In the Netherlands, more than 85% of the adult population drinks alcohol and people aged 55 to 70 drink an average of 7.5 glasses of alcohol per week. Alcohol use among over-55s is on average higher than among young people and they drink more often on a daily basis. Because people over 55 generally have more free time, they drink both during the week and at the weekend.
In general, it appears that most users of alcohol know little about the effects and possible health risks of alcohol.
Here are some questions. You can see what you know about this or recognize it in yourself.
Drinking more than you intended to is also known as loss of control. Loss of control is one of the effects of alcohol. Alcohol numbs a certain part of the brain (the frontal cortex). When this part is sedated, disinhibition occurs which can have different effects on people. For example, it may be that one starts drinking more or becomes emotional more quickly. Moti-55 can help you get a grip on your alcohol consumption.
