Alcohol – Britain’s Most Harmful Drug | Drugs Map of Britain

By Brian Lemay 100 comments

PHONE RINGS Alcohol delivery. You just
called us? Is that you trying to work out my
alcohol? It’s fucking lovely. Cos alcohol’s my best friend. Do you
want to get yourself arrested? Go on, then, arrest me. Do you know
how drunk you are? Fuck off. I’m not going to accept that just
because you’re drunk. No. 20 quid for eight beers? Ha-ha! Cheers! Wow. Looks like you’ve got a lot of
champagne in there. Jesus. In four months there’s been three
people that have passed away. Look at me. I’m a nervous
wreck here. INDISTINCT CHATTER Sorry, I can’t stay still. Don’t
know what’s wrong with me. Ah, dear. Is it cos you need a drink? Yes. I mean, I’ve got no money, and I hate it. I hate when I’m like this. Can’t stay still. You all right, there, Des? When you end up in hospital,
sometimes you just want to give up. Especially when you’ve lost your
loved ones. I’ve lost all my family. I’ve got two kids and that,
but nobody gives a monkeys, you know what I mean? They don’t like me drinking. Probably a strong cider,
strong lager. Tenner a day, you’re done. Most of our residents do have an
alcohol addiction, yeah. Want to sign for me? There’s yours. All right, Colin? Thank you very much. All
right, mate. ‘We’re just doing daily alcohol. ‘Some people get them at eight. Most
people get them at ten,’ depending on how dependent they are. You’re welcome, you’re welcome. ‘Part of the reason that we give out
cans is to try and reduce ‘the risk of withdrawal and
everything that goes with it, ‘like seizures. And also, I suppose,
some of our residents’ are seriously reduced in
their mobility, and so getting to the shop can be
quite a problem for them, and that would be quite dangerous if
they couldn’t access the alcohol that they needed. There you go. Thank you.
All right, mate. ‘You could describe it as
harm minimisation. ‘If they are going to drink, ‘then at least drink something
that’s not so harmful as, like, ‘the super-strength alcohol, which, ‘it’s not just alcohol – there’s ‘chemical components in there
that just’ really damage your organs really
badly, quite significantly. And I think the most worrying thing,
as well, is that these cans are usually about £1 a can and,
for me, that rings alarm bells. If something’s cheap, why is it
cheap, you know? A lot of times when I’m
describing the job, a lot of people are still
so surprised by it. They ask the ins and outs of the
job, like, “How does it work?” I said, “It’s literally just like
ordering a pizza, “but it’s alcohol and
cigarettes instead.” Literally. You’d be surprised – I’m getting
orders on a Monday morning at 7am, and I was like, “Shouldn’t
you be getting ready for work?” It doesn’t make any sense. This is the expensive stuff. How you doing? Are you all right?
You all right? Cash? Cash, yeah? HE LAUGHS INDISTINCT CHATTER Sounds like you’ve got more than one
girlfriend in there. It’s not fair! No! INDISTINCT It’s 204.15, yeah? Sorry? Her ex-boyfriend was telling her…
You don’t need the gym, no. 100% sure. You don’t need the gym.
Don’t listen to him. Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas to
you. Have a good night, all right? Yeah, I’m sure. HE LAUGHS He’s got more than one girlfriend in
there. She was stunning. So, I think he’s living the lifestyle that we would like
to live… ..but some of us got to
deliver alcohol. £20 tip. Lovely for Christmas. We’re proud to be British. Bam!
LAUGHTER I’ve had a lot to drink…
LAUGHTER Cos alcohol’s my best friend. Oi oi! Oi, it’s Charlie Bear. INDISTINCT SINGING Father, we thank you for the
honour of serving you, and we pray this evening, Lord. We pray for a night of joy and
people having a good time. Mm. We just put tonight in your arms,
in his name. ALL: Amen. There may be people having work
Christmas parties this evening, so that’s something to consider. It’s what we’ve sort of being saying
the last couple of weeks. See you later. I’m a street pastor. And we go out in Kingston and in other towns round the
country, just making sure that the
youngsters that go out to the towns during the Friday and Saturday
nights are safe. Eh… Just some chicken. 1.40. Past your bedtime. You should be
home in bed. SHE LAUGHS My goodness. What are you doing out
at this time of night? If we come across any that are very
drunk and need help, then we will give it to them. ‘Fuck off!’ What’s the matter? Eh? He was
really horrible! You’re freezing, darling. Luke? Have we got a space blanket? You ask the doorman to call us. And what’s your…? Like,
who do I say? We’re street pastors. Street pastors. If you need us to
come back. Thank you. Oh, no that’s lovely.
You sure? It’s actually so warm. Good night. Merry Christmas.
Yes, and you, darling. I hope they’re not too long. WOMAN CRIES I’ve told her that she can still
report it. It happened last week! Someone just came up to me! Basically, a group of lads hadn’t
even walked past, and they picked me up as a joke and,
like, carried me along… And I thought it was funny, because,
like, they just carried me along. But then they put me down, and one of them, like,
