Alcohol awareness week
11 November 2019
Alcohol awareness week runs from 11-17 November, with a focus on awareness-raising, campaigning for change, and more. We've listed below a handful of the benefits you gain from cutting down your alcohol intake.
Shredding the pounds
It shouldn’t come as a shock that alcohol is loaded with calories, alongside this, a hangover day is usually fuelled with high-fat and greasy food. So cutting back on your alcohol intake could see you welcome a new waistline too.
Leading on from the above point, alcohol can act as a diuretic, which can cause increased fluid loss and dehydration. Reducing your drinking habits means you don’t waste your calorie count on alcohol and leaves you with more room to gain great vitamins from varied foods, making your skin appear healthier.
It is no secret just how expensive drinking alcohol can make your night out. Sticking to soft drinks or tap water will mean a night socialising won’t have such a lasting effect on your bank balance.
If you’ve had a stressful day there are better coping mechanisms than alcohol. Try going for a walk, run, or catch up with some friends.
Finally, enjoy the hangover free weekends. Think of all the plans you can make knowing you’ll be feeling fresh as a daisy and not heavy headed.
