Adrian Chiles: Star was on the brink of liver disease due to alcohol – 'cannot carry on'


“The rest of the time, I now realised, I was drinking for the sake of drinking, due to social pressure, insecurity or, most often, because I couldn’t think of anything else to do. Madness.

“Some days, and even weeks, I don’t do so well, but I’ve learnt not to berate myself and give up trying. I just refocus and get things back on track.”

Drinking large amounts of alcohol in a short space of time can harm your health both in the short-term and the long-term. Of course, the long-term effects of alcohol drinking are far more serious, and can put individuals at risk of the following:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Liver disease
  • Liver cancer
  • Bowel cancer
  • Mouth cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Pancreatitis.

But the shorter-term effects should not be underestimated. The NHS explains that people who binge drink (drink heavily over a short period of time) are more likely to behave recklessly and are at greater risk of being in an accident.
