People who enjoy drinking at home are being warned that its effects can be as devastating as going to the pub.

I would have thought this was obvious, excessive drinking is never good and causes physical, psychological and social harm.

Excessive drinking at home must be as bad if not worse than social drinking.

Time and effort should be spent looking at why people, particularly the young destroy themselves and their families with alcohol.
