No. 1 Magazine - - WELL-BEING -

At the end of a stress­ful week, most of us reach for our favourite tip­ple, usu­ally a bot­tle of vino. A glass? Maybe two? And be­fore we know it, the bot­tle is empty. Per­fectly nor­mal, right? Right. And it’s not do­ing us any harm, is it? Wrong, it is. Did you know that al­co­hol causes more than 60 health prob­lems? In fact, 10,199 Scot­tish women were treated in hospi­tal be­cause of it, in 2014-15 – that’s the equiv­a­lent to 28 women every day! And let’s not for­get, al­co­hol can also kill. In 2015 it claimed the lives of more than 1,000 peo­ple in Scot­land – 386 of them women. So if you’re think­ing of cut­ting back this month or for the longterm as one of your New Year’s res­o­lu­tions, read on for more in­for­ma­tion.
