Named most drinkers profession
Well-earning professionals, such as doctors, lawyers and teachers, more likely to drink regularly compared to people with average income. This is stated in the records of the Digital NHS and the National statistical service of great Britain, the data leads The Guardian.
As it turned out, the number of users of alcohol is steadily increasing with increasing socioeconomic status. The last thing people drank in the week before the survey — 51 percent — was among people engaged in physical or simple labor, including laborers, employees or registry of social workers.
Among managerial staff or highly qualified employees (including architects, nurses, teachers, lawyers, doctors), this figure reaches 70 percent, notes the Daily Mail.
There is a connection to annual earnings. Thus, the use of alcohol admitted 46.5% of getting less than 11 thousand per year. Among earning 22-34 thousand euros British figure was 60 percent. At the same time, people whose annual income exceeds 45 thousand euros, love to drink wine, beer or whiskey and can afford it. Among them, more than 80 percent reported drinking in the week before the survey.
In the report it is noted that-how often people drink, also depends on the age. Among the respondents, the fifth part was actually sober: mainly aged 25 to 64 years.
Those who often consume alcohol were older than 65 years. Young people often drink only on Friday and Saturday, but more than all the rest.
The most dangerous is the consumption of alcohol by people in middle age.
“Drinkers of the middle class are unlikely to pay attention to government warnings about the dangers to health, as it can be less prone to excessive drinking and can withstand higher prices,” said Manager therapy alcohol addiction Steve Clark.
According to him, people over 45 drink more often, but I do not believe are at risk. Often they are so “relieve stress” or just succumb to promotions in stores. As a result, they drink alcohol four to six days a week. Clark pointed out that in ten years the number of hospital admissions related to booze, jumped 17 percent.
