U.K. TV - Documentary on Alcohol Addiction on now!


Channel 5 are showing a documentary about people’s experience with alcoholism for anyone that is interested in watching. It started at 10pm but if you have +1 you can catch it from the beginning.

It was quite sad and uncomfortable, just people telling their stories. I thought it was helpful to watch anyhow. x

It was very interesting to watch. I'm glad I'm still back in the UK, as it meant I randomly caught it while flicking through channels in the hotel.
I watched with my husband who is a normal sensible drinker. He found it very powerful viewing and now understands why I gave up alcohol. He's always contested me having a problem, but I told him I decided to quit before the problem progressed to the level of those on the show which he now understands.

I watched it too and it was very powerful. Some very clear examples of the downward spiral of alcohol addiction. It also showed what can be achieved through recovery e.g. the guy that was drinking 1000 units a week had made a full recovery.

I watched it too and found his story inspiring! The fact he was in kidney/liver failure or whatever and give a few days to live and managed to turn it all around is amazing
