One of the major social consequences of alcoholism is its potential negative impacts on the family. Studies suggest that alcoholism is behind a significantly high percentage of the instances of domestic violence including physical or verbal abuse of spouses or children, and is responsible for the break up of many marriages. For example, intoxicated events can have lasting consequences in the family through domestic violence. In addition, money spent on buying alcohol particularly by heavy drinkers may divert scant economic resources that could have otherwise been used for the benefit of the family. It is also worth noting that children living in the family with an alcoholic normally have higher rates of depression, lower grades and frequently feel socially isolated.
An applicant would have to read a manual, and take a written exam which would include questions such as “How many drinks would it take to intoxicate a 150lb man?” and “What is the penalty for drunk driving?” After passing the written test applicants would be issued a drinking license that would be required for buying any alcoholic drink.
In 1942, with the U.S. fully engaged in the war against the Axis powers, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed an executive order creating an Office of War Information. The OWI's mission was to use behavioral psychology and other social sciences (what was termed "social engineering") to study how the U.S. government could best use newspapers and magazine articles, radio, motion pictures, comic strips, and anything else, to educate and mobilize the public on behalf of the war effort. The same year the U.S. Army established an Information and Education Division, led by Brigadier General Frederick H. Osborn (before the war, a prominent member of the Social Science Research Council). Osborn founded a filmmaking unit, headed by the celebrated Hollywood director Frank Capra. Capra in turn established an animation unit headed by Theodore Geisel ("Dr. Seuss") and staffed by a roster of distinguished animators from Warner Brothers and other top studios, John Hubley, Friz Freleng, Chuck Jones, Bob Clampett, Frank Tashlin, Zack Schwartz, David Hilberman and many others. The onscreen animation talent featured soundtrack music by Warner Brothers composer Carl Stallings and voices by Mel Blanc (the voice of Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck). The Navy, Marines, Army Air Force, and Coast Guard followed suit, employing filmmakers, actors and animators -- increasingly working in consultation with educators, psychologists and sociologists. In the course of the war, the U.S. military made thousands of films, live action and animated. Although most of these had nothing to do with public health, focusing on other issues deemed crucial to the war effort, many films did include material on medicine and public health, and some were wholly devoted to health concerns.
Thousands of Americans are affected by alcoholism. This disease is not bias, it affects people of all walks of life. Alcohol is a highly addictive substance that can take hold of your life, for some never letting go and causing them to suffer through the most unbearable effects and in time causing them to hit rock bottom, or worse, succumbing to its affects.

"I have learned that humans generally do things that they should stop doing. In addition, I have learned that reasonable, rational solutions to human problems are seldom pursued for very long. Alcohol abuse is one of the common human aberrations that has an easy, rational solution --- stop drinking. But drinkers routinely avoid the easy, rational path to health and happiness and instead pursue a self-destructive course that causes much harm and great human misery. This is a curious feature of the human mind that requires explanation.
The use of film to educate and mobilize the public for health purposes was not new. Interest in the educational possibilities of motion pictures began practically with the invention of the technology. But the medium of film inspired larger visions. In 1910 Thomas Edison prophesied that the motion picture would "wipe out narrow-minded prejudices which are founded on ignorance,...create a feeling of sympathy and a desire to help the down-trodden people of the earth, and...give new ideals to be followed." Edison clearly had an inventor's (and investor's) interest in promoting motion pictures, but his enthusiasm for his invention was widely shared. Film was almost universally regarded as an exemplary technology of modernity, a medium destined to transform society. In the early decades of the 20th century, military and civilian officials, educators, leaders of philanthropic organizations, and commercial companies like Pathé Frères and Eastman Kodak, all began making and exploring the uses of film to instruct the public and shape public opinion. Public health advocates and professionals - who had ambitious agendas of their own - were especially charmed, deeply impressed by cinema's sway over mass audiences. The first public health film, on the "life drama of the fly," was made in Great Britain in 1910 as part of a national anti-fly campaign. Other productions followed, in Britain, Germany, the United States, France, and, later, Italy and the Soviet Union, on the health hazards of alcoholism, water and food contamination, and other topics.
Dr. Sidney Cohen, a drug abuse expert, described alcohol as "the most dangerous drug on earth." There are a variety of drinking patterns and the range of injury among alcohol abusers is great. Some are mildly injured and can recover on their own with the right tools and techniques. Others are critically injured, need hospitalization and prolonged rehabilitation with custodian supervision. The challenge to a heavy drinker is not just to stop drinking for a while, but to stop forever.
Humans like to become intoxicated. Fermented, liquid foods that contain alcohol are used worldwide in parties, celebrations and rituals. It is common for fermented foods to be included in the daily diet. Small doses of fermented foods relax inhibitions and can feel pleasant in social situations. Larger doses are toxic to the brain and disable the drinker. The regular abuse of alcoholic beverages is called "alcoholism. The stigma attached to the term "alcoholism" remains an obstacle to understanding this common problem.
