Drinking too Much?
Congratulations on taking the first step to discover how you can cut down on your drinking and be in control with a Beyond Booze Reduce Alcohol Program.
It may have crept up on you over the years. You don't realise how much and how often your are drinking alcohol, it is just part of your life.
2020 has altered many aspects of how we go about our "normal lives'. Maybe your working arrangements have changed, furloughed, redundant or working from home. Experiencing lockdowns and the strain this puts on relationships. This all has an impact and we have different ways of coping with the changes and uncertainty.
It's easy when you're at home, just to have one more, don't have to drive, don't have to face your boss or colleagues face to face in the morning, no-one can smell your breath or tell how bleary your eyes are online.
Perhaps the stress of home schooling has tipped you over the edge and rather than waiting till you got home from work and cooking dinner you've realised that you needed one as soon as you determined school work was over for the afternoon.
Maybe you're bored, anxious or need a drink to feel confident, interesting or more chatty in social situations? Where's the stop switch?
Sound like you? Well you are not alone
Recent statistics from the Foundation of Alcohol and Research Education (FARE) show that 70% of the respondents they surveyed are drinking more than they did before the Covid 19 pandemic, 34% say they are now drinking everyday and 20% are starting earlier in the day. 30% are drinking more to cope with emotional distress, (home schooling, anxiety, loneliness).
Australian Guidelines to reduce Health Risks from drinking alcohol
To reduce the risk of harm from alcohol-related disease or injury for healthy men and women, drink no more than 10 standard drinks per week and no more than 4 standard drinks on any one day. The less you choose to drink, the lower your risk of alcohol-related harm. For some people not drinking at all is the safest option.
To reduce the risk of injury and other harms to health, children and young people under 18 years of age should not drink alcohol.
To reduce the risk of harm to their unborn child, women who are pregnant or planning a pregnancy should not drink alcohol. For women who are breastfeeding, not drinking is safest for their baby.
A standard drink is:
285 mL of full strength beer (4.8% alc. vol)
375mL of mid strength beer (3.5% alc. vol)
425 mL of low strength beer (2.7% alc. vol)
100 mL of wine
A standard bottle of wine is 750ml. A standard restaurant serve is 140ml (i.e. 1.4 std drinks)
100 mL of champagne (12% alc. vol)
30 mL of spirits (40% alc. vol)
275 mL bottle of ready-to-drink beverage (5% alcohol content)