grabbed me… Right in my private area, like… And were these people that you know
or people that you don’t know? People I don’t know. Sorry. I’m sorry. No,
don’t apologise. I’m sorry. No-one’s going to take me seriously! We’re taking you seriously. I don’t think it’s fair that
that happens, no. Because I think the boys would laugh
it off as a joke, whereas it had obviously affected
this lady, you know, drunk or not, quite badly. And it should be understood that
that sort of thing isn’t… Shouldn’t be allowed. I think sometimes the young ladies
it does happen to are probably too drunk to realise, the next morning, what happened. Er… Extra-dry Prosecco. Youngsters take their own booze when
they’re waiting to cue up for the nightclubs. Alcoholics that are wandering around
Kingston collect these bottles up and drink the contents. Probably better for us to get
rid of them as well. It’s not as bad as other peoples’.
I’ve seen other peoples’ rooms. But I can’t be praised for this. HE LAUGHS It’s kind of embarrassing,
in a way. In the other hostels that I’ve
been in, plenty of violence and that, but
nothing so here. Nice day today. Lovely
winter sunshine. Can feel it on my face. In a few weeks, I’m going to be
moved on. So, I know that much. I don’t know where I’m going to go
or where they’re going to put me. They’ve actually suggested that my
best option is to go into detox. I’m just waiting for… Well, I don’t know what I’m waiting
for, to be honest. Erm… I think they said something
about funding. I’m just… Do you want to do detox? For my own good, yeah. The other day
I didn’t have a drink. Well, I had one can, and I didn’t
sleep that night. And I started hallucinating. And it
sounds really weird, but it’s true. I was seeing things that
weren’t there. I was seeing black bags in the
street, thinking it was a person. You know, it’s really weird. It’s a really strange experience. It’s actually terrifying, cos… Cos sometimes you worry because you
think you might have a seizure. And that worries me the most. If I stop drinking, dead,
I might have a seizure. I’ve seen people in other hostels
having seizures, and they’re terrible to watch. You do meet famous people every
now and then, though. Rita Ora whenever she’s in London.
She’s a regular, actually. Um… I’ve met Example. I’ve met Kano. I haven’t personally met, but other
drivers have met Peter Crouch, Heston Blumenthal… Quite a few, quite a few. PHONE RINGS Hi, how can I help? What we got? We’ve got beers, wines, cigarettes,
champagnes, spirits. What were you after,
do you know? Any idea? Yeah, course we’ve got vodka.
Grey Goose, Belvedere… Depends which brand you’re after. Is there any particular
brand you’re after? Cool, one of those. Any mixers with
it? Coke? Our largest order, the one that
we’re most aware of, was £671.50. I mean, they actually spent £1,000
that evening. It was the Brexit winners, on the
referendum night. The main party contacted us after there was the announcement that
they’d won, and they celebrated in
absolute style. They were literally at the
Houses of Parliament. Alcohol delivery. You just called
us? Did you need to place an order? I mean, at one point we had a
disabled lady who’d order alcohol from us every
three or four nights, I suppose. Two bottles of vodka. Because she
couldn’t get to the shops. So, it’s not just for young people
looking to continue their party. Erm, we deal with all walks of life. Do you feel bad about that? The disabled lady? Eh, not being able to get out? Just… Two bottles of vodka
a night seems a lot. Yeah, but it’s every, I would say,
probably four days. Erm… I don’t feel particularly
comfortable about it. But it’s not for me to… It’s not really for me to,
sort of, question how they lead their life. What we are going to do is
reposition Nathaniel from where he is at the moment on the map
up into the West End of London, because we are just coming into peak
time now and, undoubtedly, we’ll get a flood of calls
for the west part of London. There’s a fella here. That’s him. Good. Are you paying cash or card, mate? I’m playing… I think I had a card, but I’m trying to look at what I’ve
got. Two bottles… Two bottles of wine. And then… A pack of Rizla.
And you want to add some beers. Yeah. Can we put some beers
on top of that? It’s a Christmas thing.
It’s a Christmas thing. I don’t do this…
Do I do it every week? I don’t. I’ve done it the last
bloody three weeks. It’s… Seriously, it’s Christmas
stuff. So, what are we doing? If you want
the beers, it’s an extra 20 quid, for eight beers.
20 quid for eight beers? Yeah. Unfortunately. 20 quid for eight
beers. That’s all right. Can I just take the case?
Do you want to take the whole case? It will cost you more.
82 quid for colder beers. That’s what we do. You have a good
night, mate. Take care. We will do. Nice one. Love to everybody. NAT LAUGHS Cheers! He’s having a ‘mare. NAT CHORTLES On to the next one now.
I’ve got another one. The word I get most to describe
myself is, “Oh, you’re a lifesaver.” HE LAUGHS You’ve run out of beers.
All the shops are closed. You’re not ready
to call it a night yet. So in comes Nat, innit,
to save the day. It’s nearly quarter to four. CHUCKLING DANCE MUSIC BOOMS It’s my idea of hell,
