This week: Name Your Poison: 2: The British Alcoholic
In Britain today there are at least half a million alcoholics-some ignorant of the illness from which they suffer; others, ashamed and afraid, hiding it from family, friends, and employers.
Industry alone has to face a bill estimated at Â£50 million a year in lost output. Are employers facing up to this fact too slowly? Are they slow to recognise the significance of the 'Monday-morning hangover', which keeps hundreds from work? Are they slow to reach out to help the executive who is drink-fuddled through most of the day?
Is the drinking executive only steps away from the meths men? What research is being done to find out about the disease and to collate information about treatment methods? In this the last of a two-part enquiry, Man Alive tries to find out.
