Blackpool has a comprehensive action plan to reduce the harm caused by alcohol. This is to help individuals with alcohol problems, families with problem drinkers and communities with problems arising from alcohol.
If you repeatedly find yourself worse for wear due to alcohol, consider alternating. ALTN8 promotes a simple message. Alternate drinks, days and lifestyle. ALTN 8 begins to challenge people’s routines of regular excessive drinking.
