Wake Up is here to encourage and inspire you to think about your drinking habits and enjoy alcohol safely. We want to motivate you to ‘Wake Up’ to a healthier you and embrace life without the hangover.
People have all sorts of pressures, and life can be hard, so it is easy to turn to drink as a way of coping, but alcohol isn’t the answer – it leaves you feeling foggy the next morning, you don’t sleep as well and have even less energy to deal with the kids.
Wake Up, features real stories from North Yorkshire people about how and why they manage their alcohol intake. Take a look here. We also have special pages dedicated to ways to help reduce or give up alcohol, like taking a break, having days off, shrinking the amount you drink, and even tips on how to talk to your friends about drinking less.
