Alcohol - are you a social drinker?


First off, please accept my apologies for this unusual post. I write for the NHS Choices website (www.nhs.uk). I’m looking to interview someone who has developed health problems as a result of regularly drinking above recommended alcohol levels. I'm not looking for a heavy drinker, rather, I'm looking for someone who might describe themselves as a regular drinker. For a man, this would mean regularly drinking more than 3-4 units a day. Please send me a direct message if you'd like to be involved. Cheers.

That could be a lot of people. i grew up in Europe so i have a couple cans of German Pils a night after Pilates and Zumba! it all depends sometimes less sometimes more.


My twin brother, whilst he would not be likely to want an interview: aged 53 & binge drinks. This year diagnosed atrial fibrillation (AF). He has had medical and chemical ablation therapy, then recently further problems with AF and also needing surgery for blocked arteries in legs ( ex smoker too).
