tips on how to be Alcohol Aware
1 Have alcohol-free days – this can lower tolerance, so it’s easier to cut back, even on the days when you do decide to drink.
2 Don’t use alcohol as a way to relax. try exercising, chatting to a friend, or going for a walk to unwind after work.
3 consider reduced-alcohol drinks, whether you’re at home or out in a social setting.
4 offer to be the driver when you go out so you have an excuse to say no!
5 Worried about your drinking? ask your gp about taking a cage questionnaire.
