In a society where our social interactions more often than not revolve around alcohol, how do young people learn how to be around each other?

Food, clothing, shelter and water are the basic neccesities of human existence/survival. Promisicuity, infidelity, unplanned, unwanted, un-cared for pregnencies, STD's, abortion, emotional fallouts on an hollistical scale, through simply getting smashed and trolleyed because of the readily avalilability of RTD's and all other cheap booze, isn't. Infidelity is a sad, mad indiciment on NZ Teens today. All sorts of pressures, and galmorising of heightened sexual activity, causes to tend teens towards this exact kind of behaviour, including rebellion, and bucking against the system, of what's expected to be the normal, proper, expected behaviour in all society. There are and have been, countless, and pleanty of warnning signs, television advertisments, road placards, pamhlets, websites, advertising boards, radio messages, anything and everything to heed the ways of this cultured young society, that has been going on and carrying on for many years now. Role Models of the National Sporting kind is fine, and all good, in one way. They can only do so very little, in aspect towards rectifying this indciment. The REAL examples, or so called there of, surely must have to be with the parents of these teens, of which, most, if not all, have them. And yes, we all do know how rebellious and wayward teens are and can be today, which makes parenting a very difficulty, hands full, occupation these days. We've all seen these stories and things on the evenning news, but it is parents responsibilities, to nurture and discipline their kids into matuering into responsibile adults. This kind of angst towards them and their anti-social stances, will just continue on if Government and Society don't take some sort of stand, togther, and act heavily, now!

I do find the NZ girls very promiscious; In their drunkeness they hunt the men like a bunch of randy hyenas. Years later when they cannot conceive because of damaged Fallopian tubes ravaged by continues STD's, they blame their misfortune on others and demand the best that medicine can offer. Shame on you for being so selfish!

The sad truth is with some girls alcohol the most common fast route into getting into a girls pants with out going to jail.
Not that it should be made illegal but at the same time i feel sorry for the females who have slept with the wrong people caught diseases or fell pregnant as a result.
Its human nature but at the same time i feel there need to be more public service commercials that cover the down side to not wearing protection/etc, not just for venereal disease but also the consequences for sleeping with the wrong person or having a baby when one does not that responsibility yet.
I have no bone with alcohol but given nz'ers drinking culture such commercials are really needed, alcohol companys should front up the money to pay for them if they are to profit from its sales.
