My drinking pros and cons (Janus)

Or log in to access your purchased courses

Janus, is the ancient Roman God who ruled over the beginning and end of conflict and hence war and peace. Usually he is shown as having two faces

Just like Janus, alcohol has two faces. There is the fun, glamorous  and exciting face shown in advertising. The social side of drinking with a group of friends. The way your mood and stress  lifts  on that  first drink.

Then there is the dark side of alcohol. Hangovers, irritability, tiredness,  time spent in bed, arguments, money problems, work issues   and health problems.

Our short mini course helps you identify your own personal drinking pros and cons. Once you complete this course you will have a better understanding of the upsides and downsides of your drinking. You’ll also know how to start taking action to control your drinking. So you’ll be able to reduce the cons of your drinking and keep the pros.

Knowing your drinking pros and cons is an important step towards getting your drinking under control. Without knowing your reasons and your pros & cons for drinking, it is nearly impossible to get your drinking under control. This is because your motivation is key to managing your drinking. It is much easier to get your drinking under control when you  understand  the things that are making you drink and the pay off’s  you  are getting from your drinking.

As always, this course is confidential and you remain anonymous.
