Over 16,700 people were surveyed and of these respondents over half, aged 65 and over, believe that people with an alcohol problem have themselves to blame. Nearly a quarter think they should feel ashamed. The five most frequently reported reasons for those who drink more now than in the past are age-related. These include retirement, bereavement, loss of sense of purpose, fewer opportunities to socialise and finances.
