Whether you’re taking a short-term break from booze or you’re saying thank you, next to booze for a while, these tips might come in handy in setting you up for success (they really helped me when I cut down in 2016).
1. Surround yourself with supportive and caring friends. Seriously. It seems obvious to me now, but it took me sometime before I realised the reason I was finding it difficult not to drink at events, was because the company I was surrounding myself with actually were not that pleasant. Essentially this tip is summed up in the words of Queen Emperor of the World Michelle Obama - “Choose friends who lift you up.”
