    29 Million Days Lost To Drink

    HUNGOVER staff lose business £2.8billion a year - and the cost will rise with 24-hour drinking, a poll said yesterday.

    Each year, 29 million days are swallowed by sickies and slow work caused by a thick head.

    Fifty-one per cent of workers said all-day drinking would be bad for businesses.

    Shop staff said their line of work was most at risk when drinking law relaxes next year.

    More women - 35 per cent - than men - 26 per cent - said a work hangover is acceptable.

    Alcohol Concern said: "Staff who go out drinking excessively are more likely to under-perform or call in sick next day."

    Internet recruitment firm polled 8,450 workers.

    next thing you know, britain will ban alcohol, like they banned guns. let's see where that gets them - we have a bit of experience with banning booze here in the states. doesn't work. banning things doesn't work. banning actions is the only thing you can do.

    The three Martini lunch days have been over for a long time. But alcoholism, like obesity, smoking, etc., does cost business and society a great deal of money. But, I'm afraid it's just the cost of doing business.
