Drinking less alcohol

Why is cutting down on alcohol so important?

Reducing the amount of alcohol you drink can bring some great rewards.

Not only will it mean a reduced risk to your health, but you could look better, feel better and have more time to spend doing other activities.

 


 

How do I get started?

You can also use our online health and wellbeing planner to  make some postive changes to your lifestyle.

 


 

What support is available?

If you are worried about the amount of alcohol you drink, then can use One Recovery’s alcohol test to find out if you’re drinking too much.

If you're concerned about the impact that your drinking is having on your life, your friends and family, contact One Recovery Staffordshire for support:

 


Apps that can help!

There are an increasing number of health and wellbeing apps available. We are making it easier to help you find apps that can help you to stay healthy and well. Below are some of the top rated apps for drinking less alcohol. You can also search a range of health and wellbeing apps across different areas, such as, stopping smoking, improving your mental wellbeing, keeping active and managing health conditions.

How the rating works?

Working in partnership with Staffordshire County Council, Orcha help indicate whether an app appears to be safe and of value across a number of rated areas. Any score below 65% would indicate that an App has some issues that users should investigate further prior to using this App. Scores below 45% indicate that an App has considerable issues or challenges and in its current form is potentially unhelpful or unsafe.
