These warnings are mainly aimed at pregnant women and teenagers, as many do not have adequate knowledge about the harmful effects of alcohol. Statistics also show that an average Australian starts drinking at the age of 15.

The kind of warning messages which will appear on the labels of alcohol products will read thus: "Kids and Alcohol Don't Mix," ''It is Safest Not to Drink While Pregnant," and "Is Your Drinking Harming Yourself or Others?"
