Publisher's Synopsis

Alcohol causes more misery, illness and death than any other substance. Alcohol is one of the three biggest lifestyle risk factors for disease and death after smoking and obesity, and a causal factor in more than 60 medical conditions, including various cancers, cirrhosis depression. In the UK in 2012-13, there were 1,008,850 hospital admissions related to alcohol consumption. Dying for a Drink is a no-nonsense, lively and accessible guide to alcohol and alcoholism, by bestselling consultant psychiatrist Dr Tim Cantopher. This new edition updates the recommended units of alcohol, and tracks the rise in alcohol-related conditions - in particular liver disease, now the fifth most common cause of death in the UK. Topics include:

· alcohol the drug
· why people drink too much
· the effects of past experience, family and personality
· impact of alcohol abuse on the body and brain
· cutting down on or doing without drink
· sleep and relaxation
· problem-solving, time-management, and dealing with worry
· drug treatments
