“More than 800,000 Danes drink above the National Board of Health’s recommended limit of 7 items per week for women and 14 for men.
If you want to cut off this week’s insignificant units, we’ve gathered seven tips and tricks that might help you along the way.
But before you can cut off the insignificant units, you can advantageously get an overview of your alcohol habits. Because once you know your habits, it’s easier to change them. For the next few weeks, try to keep a diary of 1) how many units you drink, 2) what type of alcohol, and 3) in what situations you drink. You can, for example, use your mobile.
Tip # 1 – Quench your thirst in water
A good tip is to quench your thirst in water so you do not drink alcohol because you are thirsty. Also, always make sure to drink water during the evening so that you may be able to cut down a bit on the units.
Tip # 2 – Choose the non-alcoholic alternative
There are now many good non-alcoholic alternatives that can work as a good alternative to alcohol. Get inspiration for non-alcoholic drinks on this page or try some of the non-alcoholic beers. There is now a large selection in the supermarkets.”
