Many of us like to unwind with a nice glass of something. But it’s funny how drink sneaks up on us. The odd glass in the evening can quickly become two or three regular glasses, most evenings. Too much alcohol is bad news for your appearance, odour, brain, heart, liver and your relationships.
For support with an alcohol problem please phone Torbay Alcohol Service 01803 604334 or talk to us.
