It looks like a cocktail even feels like one, and may help you feel less conspicuous.
Plus, even with just a real drink every few, you will absorb less alcohol, and give your body back the water it is losing when you drink alcohol (four times as much water as you uptake is lost through the diuretic effect of alcohol). And you will be training yourself, and your body, to drink less.
– Keep little (or better yet no) alcohol at home; ease the temptation of drinking in isolation, or having that first drink “just for the hell of it”. If you DO keep alcohol at home for visitors, stock the types you don’t like so you won’t reach for them as easily.
If you find yourself reaching for them anyway, this is a strong indication that cutting down on your own could prove too difficult.
– Instead of activities that usually involve drinking, like Monday Night Football at the sports bar or Ladies’ Night drink specials, try using the time for something non-alcohol related, like seeing a movie, calling a long-ago friend for a phone conversation, or take to the hobby bench for a few hours.
