Take a Break
Some people find taking a break from booze altogether helps them ‘reset’ their relationship with alcohol for good. And it’s not just for ‘Dry January’ and ‘Sober October’ – you can do it at any time of year!
Why not agree with a like-minded friend to do it together? Or post on social media that you’re going to take some time away from alcohol? Making a commitment makes it more likely that you will do it!
And not to worry about slip-ups, you can get back to it the next day, and there’s no limit to how many times you can give it a go!
One great free tool to help you is Try Dry. The app helps you track your calories and money saved by not drinking. Or if you want to, there are some great paid subscription apps that might just help. These include One Year No Beer which gives you hacks to change your mindset on drinking. Or join Club Soda (who are currently offering a 3 day free introduction) which gives advice on how to change your drink choices. You can connect with others cutting down, and motivate each other to keep going.
