Date:2/1/2008

LONDON, February 1 /PRNewswire/ -- It is not only joy and goodwill that epitomise Christmas and the New Year. It is also stress, unrealistic expectations, letdowns, tension and, not least, drinking and partying.

This can be one of the worst times of the year for someone with alcohol issues: office parties, family parties, neighbours' parties; it goes on and on.

He added that, "someone with alcohol issues would find it very difficult to manage on their own and they really need support. Even if they have made it through the holiday period January leaves many people feeling low.
