I work with people whose lives have been affected by alcohol, so when I saw this film on the BBC website I was very moved.  It’s part of a report on a children’s news programme which suggests that nearly a third of children are scared when they see adults drunk or drinking heavily and that half of 1,234 children surveyed had seen their parents drunk.

I’m not opposed to alcohol (I enjoy a social drink) but I am distressed to see the impact of uncontrolled drinking on the lives of people I care about.  The lives of children and of adults.
