Drinking too much
For many of us, having a drink is an enjoyable way to unwind and relax. It’s part of any good celebration or a way to socialise with friends. Whatever your tipple, wine, beer or spirits, that drink to unwind at the end of the day can easily sneak up on us and become a habit. Drinking too much on a regular basis can be harmful to our health. It also affects our performance at work and impacts on the quality of our leisure time with family and friends. If you are worried about your drinking, or just interested to find out more about it, there are some useful websites with lots of great information.
