The Reality Bites documentary strand returns to cover the stories and issues that fascinate and challenge Irish people today. Programme looks at the increasingly serious relationship between Irish women and alcohol. Like a lot of women her age, producer, broadcaster and journalist Maia Dunphy likes a drink, isn't averse to having a 'few too many' and would sometimes have a glass of wine or three at home on a school night. Here she takes a candid look at her personal drinking habits; particularly in the light of research from Alcohol Action Ireland which reports that Irish women's intake of alcohol has been rising steadily since 1995, and alarmingly since 2005.
