Couples' Drinking Survey
Attitudes to own and partner's drinking among people in couples where at least one partner drinks more than the low risk drinking guidelines.
In December 2016, Drinkaware conducted an online panel survey through Research Now of 2,000 adults, all of whom were in a relationship where at least one of the couple was drinking more than the low risk alcohol of 14 units a week.
Respondents were asked about their own and their partner’s drinking behaviours and if they were concerned about their partner’s alcohol consumption. Respondents were also asked if they or their partner had intentions to cut down on their consumption and what barriers might prevent them from doing so.
