Alcohol in Lockdown
every day seems like a weekend
There has been an increase in the number of enquiries over the past few weeks from individuals with a common problem…. their relationship with alcohol. Over the past few weeks (or has it been months?) it has become very easy to lose track of our daily routines. Sometimes I don’t even know what day of the week it is, let alone what work I have on that day.
When it comes to alcohol, I know lots of people like to commit to drinking nothing midweek, whereas others like to have maybe 1 drink a night during the week and then let loose on the weekend. Either way is fine, there is no right or wrong. Whichever way works for you and you choose for your life is right for you.
During these times though it has become very easy to get out of synch with our daily routines. Any given day could quite easily seem to be a weekend for those who are either now not working or those who work from home. So when we look at things like that, whichever category from the two above that you fall into, it could be a dangerous time. If you only drink alcohol at weekends, yet every day seems like a weekend it can be very easy to start to drink every day. On the other hand if you are the type to let loose at weekends, again it can be very easy to start finding yourself getting carried away on any given day.
What can you do to stop thins happening
Here are just a few ideas as to how you can consciously try and keep a lid on your alcohol consumption levels:
Keep a diary about what you are drinking. Notice any trends
Commit to a daily routine
Have a reward night where you say its ok to have a few drinks
Find a hobby in the evenings to fill up your time
Now these are things you can do to try and stop the output/symptom of drinking. We however want to help you change your internal programming so that you don’t even need to put the effort into drinking less. We have found that over the duration of no more than 2-3 sessions it can be very easy to regain that level of control. We can help you start to create a daily routine that fits back into who you are and how you want to live your life.
