Think you might be drinking too much?

We know it can be hard to keep track of how much you're drinking. 

The Government advises that adults - both men and women - should drink no more than 14 units a week. You can find out how many units are in different drinks on the Drinkaware website

Why cut down on your alcohol intake

Cutting down on how much alcohol you drink can have some positive effects on the way you look and feel – often within just a few days.  You will see benefits from a sound night’s sleep, brighter skin and energy. You’ll be reducing your longer-term risk of some serious illnesses such as cancer and liver and heart disease.

 

How we can support you

Cutting down on your alcohol consumption isn’t easy, but you won’t be alone. We will help you understand more about your drinking, what safe levels of drinking are and remove the worried or confused about the number of units.

One of our Health Coaches will work with you to understand how you want us to support you and what we need to do together. We'll then signpost you to the right local service for you and then meet with you at regular intervals to check on your progress. We're here to support you meet your goals.

Daniel's Story

Daniel was referred to OneSmallStep through his community enabler to reduce his alcohol intake

Sometimes it has been hard to come but those that run the group are very helpful and encourage you loads. I have had one of my tablets for diabetes taken away to make things good. I have lost weight and lost a dress size. Only hope this group can carry on as it is very helpful.
