Brits Drown Their Sorrows

February 1, 2007

Nearly one in three Britons hits the bottle to deal with stress, it has been claimed.

A study by The Samaritans says 32% of those asked admitted to drinking to cope with pressures in their lives – compared to just 23% in 2003.

Almost seven in 10 people said they were irritable through stress, and more than half said it kept them awake at night.
