It can be difficult to cut back on your drinking, but it’s certainly doable. There is no shortage of specific steps you can take to do this. Some may work for you better than others. That’s fine. The important thing is to start, to get a toe hold, so to speak. Then you build on that.

With each thing you do to reduce your alcohol intake, with each little milestone you reach, you will get a psychological boost that will help you to the next stage. After all, there’s nothing like positive reinforcement for building success in any challenge.

And remember: You don’t have to do this alone. Friends, family, support groups…you’d be surprised just how many people care.

But back to those tips. Grab a pen and paper and watch this short video clip. It’s less than two minutes long and crammed with great ideas for cutting back on your drinking.

You can do it!
