Glass Half full

Many of us enjoy a glass of something alcoholic to chill out, have fun or generally pass the time. But how much we drink can increase without us really thinking about it.

We can start drinking more for lots of reasons. Maybe work has become more stressful, you have more spare time after retiring, perhaps your children have moved out, or life is just generally feeling difficult.

Why not try swapping your next drink for a non-alcoholic alternative? Even cutting back small amounts can give you more energy to play with the grandchildren, help you lose weight, give you confidence to go out and try new things, or have a clear head to get that project done at work!
