2.5 million Britons smash through weekly drink limit in single night

“What is really worrying is this belief that exists that alcohol is relatively safe, even at binge levels, so people are ‘rewarding’ themselves with large quantities.

“We have got to change the culture where reward equates to storming the bars to binge drink, or drinking excessively at home on a regular basis, because of the serious health issues in the years to come.

“Unfortunately having a good time is still synonymous for many with getting drunk.

“At the Priory we see people who consume alcohol in bars and pubs as if they were visiting Starbucks for a coffee.

“For young people, we see them drinking alcohol like water, just to rehydrate.

“For older people, often under considerable work and financial stress, there is more solitary binge drinking which is also highly dangerous, because there is no one keeping a check on levels.

“There’s this common feeling among people we see of ‘keep calm and carry on – and keep drinking.’

It has created an atmosphere whereby people who once enjoyed an occasional glass of wine now finish a bottle and sometimes open another.

“One former patient said she could remember the panic that she would not have enough bottles, so she switched to wine boxes, then cases.”
