Dr Florence says…

Just because it’s the weekend does not mean we should shoot down the shots.

Alcohol is great for helping people relax. Possibly why many of us enjoy a tipple or two. However according to psychologist Professor McMurran alcohol impairs our anxiety response.

Great? Well no not actually. Anxiety is a safety feature and without it we are less enabled to run away and escape certain situations. Hence why alcohol is actually the most common and abused date rape drug.

So stay safe and stay ‘relatively’ sober says Dr F.
