Has your alcohol consumption increased in Lockdown? Perhaps you’re finding the stress of returning to work has increased your need to have a drink when you get home to help you unwind. If you are working from home perhaps there is the temptation of a gin and tonic or glass of wine at the end of the day.
Whilst our trips to the pub have been limited and now we have to leave the pubs at 10.00 this often means that people are drinking more at home. It is cheaper and we pour ourselves bigger measures. We don’t have to drive anywhere so the temptation is to have just one more drink or finish the bottle before bedtime.
Here at my Leatherhead clinic I have had a number of clients who feel they have lost control of their drinking. They can’t resist the temptation to pour another drink.
One of the best ways of taking back control is to dedicate two or three nights each week as alcohol free. Arrange another treat on those nights perhaps take some exercise or watch a movie. Write those days on the calendar so that they are a commitment to your wellbeing.
Stoptober is here again perhaps you feel going dry for a whole month will break the routine or pattern that you have got into. Often we take a drink almost as a habit because it’s what we do at the end of the day or when we are stressed.
Reducing the amount of alcohol we drink we also help to lose weight, another very important factor at these times. We need to take responsibility for our health and wellbeing. Often we are not aware of just how much we are drinking when we drink at home. Check out safe drinking guidelines and stick to them. Changing your drinking habits and taking back control will help your health and even your wealth.
