Alcohol & COVID-19 – Addiction treatment centre shows why excessive drinking must stop now

The overindulgence of food, alcohol, drugs, shopping and promiscuous behaviour are all somehow acceptable if they come under the umbrella of ‘Christmas’.

A Very “Merry” Family Christmas

Family dynamics are tricky to navigate at any time of the year, however at Christmas they can become all but impossible.

This is all very good news for game developers and the top players who make money out of it, but is there a flip-side to this? Is it possible that there is a dark side to the popularity of gaming, and how could it be damaging people?

What are the Odds? Will Football Give Up Gambling?

It is now nearly impossible to watch a game of football without seeing logos of gambling websites on players’ shirts. In fact, 60% of top two division teams are sponsored by them. There is no doubt that sport and gambling are intrinsically linked, and have been forever. But has it become more sinister than the days of your grandfather going down to the bookies to lay a fiver on his favourite team?
