Is the pandemic affecting your drinking?
If you feel that the Covid-19 pandemic has affected your alcohol intake, you won’t be the only one. A Royal College of Psychiatrists survey found that in June, more than 8.4m people in England were drinking at higher-risk levels, significantly higher than the 4.8m reported in February before the lockdown.
The alcohol support charity Drinkcoach was founded in Haringey. It offers an online test for you to check your drinking level; if you are drinking at higher risk levels, you can sign up to receive Skype sessions to discuss your alcohol use and address any problems.
Once you complete the questionnaire and receive your score, you can then download an app and access online appointments to discuss your alcohol intake or gain support for reducing your alcohol consumption. You can take the test here.
