Work hard, play hard - that was broadcaster Guyon Espiner's life with booze.

But blackouts, bad hangovers and even an embarrassing incident with Helen Clark wasn't enough to stop him drinking - until two years ago.

He's now made a documentary called PROOF about kicking the habit, New Zealand's drinking culture and the influence of the alcohol industry.

Guyon Espiner joined Simon Barnett & James Daniels to talk about his journey.
