Worried about your drinking?

Enjoying a drink has become a normal part of life for many of us. It’s associated with special occasions, relaxing with friends, or a meal out and helps us to unwind after a busy day. However, sometimes it stops being fun and starts to feel a bit out of hand. If you’ve ever polished off a bottle of wine when you only intended to have a glass or two, or ended up drinking six pints with your mates when you promised yourself you’d stop at three, Drinkwise Derby is for you.

Take our self assessment quiz here to find out what sort of drinker you are and what might help you to cut down.

    Pride month may have come to an end but that doesn't mean that the important message has been forgotten. Why not change your rainbow coloured cocktail for a rainbow coloured mocktail? pic.twitter.com/1MOcEWkl1E

At last we are enjoying some lovely Spring weather - let's hope we get plenty of sunshine over the coming months!

The lighter evenings make it very tempting to sit outside with a long drink, so why not spend time planning some mocktails? There are plenty of recipes online - just Google mocktail recipes.

And you can also check out non-alcoholic options in the supermarket. Make sure you have plenty of ice and fresh fruit to make the most of them.
