Drink Less

Do you have a couple to unwind every night?

Personal support to help you discover ways to cut back on alcohol and the benefits you’ll experience.

Our support is free and can help reduce your risk of developing illnesses and improve your wellbeing.

There is no ‘safe’ drinking level. Regularly drinking more than the low risk level of 14 units a week can be harmful.

Benefits of drinking less alcohol

  • Reduce risk of heart disease and cancer
  • Less likely to have an accident/take risks
  • Less chance of embarrassing yourself on a night out
  • Liver more able to recover and repair damage
  • Save money on alcohol and taxis
  • Increase energy and concentration

You can still enjoy a drink without stopping altogether. Plus there are lots of benefits mentally, physically, socially and financially, to cutting down.

  • Make it a smaller one

    You can still enjoy a drink, but have a smaller one – swap a pint for a bottle of beer or a large glass of wine for a small one. Or why not order a spritzer or shandy instead.

  • Have a lower-strength drink

    Swap strong beers or wines for lower–strength ones.

  • Alternate with soft drinks

    Sipping a soft drink or water between alcoholic drinks will help reduce the amount of alcohol you drink and help you stay hydrated.

  • Avoid rounds

    Buying your own drinks means you don’t have to keep up with fastest drinker in the group – plus you’ll save money too!

  • Track the amount you’re drinking

    There are some great tools to help you drink less. Download the Drink Free Days app to get reminders, support and practical advice to change your drinking habits for good.

  • Make a plan and set a budget

    Before you start drinking, set a limit on how much you’re going to drink and only take out a fixed amount of money to spend on alcohol.
