Most people in this country enjoy the odd tipple, and with Christmas on the horizon it is not unusual to enjoy a glass or two (or three) more of our favourite drink. There's no doubt that alcohol is the nation's favourite drug, and herein lies a potential problem.
Like all drugs, prescribed or 'recreational', alcohol can have unwanted effects — and alcohol also carries the risk of addiction. We all know this, and no-one wants to be preached at by holier-than-thou health nuts. But maybe it's time to reflect a little on our creeping levels of consumption?
Alcohol Awareness Week is simply that — an encouragement to stop and reflect on our own personal drinking habits.
If Christmas and New Year is a time when we are likely to over-indulge somewhat, what better time to consider being a little more mindful of our alcohol consumption, to bear in mind the potential longer-term consequences, and maybe (just maybe) think about going dry for the month of January?
Just a thought.
