The Welsh Government says 34,000 hospital admissions caused by alcohol misuse every year cost the Welsh NHS £109m annually.
Deputy Minister Health Minister Vaughan Gething says figures show more then 4 out of 10 adults in Wales report drinking more than the recommended guideline amount of alcohol at least once in the last week.
Statistics released last month for alcohol-related deaths showed there were 467 deaths in Wales in 2013.
The Welsh Government says it will invest almost £50m in 2015-16 in initiatives to tackle the harms associated with both alcohol and drug misuse.
"Alcohol misuse is leading to a range of well-evidenced health and social harms, particularly for the significant minority of people who drink to excess and do not recognise the harm they are doing to themselves and others.
While there has been an overall downward decline in the number of alcohol-related deaths in Wales since 2008, that people die as a result of consuming too much alcohol is still a stark reminder of the challenges we still face in tackling the causes and impact of substance misuse."
Newport County suffered their sixth defeat in ten games as Mansfield scored late to secure all three points at Rodney Parade.
Stags midfielder Reggie Lambe netted the only goal of the game in the 87th minute, leaving Newport still in the League 2 promotion places but just a point ahead of Plymouth and Stevenage.
The hosts dominated for much of the game but couldn't find a way through, before Lambe converted from a Callum Elder cross.
Natural Resources Minister Carl Sargeant has written to the UK’s “Big Six” energy firms, along with the Co-operative Energy and First Utility, asking them to meet him to discuss how they can work more effectively with the Welsh Government to tackle fuel poverty.
The Welsh Government says almost a third of households in Wales are in fuel poverty.
"In Wales we have been successful in delivering multiple benefits through our energy efficiency programmes, such as Arbed, including jobs, wider community benefits, training and advice for residents.
Our additional investment for the next financial year is £35m. I want the energy companies to see how effective our approach in Wales is and discuss how working together we can maximise the amount.. they invest in these schemes in Wales."
