The rise of the weekend alcoholic. Here's an informative post for you. It's a genuine trend that is misunderstood. A habit that can be really damaging to you, your business and those close to you. Ask yourself these 5 questions: ⭕ Do you ever lie about your drinking? ⭕ Do you struggle to stop after 1/2 drinks? ⭕ Do you prioritise alcohol over other life events? ⭕ Are you a different person when you drink alcohol? ⭕ Do you regularly have memory loss after a weekend session? There is a misunderstanding of the damage that binge drinking at the weekend can cause. Let me share 5 key statistics: 1️⃣ 24% of adults in England and Scotland regularly drink over the Chief Medical Officer’s low-risk guidelines 2️⃣ 27% of drinkers in Great Britain binge drink on their heaviest drinking days (over 8 units for men and over 6 units for women) 3️⃣ In England, there are an estimated 602,391 dependent drinkers, of whom 82% are not receiving treatment 4️⃣ Alcohol misuse is the biggest risk factor for death, ill-health and disability among 15-49 year-olds in the UK, and the fifth biggest risk factor across all ages 5️⃣ Alcohol is a causal factor in more than 60 medical conditions, including: mouth, throat, stomach, liver and breast cancers; high blood pressure, cirrhosis of the liver; and depression In my own experience I speak to a lot of people who believe that not drinking in the week and then heavy consumption at the weekend is a healthy relationship. I'm here to say - that really isn't the case. Being honest with yourself has to be your starting point. Dealing with an unhealthy relationship with alcohol will be the single best thing you ever do for yourself and those around you. The benefits are life changing. Are you alcohol free? What can benefits can you share? 👇 ACTION ➡️ MOMENTUM ➡️ RESULTS 👋🏼 👋🏼 👋🏼 👋🏼 👋🏼 👋🏼 👋🏼 👋🏼 👋🏼 👋🏼 👋🏼 👋🏼 I am Chris Howe, an ex Recruitment Director facilitating the growth of high potential Senior Execs and business owners - alcohol, lifestyle, mindset & business.
