AN EXPERT on alcohol in Edinburgh has urged people not to be afraid to seek help on alcohol addiction, regardless of their social class or lifestyle.

Jonathan Chick, a professor at Queen Margaret University, said with Alcohol Awareness Week having just passed, now is the perfect time for people to face up to their intake.

He said: “Every single death from alcohol is a tragedy. We hope people will take the opportunity this year to either seek help for themselves or get the help they need for a friend or family member they are worried about.”
