Drinking too much alcohol is a growing problem across the UK population.

Alcohol problems do not mean stereotypical alcoholism or dependency. Now and then a culture at work or perhaps a social circle that involves a lot of alcohol consumption can set up an alcohol related problem.

For many people the weekend splurge is worrying them and they want to reduce how much they drink during those weekend binges.
