Tips for Reducing Alcohol Intake
If you are an alcoholic, then you can cause yourself more damage stopping drinking straight away. Always consult your GP for advice, but in general if you wish to start reducing your intake then the following behaviours can help you to do so safely.
Pace your drinking
Take smaller sips
Put your glass down between sips
Occupy yourself with something else whilst drinking
Change your drink
Drink for the taste
Don't drink beer and spirits together
If you drink spirits, dilute them
Refuse drinks during some rounds
Duck every other round
Try a 'spacer' (non-alcoholic drink) between rounds
Imitate the slow drinker in the pub
Start drinking later
Take at least 2 days rest from alcohol per week
Start a drink diary, keeping track of your weekly intake
Keep under a daily maximum intake
Keep under a weekly total intake
Give yourself material rewards for success
