Round up of media coverage of Alcohol Awareness Week

Last week UK Alcohol Awareness Week seemed to have two main focuses: the older drinker and the young.  I wrote about the impact on the older generation here.

Media coverage and stories aimed at young people:

Drink and Drugs: My Story – BBC programme

The science of how alcohol and other drugs affect the body is explored through eight real-life stories, highlighting how behaviour can change dramatically as a result of drinking alcohol or taking other drugs on BBC3 and aimed at 14-18 year olds | BBC, UK

Alcohol awareness – BBC iPlayer

Your life, your problems, your loves, your Surgery. Radio 1’s Aled and Dr Radha discuss drinking for Alcohol Awareness Week | BBC iPlayer, UK

Lost Day’s Henry Maybury

All good stuff.  I said before that I would go back to posting every other day but I’ve got content coming out of my ears!  It’s going to take me until the New Year to clear the backlog so it’s going to be daily posts for another month 🙂

PS On Monday it’s Cyber Monday as the Christmas season begins.  My Udemy course will be on offer at half price between now and New Years Day, so for $25 (£15.50).  If you’re looking for a surprise treat for your holiday season sober first aid kit, the brilliant idea from Living Sober (amazeballs Mrs D and SueK!) or would like to forgo a bottle of Christmas spirit this year then this could be for you!!  Click HERE for discounted access to the course or click on the link at the top of the sidebar 🙂
