Benefits to drinking less

Ever put your recycling out and wondered how you managed to get through so many bottles of wine and beer in only a week? Suffered from one too many mid-week hangovers at work? Or have you calculated how much you are drinking and now want to cut down? 

These are just some of the benefits that await you.

Physical benefits

  • Better quality sleep with fewer ‘middle of the night’ disturbances
  • More energy
  • Lose weight – alcohol is packed with calories and you will be less likely to eat unhealthy food
  • No hangovers – say goodbye to the splitting headache the morning after
  • Reduced risk of injury through accidents
  • Stay healthier for longer – drinking less reduces the risk of developing long-term health conditions such as cancer, diabetes and heart and liver disease

Social and financial benefits

  • Improved mood and relationships
  • Better performance at work
  • Less likely to get in trouble with the law - for example by acting uncharacteristically in public
  • Save money – the more you drink, the more you spend
