Drinking less may be a good idea for you

There are plenty of practical ways you can start to cut down and stay on track

Space out alcohol

Sipping a soft drink between alcoholic drinks slows down the rate of your drinking

Drink-free days

If you want to cut down the amount you're drinking, a great way is to have several drink-free days a week.

Eat up

A healthy meal before you go out, and snacks between drinks can help to slow down the absorption of alcohol

Dinner only drinking

Instead of opening your whole evening up to drinking, why not just allocate dinner as the time you enjoy a drink?
