There are lots of different reasons why people drink, and no two reasons are ever exactly the same.
For an adult, a small amount of alcohol every so often is fine to drink. Many people all over the world enjoy alcohol. Some people say it is to help them to relax, to help them socialise, or because they enjoy it. Some people drink alcohol because they have to, as it makes them feel better and stops them from feeling sick if they have drank too much alcohol the day before.
A small amount of alcohol taken sensibly is ok. Lots of people do it. However unfortunately for some people, they are unable or don’t want to drink small sensible amounts.
However no matter the reason why people drink alcohol
– it is NEVER YOUR FAULT
Sometimes, reasons for a drink turn into excuses to get drunk. See if any sound familiar.
- “I’ve had a tough day”
- “I haven’t got work tomorrow”
- “The sun is shining”
- “I’m out with my mates”
- “I need to get in the mood to socialise”
- “I’ve got friends coming round”
- “I’ve just been paid”
