Did you know that next week (14-20 November) sees the start of alcohol awareness week?
An initiative run by Alcohol Concern (you know them- the founders of Dry January!) which aims to raise awareness of the risks of alcohol to your health.
With facts such as ‘Alcohol related harm costs England around £21bn per year, with £3.5bn to the NHS, £11bn tackling crime & £7.3bn from lost work days’ and ‘Alcohol is a causal factor in more than 60 medical conditions, cancers; high blood pressure, and depression’ it’s easy to begin to build a picture of why this week is so important.
Another shocking statistic from the Department of Transport is ‘almost 1 in 5 drink related accidents happen the morning after.’
In support of this campaign we are offering our talkhealth community the chance to receive 1 of 10 home breathalyser kits.
