Dr Max Pemberton, The Daily Mail's Mind Doctor, publishes today.
He states that he believes that self-medicating for insomnia with booze only stores up more problems for the future. A study stated this week that one in four people use alcohol to enable sleep. Max says that, although this may seem to work - by leading to sleep - it does not allow people to go through the complete sleep cycle. Therefore it is not refreshing sleep and leads to morning grogginess.
Dr Max also states that he is not a believer in using alcohol to self -medicate for depression. As alcohol is a depressant itself this will only lead to burying it for a while,and store up more problems for the future.
Max believes that the problems of insomnia and depression should be dealt with by experts.
