Belatedly following up on your 14 June issue, readers who feel that they have problems with alcohol or drugs would be well advised to phone one of these numbers:

Alcoholics Anonymous: 0845-7697 555

Narcotics Anonymous: 0845-3733 366

I have personal experience of this as a former problem drinker – AA worked for me, and I’m glad I found the solution. Indeed, AA and NA are virtually guaranteed to work for anyone.
