Since news broke of the new lockdown, some have rushed to say that 'Dry January is cancelled.' I get it - when things feel tough, the last thing you want is something else that feels tough. On top of that, lots of us have used alcohol as our go-to treat over the past year - something we can enjoy even in the depths of lockdown.
Alcohol sales have risen significantly since the outbreak of the pandemic and research suggests that around 8.6 million UK adults have drunk alcohol more frequently under lockdown.
Worryingly, nearly 18% of daily drinkers have increased the amount of alcohol they consume and the effects of drinking more alcohol could be felt for a generation, some experts warn.
Why does it matter?
Alcohol intake - and its management - is particularly important for well-being & mental health during this pandemic.
In a survey 7% of respondents felt that alcohol had worsened their household tensions since lockdown.
Whilst alcohol can help us relax and give us a brief feeling of euphoria, the effects are short-lived and the long-term negative consequences of over-using alcohol can be harmful.
If you rely on alcohol to manage your mental health issues, that reliance can itself become a problem.
You may well find that your drinking gets in the way of other activities and puts a strain on your relationships and your work.
