Social cost of alcohol

My legs almost gave way when I read the latest figures for the impact of excessive drinking on the US economy:

• $77,000 million in reduced productivity and working days missed

• $172,000 million in healthcare and alcohol-related crime.

The total is $249,000 million. Quite a hangover.
