Missing out on a simple way to control your drinking?

A great way to control your drinking is to understand your reasons for drinking. Yet, this can be confusing as everybody’s reasons for drinking are different.  Some people drink because they’re depressed, for others drinking makes them depressed.

Some people drink too much  at the end of a long hard day to relax, others drink because drinking gives them energy to get through all they need to do in our modern hectic lives.


Drinking has two faces.

So like the Roman God, Janus, drinking has two faces. There’s the upsides or pro’s  where drinking helps you feel better and then there’s the downsides or con’s where drinking is making your life worse.
