Top Tips


Know your strengths

Not all brands are the same strength - switch to a lower alcohol alternative. Make spirits into long drinks by adding mixers. Add soda water to wine or drink shandy instead of beer.


Watch your measures

Drinks poured at home, at parties and in many foreign bars are often larger than standard UK pub measures. If you drink at home, consider investing in a set of measures. Avoid "topping up" so you can keep track.

Stop Watch

Slow down, pace yourself

Sip, don't gulp! If you're really thirsty, take a soft drink or water. Use soft drink "spacers" when you're out, take a soft drink between alcoholic ones and drink less booze during the evening.


Know how to refuse a drink

Decide for yourself when and how much you want to drink. Some people can be offended if you turn down a drink - that's their problem. If you've had enough, insist on a soft drink. If it's your round, get yourself a glass of something alcohol-free.


Eat before and while you drink

Food makes the body absorb alcohol more slowly and so limits how quickly it gets into the bloodstream.

Piggy Bank

Drink to a budget

Take a limited amount of cash out with you - no more than you need to stay sober, in control and get a taxi home.