going into one of those places. LAUGHTER ‘I did used to come into Kingston,
actually. ‘We used go out and have a drink, ‘but very rarely got drunk.’ ‘Even my children,’ didn’t used to get, you know, so drunk that they couldn’t remember what they… ..couldn’t remember what
they’d done the night before. Erm… ‘Well, I suppose the last ten, ’20 years or so,’ it’s got a lot worse. Jesus! RAISED VOICES Tubby’s just turning
everybody out now, so there’s a lot of people waiting
for cabs and taxis and lifts home. They all seem very jolly tonight. SHE LAUGHS RAISED VOICES ARGUING Oh. ARGUMENT CONTINUES Shall I give them a lolly? Have a lolly. And be friendly.
We’re being friendly. Are you? Are they? Do you know what
they’re arguing about? Do you know what they’re
arguing about? No. RAISED VOICES Do you want to get yourself
arrested? Go on, then, arrest me! Please arrest me. And you cannot touch
me. I am a person. I’m a person. Good night. Good night.
Thank you. OK. Is he all right, this lad? Yeah. It’s just some cleaning. Yeah. BEEPING CHORTLING This the longest lift. It’s only one floor, but it takes forever. Oh, this… Oh, yeah, this is the,
erm, arts room. I dunno if I showed it to you
before. This is the arts room. This is where the residents
do all their art. These pieces here are from a good friend of mine, John,
who recently deceased. They’ve been kept up in his memory,
basically. Erm, all I know is he went out to get a drink and he collapsed and died on Wandsworth Road. Uh, dear. Was he a friend of yours? He was an excellent friend. I’d known him for ten years. We’d been in three
different hostels together. He thought
I was following him about! Bless him. Good old John. Do you think he died
of something related to alcohol? Eh, there’s a very distinct
possibility. ‘When you… When I get
involved with things, like, ‘it keeps me away
from the drink for a bit.’ There’s a… There’s an organisation
up the road, Wicks Lane, and it’s amateur dramatics. I got involved with them
there four years ago. It’s my fourth year in a play. This year, it’s called Home. And it’s about… It’s about street…street life. About residents of a street and everyone’s got
their little role to play. I’m just going
to go and read a poem, or a verse of my poem. It’s going to be really good. Last year, when we were at the
Omnibus Clapham Arts Centre… ..I took a bow and the audience
were clapping for me. That made me feel really happy. And I felt like
I’d achieved something. Hi, Ray. Do you want to come
down for your medication, please? Thank you. I’ve been at Robertson St
for four months now. How many people
have died since then? Three. Possibly four. Do you think people
view alcohol as a drug? No, I don’t think they do,
actually. I don’t think they do. I think they see it
as like as a means to relax, something to enjoy
yourself with and stuff like that. And, erm… No. Not a drug. I don’t think that people see it as something that you can
seriously get addicted to, until you are actually
in that addiction. I can’t believe this! HE CHUCKLES Excuse me, please. Thank you very much. He missed rehearsal and he missed the tech
and the dress this morning, so it is 12th Hour stuff,
but he’s here now and so he will be in the
performance. He will be in the play. I’m sorry about… That’s all right. I’ll probably have
to read my text. No, that’s fine. You will need to do that.
Is that all right? Yeah. We need to get you to
do your bit in front of this fantastic set here. SINGING APPLAUSE Homelessness. What is homelessness? On the outside looking in? Sleeping rough, I cry in silence. Salvation. Sanity. Shelter. APPLAUSE On you come, sir. Oh, Gawd Almighty! I’m going to sit over here… I was so nervous. INDISTINCT SPEECH ..child of the universe. I wasn’t born to shine. Look at me. I’m a nervous wreck
here. Oh, God, I’m terrible. Gawd! HE LAUGHS I can’t believe this! So I’m going to go back to the Robertson Street Project and have a can of beer. It might not be such a good idea, but if I don’t get rid of these
nerves, I’m going to go mad. Do you think you need to have
another drink? Definitely. I’m sorry, I’ve got the shakes. I thought it was nerves,
but I actually have the shakes. No, it’s better if
I just take the edge of myself. I don’t even know
if I’ve got any money on me. I’m skint. Hold on. No, I can’t be skint. That was me. That was me. HE CHUCKLES That was definitely me. I want to stop what I’m doing,
basically. I’m not playing games.
I want to stop what I’m doing. Just get my own place to live, get a job. Maybe it’s a bit too late.
I’m only 47, but… I don’t know.
Do you think 47’s a bit too old? Course I can get a job. I’m just going to the shop there. I’ll just quickly be a minute.
In and out, in and out, in and out. Shake a leg. See, it takes the edge off you when you feel a bit jittery. That’s what I call it – jittery. But the thing is, I mean,
you hear about alcoholics. I mean, yes, I’ll admit
I’ve got a problem with it. That said,
I don’t say I’m an alcoholic. I say I’ve got issues with alcohol. And, erm… But the problem is, I rely on
alcohol to get me through
any day of the week. So…that, my dear friend, is that. HE LAUGHS

