We’ve created our Ditch the Drink Challenge to help you begin changing your relationship with alcohol.
Drinking any amount of alcohol can increase your risk of breast cancer.
Over 4,400 breast cancer cases each year are caused by drinking alcohol.
But we all know that starting something and following it through can be hard.
So the BCUK team has put our heads together (virtually obviously) and come up with some top tips to help you get yourself into the right mindset to succeed.
Let’s get prepared. As the saying goes, ‘if you fail to plan, you’re planning to fail’ and you don’t want that.
We have lots more tips and tricks over in our Ditch the Drink Facebook group – which you get access to when you sign up.
If you’re ready to test your motivation and take a decisive step to create a healthy habit, which if you continue long-term, will significantly reduce your risk of breast cancer and other diseases? Then go on join us.
Let’s make 2022 a year of feeling great and making healthy habits.
