Are there steps I can take to cut down on my alcohol substance abuse?

This helps to remove the temptation and opportunity. When you’re out, consider ordering drinks like sparkling water, tomato juice or sparkling cider with club soda and cranberry juice.

If you must drink, sip slowly and keep track of how much you’re drinking by refilling your own glass. Consider low-alcohol or non-alcoholic beer and wines.
