Reducing alcohol 

Reducing Alcohol Cutting back on alcohol can be an effective way to improve your health, boost your energy, lose weight, and save money. Any reduction in the amount you drink every week will be beneficial – and with the right help, it's easier than you think.


Realising you have a problem with alcohol is the first big step to getting help. A good place to start is with a GP. Try to be accurate and honest about how much you drink and any problems it may be causing you. Visit this page for more guidance on getting help.


On this NHS page, you will find tips on how to cut down your alcohol intake and the benefits that come with drinking less. You can also watch this short video on ways to help you drink less. There is also a link to download the Drink Free Days app (available on the Apple App store and Google Play), which can help you track your drink-free days, get reminders, and celebrate milestones and targets.


Drinkaware is an independent charity which aims to reduce alcohol-related harm by helping people make better choices about their drinking. Understand more about your drinking with the Drinking Check, by answering a few questions to get all the tools, tips and advice to help you make a change.
