Most people associate ALCOHOL with fun, with being sociable and with celebrations. We may also use it to help us feel better when we are tense or unhappy, or to feel more confident. But the truth is "70 per cent of the hospital related accidents are alcohol related".

One snag is that, although alcohol initially acts as a 'pick-you-up' and mood - enhancer, it is ultimately a depressant; so a heavy night drinking is likely to leave you feeling worse rather than better. Also, the more you drink, and the more often you drink, the more of it you need to feel the same effects. Individuals often are not aware how much they are drinking or its impact on those around them. If you recognise the presence of any of the following, it is time to do something about it:

  • You are regularly drinking.
  • Your studies may be suffering with difficulties in concentration, mood swings and having to contend with feelings of guilt.
  • Relationships with others may be dwindling, and your outlook and lifestyle restricted by a need to consume alcohol.

Gradually decrease the intake:

Here are some ideas that may help you to cut down your intake:

  • Keep a diary of intake in units to clarify your pattern of use and quantities. Cutting down as soon as possible works best if you set limits for yourself, that you feel you might reasonably stick to.
  • Identify those occasions, times of day, companions, or moods when you are prone to use. Try to avoid them as much as possible.
  • It might also help to try to cut down your intake with the support of a group. Increase your participation in your social circle.

Help Others:

Helping others is the most noble of all the other works. It can be extremely distressing if someone you care about is drinking. Although you can encourage and support them to make changes, it is they themselves who must ultimately decide (and be prepared) to do the changing. Some suggestions to help are:

  • Allow space for them to talk about anything that may be bothering them.
  • Rather than labelling them, focus on the effects drink is having on others, as well as on themselves.
  • Make clear what behaviour is unacceptable to you and avoid arguments.
