A Look into Men and Women's Drinking Habits in 2023 in the UK and How Bee Sober CIC Can Help

The United Kingdom is a country with a long and proud history of alcohol consumption. Although a recent report from Public Health England shows that alcohol consumption has declined by 16.4 per cent since 2013, there is still a lot of work to be done in order to promote responsible drinking habits.

With this in mind, the charity Bee Sober CIC has set out to help tackle the issues of excessive drinking in the UK. The CIC provides a range of initiatives aimed at tackling alcohol-related problems and promoting responsible drinking.

The most recent statistics from 2019 show that, while overall drinking habits have declined in the UK, men are still drinking more than women. On average, men are drinking around 17.1 units per week, compared to women who are drinking just 8.4 per week.

It is also interesting to note that, since 2013, men's weekly consumption has dropped by just 8.9 per cent, compared to women's declining by 19.1 per cent. This is especially concerning given that alcohol-related harm has been shown to be higher among men than it is among women.

Fortunately, the efforts of Bee Sober CIC are helping to reduce these drinking habits among both men and women in the UK. The charity offers a range of initiatives to encourage responsible drinking, such as its nationwide awareness campaigns and its range of support services.

The community interest company set up by best Friends Lisa Elsworth and Alexandria Walker has also seen success in its workplace talks across the UK. By working with these businesses, Bee Sober CIC has been able to spread its message to a wider audience and has even seen a reduction in excessive drinking in some areas.

Bee Sober CIC's work is helping to reduce the prevalence of alcohol-related harm in the UK, and its efforts will be even more important in the coming years. With men and women still drinking more than is recommended, the CIC's initiatives will be critical in order to ensure that UK drinking habits remain responsible in 2023 and beyond.
