Example text

DIANE: One pint of weak beer a day is all I can have? More than this isn’t safe? JOHN: I wouldn’t recommend drinking every day, and fewer than 14 units would be a healthier target . . DIANE: Oh dear, I do have a drink problem . . 12 THE MAGPIE PROFESSION JAMES: In fact you probably don’t. And I feel I ought to mention that John is using old advice on safe drinking levels. DIANE: What do you mean? JAMES: The government advice on sensible drinking was revised in the mid-nineties. Safe levels were raised to 28 units for males and 21 for females, and the advice is now being offered a bit more subtly ^ the official view is that people should think in terms of daily benchmarks for their drinking, taking account of their tolerance, weight and general physical condition.

With a drinking problem there is much to be considered, and a lot would depend on how bad it is. If you were a confirmed alcoholic we would be looking at a medically managed programme, detoxification, time in a DDU and so on. But assuming you were not in that state but were just worried about the level of your drinking, then we would want first to establish what your attitude is, and how you behave. When do you drink? With whom? How much at one time? What do you know? How much are you in control of what you do?

I don’t think it’s really a question of you adjusting your behaviour to avoid disease, Diane ^ it’s a question of you being empowered to make the choices that are right for you ^ and there are hundreds of ways to do that. In the end you’ve got to be able to think critically about your value system. And Martin, for one thing Diane’s a journalist ^ journalists tend to drink, you know? If that’s her culture then you can’t go round imposing the values of your culture onto her . . MARTIN: (Abruptly) She won’t be able to do much journalism with advanced liver failure.
