Drinking is not a problem for you as you enjoy the process. And your favorite alcoholic beverage symbolizes the transition from a busy day at work to relaxation. Is there any reason to worry?

The Telegraph writes, "You may rarely drink more than two drinks in an evening, and you can't even remember the last time you got drunk. However, you can't go a single day without alcohol, and that's can be a sign"

Unfortunately, medicine has not yet given a clear answer to the question of the safety of moderate drinking. And this causes some confusion in understanding the problem. And yet, most experts agree that a "friendship" with alcohol does not lead to anything good even if someone thinks they have everything under control.

According to official NHS data (for men and women), the dose of alcohol should not exceed 14 units per week on a regular basis. In addition, the 2016 recommendations of the US Surgeon General clearly state, "There is no level of regular alcohol consumption that can be considered absolutely safe for some cancers", adding that, "the health benefits of moderate consumption of alcoholic beverages are an old tale".

Wine can be a serious problem

Drink Coach specialist Robert Burns said, "I can't think of a single person I've worked with whose life hasn't improved since they started drinking less."

"Their health, their job, their financial situation, their relationships: everything is better."

"Wine is a shared problem," Robert says. Your "just a glass" (approximately 175 ml) is 2.25 units and 158 calories. Accordingly, two such glasses are 4.5 units (316 calories). It turns out that you consume a minimum of 16.1 units and 1,106 additional calories in a week.

How to reduce daily alcohol consumption?

"The main thing," Robert says, "is to understand the reasons why you drink every day even in small doses. Mostly it's a desire to relax at the end of the day. The trouble is that later on, this "relaxation" becomes a habit, a reflexive action after you return home."

In this case, the expert advises:

  • In the first week, switch from drinking wine to two (precisely measured) servings of gin and tonic, which will be easier to count and reduce
  • In the second week - to one serving,
  • In the third week - to tonic water.

In addition, Burns recommends changing your behavior (coming home and opening the bottle right away). "Instead of going to the kitchen," he says, "do something else. According to Rob, the urge to drink lasts only 10-20 minutes. If you sit through it and distract yourself, it will pass.

"You also need to change your reward system," Rob says. "Decide what else, besides alcohol, relieves stress and fatigue."

He also strongly advises to record the entire process of "treatment" and its results, with a breakdown by units of measurement, calories, and the amount of money spent.
