Make a slight change to your drinking to feel the benefits says Calderdale Recovery Steps

 

The Calderdale alcohol and drugs service Calderdale Recovery Steps are asking people to pledge a small change to their drinking behaviour and share it on social media using the hashtag #InspiredChange.

It is part of a campaign led by Calderdale during Alcohol Awareness Week which runs from the 19th to 25rd November to encourage people to review their drinking.

Lisa Brook, Complex Need HOPE Worker for Calderdale Recovery Steps said: “We are hoping that in Alcohol Awareness Week people will take some time to consider how a small change to their drinking might have a big impact on their life.”

Lisa continued: “There are plenty of good reasons to cut back on your drinking including watching your weight, reducing stress and saving money as well as staying healthier for longer.

“Making a small, manageable change like cutting out that after work drink or having more drink free days can mean huge health benefits and people will feel better for it. So we’re asking them to make a personal pledge to change and share it on social media using #InspiredChange.”

Alcohol Awareness Week is a national campaign organised by Alcohol Concern. The theme this year is “change”.
