Binge drinking is a pattern of heavy drinking spread all over the world, on different levels, especially in Europe, our continent being the heaviest drinking region in the world. Although binge drinkers choose to live in the moment and not think about the consequences, most of the times they regret it afterwards. Our campaign aims to reduce heavy alcohol consumption by making the target aware of the mistakes they make when they drink too much. We have all heard the expression: “I’ll probably regret this tomorrow but...” followed by people drinking large amounts of alcohol disregarding the later consequences. This is where we come in. Our campaign comprises three stages. As regards the first one, we want to advert to a specific effect of binge drinking: the regrets caused by mistakes. We don’t want to be moralistic or preachy; we don’t want to criticize our target, to scare them or to forbid them to drink. In the second phase we want to directly engage the audience in our campaign and turn them from thinking‛ I have to get drunk in order to have fun ‛ to “I can drink less and still feel good” . Our main focus is to efficiently communicate to our target that they could have fun, relax and socialize also by drinking a reasonable amount of alcohol, therefore drinking less. The third phase’ key word is „ACT‛. Our target is informed and aware, engaged and motivated to drink less. Now, they have to act. There is a gap between wanting or planning to drink less and really doing it, therefore our campaign will re-run after a period of time, having in concern the results of the running period.



In any shape or form a mistake comes. the binge drinker’s health or social life is always affected. Example: o o o o o o break-up with (girl)boyfriend. So. therefore he has regrets. Carrying a big amount of regrets is burdensome to anyone. 3 . destroy things. make a fool of themselves. tending to become self-destructive. forget things they’ve done. they make MISTAKES that turn into REGRETS. get arrested. get sick. have unprotected sex.• • • Binge drinkers enjoy the moment by drinking a lot and by taking advantage of all the benefits of alcohol consumption BUT usually they cross the line. drive drunk.
