The relationship between changes in alcohol policy measures and alcohol consumption is discussed on the basis of experiences in Finland during the period -   “Alcohol is, and has been, an unusually important substance for is not because Finns have always drunk, or drink, an unusual amount –rather the opposite.

The reason for this special relationship of Finns with alcohol is to be found in their permanent framework of living: Finland is a northern, cold and sparsely populated country”.
