4
