Don't do it
Address the root social and economic causes of alcohol abuse instead of reducing people's freedoms. Issues of toxic masculinity and intergenerational poverty are at the heart of alcohol related harm. Increasing the price of alcohol won't help address these core issues. It will likely cause people to turn to buy lower quality alcohol or more socially and physically harmful drugs. People will rightly condemn this is a "nanny state" policy.
