Can You Really Drink in Moderation?

Are you one of  those who enjoys a glass of wine after work? Do you prefer to drink beer at home? It s important that enjoyment of alcohol does not exceed the limits of moderation.

Moderation in drink means controlling alcohol intake to a moderate amount. In addition to limiting daily intake of alcohol should be limited and weekly limit.  Daily intake of alcohol is different in men and women, so men can consume up to two servings of alcohol per day, while women can consume one drink a day. But this does not mean that a person can save up their daily maximum and binge drink one night per week. Binge drinking can have severe side effects like alcohol poisoning.

Problems with a drink in the family can lead to very serious problems. A person who drinks in a particular moment will become a danger to himself and members of his family. People with this problem  very hard admit mistake and deny the problem with alcohol.

What is Moderation Management?

Moderation Management  is a behavioral change program and national support group network for people concerned about their drinking and who desire to make positive lifestyle changes. The program prohibits alcohol intake in the first 30 days. Thereafter, alcohol is slowly reintroduced into everyday life,  but  limiting intake.

Members who are in the program  can set their own goals, and with moderation they can motivate themselves and others to change. It is hard to imagine life without drinking, especially for individuals who drank every day. This is one of the main reasons why people do not want to stop drinking.

The program consists of nine steps that will learn you the moderation of drinking. Among them are: keeping a track records , restrained the urge for alcohol, not drinking alcoholic beverages, etc.
