Problem Drinking in Northern Ireland - Belfast Telegraph Report

A Belfast Telegraph report earlier this year (2012) on research compiled on behalf of the Department Of Health has claimed that nearly one in ten people in Northern Ireland could have a problem with alcohol.

The research was based on interviews with more than 2000 people and measured interviewees response to four statements.

1. I have felt that i ought to cut down on my drinking

2. People have annoyed me by criticising my drinking

3. I have felt alarmed or guilty about my drinking

4. I have had a drink first thing in the morning to steady my nerves or get rid of a hangover.

 

The report suggested that if interviewees agreed with two or more of the above statementrs then it was highly likely they had a problem with alcohol.
