Alcohol is firmly embedded in many of our lives and many feel it is part of British culture. We've all seen the news though: many of us are drinking too much alcohol.
Why is this a problem?
Alcohol has a wide effect on our lives, but also on our society. It's effects range from the cosmetic (weight gain, bad skin) to physical and mental illness. You are more likley to be involved in accidents when drunk and it can have a devastating effect on relationships and employment.
We perhaps recognise those around us who drink becasue they are physcially dependent on alcohol as those in need of help. However many of us drink harmful levels of alcohol without knowing it. So why not find out whether you are drinking too much and ask youself -"Is it time to cut down?"
