‘Women drink more due to partners’

4 January, 2017

‘Women drink more due to partners’

One in three women say they would drink less alcohol if it wasn’t for their partner.

New researcher states that 29% claim they would drink far less if it wasn’t for their partner. 

The number of men who said their alcohol intake would be lower if they were single was 16%.

A total of 33% of men admitted they encourage their partners to have one more drink – even when they’ve had enough. 

The figure for women admitting to encouraging men was 15%.

The report says: ‘The current weekly guideline stands at 14 units, but we know that two in five women drink more than this on a regular basis.

‘It is no surprise that 46% of people surveyed are hoping to cut back in the next three months, yet doing so is not as simple as wanting to.’ 

The study surveyed 2000 adults and has been published by Drinkaware, an independent body which runs alcohol awareness campaigns.
