Commenting on actor Brad Pitt’s recent discussion of alcohol and its effects, Drinkaware Chief Executive Elaine Hindal said:

 

“Brad Pitt’s candid admission of the role that alcohol has played in his life will resonate with many people and his decision to look at alcohol’s effects on his health, wellbeing and relationships is to be applauded.

 

“Drinking too much can make it more difficult to stay in control of emotions which can lead to people arguing and saying things that they later come to regret.  

 

"But arguments after drinking alcohol may also reveal underlying problems in a relationship and it should never be used as an excuse for bad behaviour.

 

“Drinkaware are committed to helping people to make better and informed decisions about their use of alcohol.”
