منظمة الصحة العالمية research found drinking starts to increase as soon as people work beyond the standard 40-hour week.

Study author Professor Lode Godderis, from KU Leuven in Belgium, قالت: “We know that having long working hours is stressful وذلك كحول reduces stress.

“Having a drink can make you feel more relaxed and, after a week of long or hard work, you feel like you deserve a treat so we give ourselves a present.”

Data from 105,000 people found those who work 41 ل 48 hours per week consume 10.4g more pure alcohol per week, في المتوسط, than those on a standard 35 ل 40 ساعات.

This rises to 17.7g more than usual for people working 49 ل 54 ساعات, which is around two whole units — equal to an extra pint of weak beer or small glass of wine.

NHS guidelines suggest people should not regularly drink more than 14 units a week — around 112g of pure alcohol.

Prof Goderris said working from home during مرض فيروس كورونا and taking extra jobs in the cash crunch mean growing numbers of people work longer-than-average weeks.

This could lead to more people drinking and harming their health, he warned.
