I have to admit I was surprised to see this headline, that as a population the UK are drinking less, particularly when the largest decrease is in the younger generation. That has to be good news. Some things never change though and the graph showing that alcohol consumption goes up with income is quite profound. I guess we think we deserve a drink if we have work pressures or continually feel 'stressed'. As always, it's those of us who can't stop at one who have to make the biggest changes to stay well. Happy reading.
