It can be easy for people to get into the habit of drinking alcohol most nights but the reality is, it isn’t good for their long term health......
What many people don’t realise is that regularly drinking alcohol above low risk levels can significantly increase the risk of developing a range of health conditions such as heart disease and seven types of cancer including breast cancer. The UK’s Chief Medical Officers suggest one way to reduce these risks is by taking more drink free days each week.
Make a plan – decide how you're going to stop.
Keep going out with friends and family.
Start saving the money you would have spent on alcohol.
Let your friends know that you are stopping and it is important to you.
Try to enlist a friend to join you.
Take it a day at a time.
Keep a diary recording your success, savings and weight loss.
Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
Don't beat yourself up if you do slip – just start again.
So why not join this year's Dry January campaign and enjoy all the benefits that it can bring. We at BISPHAM ROAD PHARMACY are here to give you extra support and to celebrate your success.
