    Radio presenter Adam Green goes teetotal

    BBC Radio Shropshire presenter Adam Green liked to drink with his friends and wife.

    He described himself as an "average drinker". Three pints with friends down the pub here, a bottle of wine with his wife there. All with little thought to the impact the alcohol was having on his body.
