Men’s health: Addiction

Men are 3 times more likely than women to become addicted to alcohol and many men still smoke, despite the health risks.

Alcoholism means you’re addicted to alcohol and can’t function without it. It can cause social problems and health problems such as liver damage and cancers.

Over 100,000 people in the UK die each year because of smoking and about half of all smokers die from smoking-related diseases including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cancers and heart disease.
