Not surprisingly, most people drink to deal with stress – a recent study has found.
The survey of almost 6000 respondents between the ages of 18 and 75, found that 47 per cent of people drank to cheer themselves up while 38 per cent drank to forget about their problems. This was the same for male and female drinkers.
The study was conducted by Drinkaware over a couple weeks between March and April 2017.
Researchers discovered that three in five people admit to drinking alcohol to help handle the pressures of daily lives.
