5 January 2022

Are you looking to drink less alcohol in 2022? The 30-Day Drink Less Programme could help change your drinking habits for good.

The course is delivered by DrinkChecker in partnership with Richmond Council, and has been written by expert alcohol counsellors with over 30 years of experience of supporting people to reduce their alcohol intake.

The programme involves spending 5 to 10 minutes a day reading an email and carrying out short evidence-based exercises to help you understand and manage your drinking. The course is designed specifically for you and will teach you how to stick to consuming lower levels of alcohol to support a happier and healthier lifestyle. Sign up today for free.

Residents are encouraged to visit the DrinkChecker website and take the anonymous Drink Test. The website will then help you understand more about how alcohol might be harming your health and will signpost you to advice, support, and treatment if necessary.

Cllr Piers Allen, Lead member for Adult Social Care and Health and Chair of the Richmond Health and Wellbeing Board, said:

“A lot of us will go into the new year with hopes of being healthier. Cutting down on the amount of alcohol you drink is a great place to start your health journey. It can help you lose weight, sleep better and have more energy, as well as saving you money.

“It can be difficult knowing how best to go about reducing the amount you drink. The 30-Day Drink Less Programme will offer you helpful guidance and change your relationship with alcohol for the better.”
