    Lots can relate to that! Me included, well its how I used to be anyway :)

    I think for alot of people, its not about food, its about what they are drinking. Mums drinking bottles of wine of an evening, its "only" wine so its ok right? Nope, its not ok to drink wine! Not a bottle in one sitting a few times a week.

    How is going on a "diet" going to fix this? It wont

    The demons of drink will only get worce, since the worlds in money trouble and supermarkets are selling booze so cheap, people have really been over doing the drink, in the local paper theres a story about a alcoholic 14 year old, how do u get hoooked at that age, he claims he started drinking due to being depressed

    It's not good, but as drinking isn't seen as bad unless you are an alcoholic laying in the gutter. Alcoholics can look normal and hold down jobs and run a family too! Just drinking too much is just as bad and hurts those around you
