Introduction
  • It seems like every gathering you go to from
    Thanksgiving to New Years involves some kind of
    alcohol. Tis the season for hot toddiesand
    champagne, and cocktails, and endless glasses of
    wine. Getting into the holiday spirit with
    spirits is so pervasive that weve even dedicated
    the month of January to detoxing. Drinking is
    more excessive during the holidays its like
    you hit a green light that wont turn red again
    until New Years Day and you think you can drink
    without consequences because its the holidays.

10 Expert Backed Strategies To Drink Less
During The Holidays
  • 1. Start a new habit
  • Once you've identified an unhealthy
    habitmaybe you're constantly sipping on a
    cocktail just to avoid feeling awkward at the
    company partyit's time to break it. "In order to
    change a habit, you need to practice a new
    routine that replaces an old one," says
    Scritchfield. Instead of reaching for a refill
    every time you get anxious at the office party,
    crunch on some crudités instead. And don't drop
    your drinking alternative once the ball drops on
    NYE. "Continuing to practice this new routine is
    keyit takes about six months for a practice to
    become a habit," Scritchfield says.

  • 2. Think About Each Drink As A

    Spoonful Of Sugar
  • You wouldn't shovel 10 gingerbread cookies
    into your mouth. Why not give the same attention
    to your alcohol servings? "Be mindful that
    alcohol turns to sugar in the body, says
    Boucher. "Think of that cocktail as a heaping
    spoonful of sugarthat may be enough of a visual
    to help you keep things in check.

  • 3. Destress before you socialize
  • Between tackling your gift list, baking
    treats for your book club's holiday gathering,
    and navigating a million family commitments, it
    can feel like you need that drink (or three) at
    the holiday party. "Women tend to overeat and
    drink too much when they're stressed, says
    Boucher. Instead of stress sipping, spend five
    minutes doing yoga or meditating before hitting
    the bar. Destressing even a little bit can help
    you curb your alcohol intake.

  • 4. Reach for a new nightcap
  • All that seasonal stress can also mean
    "drinking becomes a way to wind down and shut
    your brain off from the endless to-do list," says
    Boucher. If you notice yourself getting in the
    habit of opening a bottle of wine to help take
    the edge off before bed, try to find an
  • alternative nighttime ritual to swap out for
    the booze, says Scritchfield. Give yourself a
    post-shower massage with a little lavender oil,
    draw an Instagram-worthy bath, or take some
    melatonin with a festive cup of peppermint tea.

  • 5. Water down your drink
  • We've all heard that you should follow the 11
    ratioone glass of water for every alcoholic
    drink. But walking around with water in your hand
    for half the night can feel unfestive or be easy
    to forget. Instead, ask the bartender to make
    your cocktails with half a shot or reach for a
    wine spritzer instead of a regular glass. If
    you're a beer drinker, pick the brew with the
    lowest alcohol percentage and stick to it for the
    evening. "You get to enjoy the taste, it feels
    social, but you won't get the hangover," says
    Boucher.

  • 6. Call it an early night
  • Holiday drinking tends to go from spirited to
    sht-faced as the night wears on. If you're
    trying to stick to healthy drinking habits, head
    out before the shots start pouring. "Most times I
    find that two hours is plenty of time to talk to
    the people I want to talk to and make my exit
    before the party becomes all about the drinking,"
    Boucher says.

  • 7. Bring a friend to make things less awkward
  • That peppermint martini is a tempting
    antidote to your social anxiety. "Your mind may
    be telling you people will enjoy being around you
    more after a few drinks,'" says Scritchfield.
    While a drink might help loosen you up, it can
    actually make social anxiety worse. Bring a
    friend as your social lubricant insteadshe can
    help you carry the conversation without giving
    you a hangover.

  • 8. Avoid drama
  • "People may also reach for a drink to help
    them deal with being around difficult people,
    Scritchfield says. As much as you love your
    family, they can be a lot to deal with at the
    holidays. "It's healthier to have an agreement
    with yourself like, 'I will make small talk with
    this person, but I will also surround myself with
    the family I get along with and give myself
    plenty of me time,'" she says. If Uncle Rudy and
    Aunt Jean start fighting over politics (again)
    don't let it drive you to drink. "I was taught to
    visualize a Hula-Hoop around my waistanything
    outside of the Hula-Hoop is none of my business,"
    says Boucher. "Works like a charm."

  • 9. Audit your hangover
  • When you do go overboard at the holiday
    party, don't just throw it in the regrets column
    and move on with a couple aspirin. "Think about
    what caused you to drink excessively and write it
    down," advises Dr. Cidambi. Before heading to
    another fête, have another way of dealing in
    mind.

  • 10. Learn to say "no thank you"and support
    others when they do
  • "It's okay to decline a cocktail," says
    Scritchfield. If you don't want that third drink,
    you don't need to explain yourself or make up an
    excuse. "We need to support people who say no
    thank you and not make their refusal the next
    topic of conversation. I've seen too many women
    get shamed for not buying into the excessive
    drinking culture," she adds. If you really don't
    want to deal with everyone asking why you're "no
    fun," head to the bar and get yourself a seltzer
    with lime, says Boucher. "Once you have something
    in your hand, people don't ask why you're not
    drinking."