I'm not sure what they call "super strength" alcohol, but if they mean hard liquor, 40% alcohol, yeah that will get you a higher blood concentration than you can with beer or cider. If you can get yourself down to cans of beer/cider, you can generally taper off from there.

Life is a meat grinder that consumes other life. If you really want to end suffering it's pretty simple: stop breeding new ppl into the world. The only use we have is in one way or another provide suffering to the universe.

I lived in London and well and truly suffered from alcoholism during my time there. Out of control, I drank 1 bottle of spirit paired with whatever else I could get my hands on throughout the day. A couple of bottles of wine, 10 beers and then some. Quitting was hard and seizures are scary. Today I live in South East Asia, 7 years sober, 2 sons and an amazing life. To anyone out there who is suffering with this disease, stay strong, gain momentum and make it happen. Something amazing is around the corner.

What an ugly drug alcohol is. Alcohol often brings the ugliest side out of people, yet it's legal and cannabis is not. In 2017 7697 people died from Alcohol specific. In 100 years no one has ever died from taking cannabis, what would an alien think to this I wonder. I know cannabis can cause problems, but nothing compared to the scale of alcohol.

It's crazy this world, as a Brit who's a non drinker l sometimes get treated like a social outcast as most social activities in this country revole around drink, it's makes me laugh sometimes when us Brits bang on about the gun issues in America when we have a similar problem here in the UK, both sell a legal product that has a devastating effect on society……

Alcoholism is cunning, baffling and powerful, very sad to see the state of some of these people. Thanks to support workers and volunteers that help suffering addicts.

Cannabis made me suicidal at 16 so I packed it up, cocaine has nearly killed me a few occasions that's an addiction problem I'm working on!! And ecstacy made my organs sieze up so I can't piss because it's very bad for you! And this is no more than 10 hours of consumption with these substances!!!!!! Alcohol does non of these unless u drink vodka and choke on you're own sick!!

I don't understand binge drinking! You drink to feel mellow in order to enjoy your time,why do you need to get drunk out of your friggin' mind! What is there left to enjoy?! Idiots played around by alcohol companies

God bless that young lady at the hostel dishing out the drink. I’d take her on a nice cruise and give her all the foot massages she could handle! She’s an angel and not paid enough. As I say, an absolute angel

The British attitude to alcohol is bizarre. In many ways the public are disgusted by drug use, certainly say heroin or crack or whatever, but alcohol is encouraged to be consumed and the effects of it are rarely thought seriously of.

I remember having my first drink at 14, and my parents at the time were basically like “hahaha you little scamp” whereas when I started smoking cigarettes around that time, my mother completely dressed me down and repeatedly told me how evil it is. (Rightfully so).

My dad was quite a heavy drinker. More of a binge drinker, he’s been known to sink 8,9, 10 pints and drive home. Now, I started to go down the same sort of path, although I would drink spirits and more regularly, say 3,4, 5 times a week. It got to the stage was I was getting pretty tanked most nights of the week and getting up at about 2, vomiting, hardly sleeping after that, then going to work, and repeat the cycle. One night my partner was like “you know, what you’re doing is really bad”. I didn’t even know, and that’s what it does. It creeps up on you without noticing. Now, we have a beautiful baby daughter, and I hardly ever drink. Maybe a couple of glasses of wine with a meal or a measure or so of rum every so often but that’s it. Thank God that I never continued down a path that I was heading, I wouldn’t have what I have now. And also my dad drinks a less now, so that’s something to be thankful for as well.

The street priests have to be the most annoying people when you're drunk. It's like Jehovah witnesses coming up to you on the sidewalk when you're just trying to enjoy your walk or run.
