Alcohol Help

It is said that more and more professional people are needed alcoholism help, it is said that they are more likely to develop alcohol problems than the “blue collar” workers or unemployed.  Medical workers are said to be three times more likely than the general population to need alcohol help in their lifetime. People working in law are also said to be at very high risk with 24% expecting to need alcohol help during the time of their careers.

 So what is to blame for these problems?

The problems are said to have risen from cheap alcohol in supermarkets, it is not uncommon now to finish a day’s work, go home and open a bottle of wine especially with the price of it being so low. It is not always the street drinkers or young people who go out at the weekend and get drunk that are the ones which need alcohol help because they tend to limit their drinking habits only to the weekends where as having a bottle of wine every night can cause major problems for a person.

Alcohol can distress a person and therefore with people feeling more pressure at work due to the recession with tighter deadlines and increased workloads having a drink can seem like the perfect way to unwind. A drink every day after work can stack up through the week and people do not realise the effects this can have.

What to do about this problem?

Work-places need to be supportive to their staff and make them feel comfortable about talking to their boss about issues especially if they feel under pressure.
