Sober October anyone?!
It's that time of year again! Macmillan Cancer Support are once again running their month long campaign to raise some much needed funds as well as improve our health! Whatever your reasons, giving up your chosen poison for a month is a great thing to do. However, it can be a bit of a challenge for many people, so I thought I'd write some tips to make life a bit easier.
One thing I have noticed in recent years is that alcohol has become more of a problem than it used to be. Perhaps this has to do with access, cheaper prices and also a change in culture. When I was a child, a bottle of wine was something you got for a special occasion. Nowadays, it finds its way into the shopping trolley as easily as a cabbage or a loaf of bread! I've also noticed that expressions like 'wine o'clock' find their way onto facebook pages and greeting cards in a way that makes me a little uncomfortable sometimes. What is meant as a joke is a serious issue for some people and it can creep upon us without us realizing! The British Liver Trust recommend taking a break of 2 days a week to rest the liver. There's no question that over use of alcohol such as binge drinking can lead to health problems but even small but regular drinking can present challenges as our liver gets over burdened. Remember we need our liver to support our immune health and clean out toxins, not just alcohol, so we need to protect it and treat it with respect so that it will continue to protect us!
