Everybody knows they should drink a bit less, but good intentions are hard to keep. MINDFUL DRINKING: HOW CUTTING DOWN WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE shows not only why you should, but also how you can, in a way that will change your life forever.
Ever woken up worrying that you said the wrong thing at work drinks the night before? Felt frustrated with yourself for polishing off the entire bottle of wine when you only intended to have one glass? The emotional pull of alcohol is strong, but Mindful Drinking: How Cutting Down Will Change Your Life is here to help us cultivate a new, healthy and more mindful relationship with alcohol.
Journalist Rosamund Dean combines scientific expertise with practical advice in a game-changing four step plan: The Problem, The Incentive, The Clean Break and The End Game. Drinking less will improve your mood, your skin and your body as well as reduce stress and anxiety for the long term.
I loved this book. It's smart, insightful and relatable. It never judges you, or tells you off. Instead, it cheerfully - and humorously - invites you to reconsider your assumptions about alcohol. After I read it, for the first time ever, I truly believed that life with a bit less booze in it could be a lot more fun.'—Hannah Marriott, The Guardian
An ideal read for anyone tackling dry January—SUN
In Mindful Drinking, Rosamund has come up with the perfect concept - knowing when to enjoy yourself and then really enjoying the moment when you do. In the process of trying for a baby I've been employing this for a while now (I call it teehalfism, being teetotal, half the time). If anyone needs a great way to kickstart a healthier 2018, then Mindful Drinking is your first resolution.—Emily Phillips, Grazia and author of TRYING
