Take Control of Your Tomorrow

Take control of your tomorrow by watching how much you drink today.

We’ve all been there.

That extra shot at the bar, saying yes to the double vodka rather than sticking with a single and one for the road. Then you REALLY regret it the next day. It could be that you’re suffering from the hangover from hell or that you’re skint for the rest of the week.

Whatever the reason is, losing a day to the booze isn’t much fun.

Check out below some handy tips and tricks to take control of your tomorrow by watching how much you drink today.

Drinks Swaps

Swapping a few of your drinks on a night out can make a HUGE difference to how you feel the next day, as well as having longer-term benefits to your health.
So why don’t you:
• Swap your glass of wine to a wine spritzer
• Order a single rather than a double
• Have a shandy rather than a pint
• Enjoy a soft drink to end your night
