The problem of alcoholism has become very popular in the majority of countries all over the world. People of a different social status, of a different age category, and of a different nationality start using alcohol on different purposes. In order to decrease the percentage of people who use alcohol and thus avoid the problems, which are closely connected with alcoholism, a number of alcohol laws were created.
