The blame has been placed squarely on increasing binge drinking, with the traditional image of the lonely alcoholic drinking every day described by experts as ‘dated.’

They say people who had not viewed themselves as having a problem had found prolonged drinking sessions, despite being spaced apart, have fatally damaged their bodies.
