Turning down another round can be tough, especially from a friend.
Whether it’s their shout or they’re shouting at you to keep up, it can be hard to say no. Suddenly we’re racking our brain for an excuse. Any excuse. Big ones, small ones (some as big as a snake).
But you shouldn’t need to. Truth is, the majority of young Victorian drinkers don’t drink to get drunk. So next time you don’t feel like another drink, just remember – you don’t need an excuse.
The No Excuse Needed campaign is brought to you by VicHealth and the State Government. By highlighting that most of us actually drink moderately, they hope to improve our drinking culture by reducing the broader acceptance of drunkenness in Victoria.

From the reaction on Facebook, the videos featuring Marathon Millie and Snake-Eye Stevie have been a hit so far.
