Control Alcohol

Control Alcohol

Excessive alcohol and binge drinking can ruin your life. It may have started out as a drink to ‘unwind’ after work or when going to the pub drinking at the weekends. But alcohol can then begin to show up more often than at the weekend or the odd drink after work. You can find yourself ‘self medicating’ with alcohol to feel confident when you go out, or to get over a break up with a partner, or maybe an argument with the boss.

Binge drinking and excessive alcohol

If someone is having difficulty controlling their alcohol drinking this does not mean that they are an alcoholic but rather it’s the persons subconscious mind controlling the habit for them. There are occasions when you’ve decided to reduce the amount of alcohol or stop drinking alcohol. After deciding to make changes to your drinking habit the urge to drink often seems to get worse, because your subconscious mind is controlling the habit.

Alcohol Units can be confusing so the easiest way to understand safe drinking levels is to never go beyond a couple of drinks at one time and to limit your drinking to a maximum of 3-4 days per week. An occasional social drink is the safest way to drink.

Alcohol is the second biggest preventable killer and responsible for 137 hospital admissions every hour; that’s 3288 people a day, more than double cigarette related admissions.
