As part of our campaign ‘Alcohol and You’, SpunOut is encouraging you to consider your relationship to alcohol and how it makes you feel. By making small changes to your drinking, you can feel big improvements in your mental and physical health.

As part of the campaign, you’ll find content on social alternatives to drinking, so you can keep your social life busy but your drinking at a minimum. You’ll find information on how to cope with social anxiety at parties without having to drink alcohol, how to cope with hangovers and alcohol’s impact on anxiety, and how to approach a friend who may be drinking too much. There is also information on addiction and support services.
