The New York Times (5/26, Cramer) reports addiction experts say that people who are drinking more during the pandemic may develop drinking problems that they did not have before. The New York Times adds that “alcohol sales have spiked” and “addiction experts say they are worried” that habits developed during the pandemic “could also trigger more serious drinking problems and even create new ones for people who have never struggled with alcohol dependency before.” For example, Dr. Sarah Wakeman, an addiction medicine physician at Massachusetts General Hospital, said, “I expect we’re going to see pretty significant increases in what I call unhealthy alcohol use, which means drinking above recommended limits.” (SOURCE: APA Headlines)
