Alcohol Awareness Week 2024: Practical Steps and Finding Support

As we step into Alcohol Awareness Week, it’s a time to reflect on our relationship with alcohol and consider the impact it has on our lives and communities. This annual event, observed in many countries, is dedicated to educating the public about the dangers of excessive alcohol consumption and promoting healthier choices. This year’s theme, “Understanding Alcohol Harm,” encourages us to rethink our habits and the societal norms around drinking.

Understanding Alcohol Awareness Week

Alcohol Awareness Week is an initiative by Alcohol Change UK (LINK) aimed at raising awareness about the risks associated with alcohol misuse. The week is filled with activities, campaigns, and educational programs designed to inform people about the potential consequences of drinking too much and to provide support for those who may need help managing their alcohol consumption.

Practical Steps to Healthier Drinking

If you’re considering making a change, here are some practical steps to get started:

Set Limits: Decide in advance how many drinks you will have and stick to your plan.

Keep Track: Monitor your drinking habits by keeping a diary of when and how much you drink.

Choose Alcohol-Free Days: Pick a few days each week to go alcohol-free. This helps break the habit and can improve your overall health.

Stay Informed: Educate yourself about the effects of alcohol on your body and mind.

Where to Find Support?

Each council has their own support service for drug and alcohol recovery and they are listed below.
