Public health drive for drink free days

Public Health England and alcohol education charity Drinkaware are jointly launching a new campaign Drink Free Days to help people cut down on the amount of alcohol they are regularly drinking.

Two thirds of regular drinkers say that cutting down on their drinking is harder than improving diet or exercise.

A YouGov poll has found that one in five of UK adults are drinking above the chief medical officer’s low risk drinking guidelines and more than two thirds of these say they would find cutting down on their drinking harder to do than one or more other lifestyle changes - improving their diet, exercising more, or reducing their smoking, if they were smokers.
