    Working as a junior doctor, I definitely come across people who are drinking way over the recommended limits, but in a “socially acceptable” way. The sneaky drinks you don’t really notice – a couple of glasses of wine of an evening, midweek drinks, a few more at the weekend. Alcohol is alcohol – whether that’s wine with dinner, G&Ts after work, or shots on a night out. It still does the same damage. What’s heartening though is that actually we’re starting to see changes – generations who don’t see alcohol as quite so central to a social life, or an essential evening activity. It’s through spreading messages like this one of yours though that keep this positive change going 🙂

    This is such an eye opener, you really don’t think about it until its written down in black and white. I barely drink anymore because hangovers are horrific for my mental health, the odd pint is fine for me but anything more than that makes me crazy!!

    It is great to see you posting about something like this!!

    Really interesting post, sweets. I’m very good at saying no – took me some practice back in the day, but now I am the queen of the softies a fair amount of the time. Find it means when I do have a bevvy I enjoy it more, too.

    It’s so funny that I discovered this today, because I just posted a similar post on my own blog. I totally agree with everything you said. So many young people (including myself) have trouble adjusting to regular drinking habits after college. Ive been reluctant to admit I have a “problem,” but once I did, I was able to tackle it a lot more honestly.

    Good post. I think there’s a lot of peer pressure too. Some people who are drinking don’t like when their friends don’t drink with them and can give you a hard time

    I’ve been thinking about this for a while so I wanted to see if anyone else could see the destructive patterns and that’s how I came across this post. You’ve done a fantastic job of bringing attention to this without ‘preaching’ and I think that’s very important!
