Find out when your local bottle shop is open over the festive period. Jarred Sferruzzi

Want to know which local bottle shops are open?

FOR those who may have struggled to get everything organised this Christmas, we have put together a handy list of all the local bottle shops opening hours, plus a few pubs.

With police targeting drink driving with their usual RBT blitz over the holiday period, we recommend you organise your purchases in advance and implore you to stay off the roads once you have had a few drinks.

If Christmas is proving a little stressful and you find yourself reaching for the bottle out of relief, The Buttery Private Clinical Psychologist, Jenny McGee, suggests you might like to question if your drinking is covering deeper issues that need addressing.

Depression and loneliness are often exacerbated at Christmas time, so it's an important time to check in with each other, said Ms McGee.

"Binge drinking is a coping mechanism people use just to get some time out from the stress and overwhelm they are feeling."

If you think you have a problem with alcohol and want to address the underlying causes call The Buttery Private on 1300 851 695 or Alcoholics Anonymous: 1300 222 222.
