THREE in ten Brits are worried about a loved one’s booze habit.
The figure has nearly doubled since the summer of 2021.
Experts say the end of Covid restrictions means more nights on the town, especially in young adults.

Pals are the most likely cause for concern, followed by partners and parents, according to a report by campaigners Drinkaware.
But CEO Karen Tyrell said: “There are things we can do to help.”
These include planning drink-free days or using the Drinkaware app to help keep the habit under control.
Four in ten people surveyed said someone’s drinking has impacted their life this year.
The most common problem was being kept awake at night.
Other complaints were alcohol- fuelled arguments, emotional hurt or feeling let down.
The NHS says we should not drink more than 14 units — six pints of beer or six medium glasses of wine — each week.
But 30 per cent of men and 15 per cent of women exceed the target.
