About Our Site

AlcoholIssues was formed to offer a unique reference point on the facts about alcohol abuse and alcohol in society.

Issues relating to alcohol seem to hit the headlines almost daily. Perhaps most worryingly of all, it is often suggested that there simply isn't enough understanding of the effects and dangers of alcohol among those that drink it.

At Alcohol Issues, we publish exclusive pieces in order to provide vital information to those wishing to know more about the short and long-term effects of alcohol. Our articles are not merely limited to discussing the effects of alcohol on the body. We also have features looking at the relationship between alcohol and society, and the indirect effects that widespread alcohol use and abuse is having in Britain.

Equally, if you are concerned that you might have an alcohol dependency problem, or you know someone who might be an alcoholic and wish to help, this is the site for you. We have compiled the best and most practical advice to help you, or someone you care about, combat their difficulty with this ever-popular, powerful drug.

At Alcohol Issues, we also recognise that, when taken in moderation by responsible adults, alcohol can compliment social occasions, and has a role to play in a civilised society. Our task is to evaluate the numerous pros and cons of alcohol, and give you everything you need to make well-informed decisions about drinking.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.

Our Background

AlcoholIssues was founded by John Rowlinson, the founder of PtS.

John, through PtS, is involved in a number of ventures including software and property companies. A percentage of revenue from these activities goes towards funding AlcoholIssues and a number of similar sites.

Our focus is simply on having experts create the highest quality information possible that is widely read.
