‘Moderate February’ live seminar

Posted on January 31 2019 at 11:48:31



If you are doing Dry January then keep going, writes Julie Ward, alcohol specialist and managing director of ACT Alcohol Ltd.

The health benefits are undeniable and taking a break after a period of indulgence is always a good idea. So how about “Moderate February” – now there’s a challenge. Possibly the most important one.

If there is a leaning towards bingeing in February because you feel you deserve it, that’s where the benefits of Dry January stop.

It’s very common to feel you have proven to yourself that you can go without, but heavy drinking resumes in February. I know, because I have done it myself!

I am running a Moderate February Live Seminar on February 9 at the Holiday Inn, Bromsgrove, aiming to equip you with the mindset, strategies and techniques to moderate your drinking in February and beyond.

The experience runs from 9.30am–1pm and you will be in a group of no more than 10 people. 

We will help you understand why you drink, and why you have found it so difficult to reduce or quit in the past. It covers different types of problem drinking and explains the various stages of alcohol dependency.

It covers all aspects of drinking such as habit, social drinking, or drinking due to stress, anxiety or boredom, and looks at why as a society we ignore the risks of over-indulgence, even though there are so many consequences.

This new way of thinking is reinforced by the introduction of unique strategies that you would never have thought of yourself!

“We will teach you the techniques we use every day to break alcohol dependency and achieve moderate drinking. You can’t fail to make a change to your drinking after the seminar – it will be an experience you won’t forget.
