Today Vic and Lucy are trying to understand why drinking can sometimes retreat behind closed doors. Is it because of parenting woes, because of shame or because people feel safer in the confines of their own four walls? What really causes people to hide away and what are the warning signs that your drinking has spiralled out of control?
Today they discuss the somewhat-warped mindset that comes with drinking at home and, most importantly, what to do if you’re sinking a bottle of Sav from the perceived safety of your sofa. Join them as they discover the dangers of drinking behind closed doors.
Oh, and don't miss Vic's DJ debut blooper featured at the end!
