Not to mention, she says, how the alcohol industry would feel about the government telling their richest customers to curb their drinking. They much prefer that PSAs focus on young people. “This industry can well afford the much-touted ‘We Card’ programs,” says Sternheimer, “because teens usually don’t have the money for the expensive stuff that their parents can buy.”

The industry’s marketing to wealthy, white men, then, goes unchecked.

I don’t find it shocking that men who are 35-64 and earn over $70,000 have a drinking problem. I think that those who have stressful jobs such as lawyers, dentist, and doctors are more likely to drink or even kill themselves. I have read articles where those three occupations are the people who are most likely to commit suicide. It’s kind of a no brainer that those who earn more money than the usual and have stressful jobs would binge drink. I also think that we focus on teen drinking in aspects of how will it affect them in the long run. Alcohol is addictive and a suppressant, and this learned behavior at such a young age could continue on for years. If we focus those who are at risk we are helping them out in short term aspects but also long term.

It's as easy to romanticize the past as it is to demonize it; instead, let's learn from it.

The history of home ec, lessons in thrift, practical tips and ideas from the past focused on sustainability for families and out planet. Companion to
