Risky or hazardous alcohol use can be difficult to keep track of, especially when it is a regular occurrence in our lives.
With the best will in the world, trying to remember exactly what we drank over the last week can sometimes be hard.
Therefore keeping a daily diary for a couple of weeks, detailing what you drank and where, will help get a better picture of exactly how many units you are drinking as well as the dangers you are putting yourself in.
This will then help you decide, or not decide, what you would like to do. Keeping a diary also helps you look at your drinking behaviours and highlight what you should change. This then can encourage or motivate you to try and keep your alcohol use at sensible levels, therefore keeping yourself healthier.
Remember just a small change can make a huge improvement.
