Did you know that about half (48 per cent) of Australian drinkers consume alcohol with the intentions of getting drunk? And 78 per cent of Aussie drinkers who consume alcohol to get drunk, consider themselves to be a ‘responsible drinker’.
Now this is a judgement free zone, so we’re here for people living their best lives. However, copious amounts of drinking often lead to unfortunate situations, whether that be health concerns, mental health issues, financial problems, or something else.
So, it’s no surprise that people would want to dry and reduce their amount of drinking.
This year, originating from the UK is Club Soda’s eighth Mindful Drinking Festival, that will this year appear online due to COVID-19 reasons, and this year it’s FREE to attend.
The four-day virtual event will give anyone looking for the inspiration to change their drinking habits, access to some of the world’s leading experts in mindful drinking.
