Ways to Cut Down on Drinking Alcohol

  • Always stick to your limit.

  • Don't drink alone.

  • Drink slowly; don't gulp your beverage; and don't drink on an empty stomach.

  • Don’t drink when you are thirsty.  Quench your thirst first with water.

  • Don't drink every day.

  • Add water or soda water to your drink to extend it without adding more alcohol.

  • Don't start drinking the moment you arrive home or at an event. Wait awhile.

  • Change your routine. For instance, if you normally have a drink at home after work, eat dinner or work out instead. Plan other activities to occupy your time.
