These Honest Alcohol Labels Tell Exactly What You’re In For When You Drink (Photos)

What if the labelling on the booze we drank actually reflected the truth of what drinking does to us physically and to our behaviour?  This brilliant article and it’s images does exactly that!

Advertisements for alcohol always manage to focus on the glamour and glitz that comes with drinking whatever light beer or “top shelf” vodka is being peddled.

But really, alcohol can cause to people make stupid decisions regardless of how much a particular bottle (or its advertisement) goes for.

Companies can spend millions of dollars on the perfect marketing strategy, but it isn’t their job to accurately represent their products — they just want you to buy it.

You can have a sexy label, but it’s probably not going to tell you much about the contents.

Total Sorority Move dreamed up what it would look like if  bottles were forced to be more candid about the possible side effects of different alcohols.

These were my favourites!

They say licorice is good for your stomach, but not when it’s mixed with alcohol.

  1. I love this! 🙂 this has to be my biggest frustration since I’ve stopped. Alcohol ads show all the glamour and fun but not the hangovers and other awful after effects. Thanks for posting it! xx

  2. I’ve been thinking; advertising of alcohol starts sooooo early in life that. It is not only the companies. It is people drinking at your birthday because ‘it is a celebration’. People argueing about ‘who forgot to put the beer in the fridge’ because serving warm beer is a deadly sin. Mother in the supermarket insecure about ‘what wine too choose’ because she wants to show the guests that she is sophisticated. It is parents and neighours with their drunken laughs when you try to take a sip from a beer bottle. ‘No, that is not for you yet! Have to be a little older…’ It’s all around from day 1.

    1. Very true feelingmywaybackintolife. We are literally drowning in the stuff from a societal point of view from the day we are born – ‘wetting the babies head’ right? 🙂

      1. Indeed …. once I hit a year booze free, sugar is next on my hit list!

      2. At the change that you get totally fed up with me saying ‘I’ve read this book…’. Well, I’ve read this book called ‘Sugar Blues’ and quit for 5 years, didn’t even eat tomato paste. It might be way outdated now but it did explain to me why it is BAD. As adictive as cocaine :-/. Good luck!
