Dr Albert Makary says we must change the way
New Zealanders think
about abusing alcohol and other drugs.

His message was given at the NZ Forum on the Family 2011

Dr Albert Makary
Timaru gynaecologist Albert Makary was born in Egypt but has lived the past 23 years in the West. He is the father of three, a doctor and a thinker. Dr Makary says New Zealand has a huge alcohol and substance abuse problem, and as a country we need to completely change the way we think about the issue. He says the drinking culture in New Zealand has a direct link to family violence, sexual health, self esteem, and youth suicide.

How big is the problem in NZ?
How does Alcohol Work?
Advertising, & the Marketing Strategy of Alcohol Companies.
Alcohol lowers Inhibitions. Sex has become a sport.

  • Young people “pre-load” at home on cheap supermarket 13% wine and then go out 11:00pm.
  • Majority of teenagers get alcohol from parents.
  • 60% of sexual assaults involve alcohol.
  • Drunken girls being treated like Ewes in a Paddock. No one is addressing Promiscuity
  • Highest Level of Promiscuity = Highest Level of Youth Suicide
  • Highest Blood Alcohol Drink Drive in Western World.
  • New Zealand Accident and Emergency Hospital Wards are a war zone. Good Friday no alcohol related admissions, on Saturday five broken jaws from fighting.
  • Recent survey 98% of respondents believe the blood alcohol level should be lowered. Currently highest in the OECD.
What can be done?
  • Excess drinking should be stigmatized.
  • “We have a chance in a generation to make change, Alcohol Law Reform Act”.
  • CHILDREN ARE OUR GREATEST ASSET. Work in schools with young children discrediting drunkenness. Stigmatize it.
  • Schools must stop allowing alcohol being used with sports teams and social occasions.
  • Grandparents are the most effective people to bring about this change.
  • We must make submissions to limit and control alcohol.
