By Press Association

People would much prefer to unwind with a bottle of wine than spend time with their children or partner, according to a snapshot survey.

Some 61% of adults said drinking was their top choice after a stressful day, while 28% said spending time with their children helped them relax and 26% opted for talking with their partner.

The small poll of 825 adults, for the industry-funded charity Drinkaware, found people battle stress with up to four drinks on a typical evening at home.

More women than men (73% versus 26%) said stress was the main reason they had a drink at home at the end of the day, and 73% of women said they typically pour themselves a glass of wine to relax.
