Half of all people living in Ireland say they've felt harassed, afraid or unsafe because of someone else's drinking.

A new report from the HSE looks at the impact it has on children, family members and work colleagues. 

It found that just over 60 percent of people know a heavy drinker in their life.

Two in every five report being stressed, harassed and insulted by a drinker they know, while the survey also shows the impact its having on children with many experiencing verbal abuse and serious violence in their homes. 

It's estimated that the economic cost of Alcohol Harm to Others stands at almost 900 million euro.
