Und daran ist dann auch die Liebe zerbrochen. Schau zu dir und nicht zu tief ins Glas. Ein Programm zum Umgang mit Alkohol vom Bundesamt für Gesundheit mit EAV und SFA. Alles im Griff. cR SDDB Basel Bears the logo of "Alles im griff?" campaign: a bottle-opener and corkscrew. Bears the website address: www.alles-im-griff.ch Translation of lettering: Love also gets broken by this [drinking]. Look at yourself and not too deep into the glass. A programme for dealing with alcohol by the Federal Ministry of Health with the EAV and SFA


The "Alles im griff?" campaign ("Everything under control?") in Switzerland was a phased programme lasting from 1999 to 2008. It consisted of poster and television advertisements against alcohol misuse, using at first (1999) the corkscrew and then (2000-2008) the drinking glass as its unifying motif--website of the Bundesamt für Gesundheit, accessed 1 March 2011
