Make Alcohol Harm Reduction Your New Year's Resolution This Year

  • Behavior monitoring
  • Getting support

Anderson says that rigid, black-and-white, all-or-nothing thinking often leads people to set unrealistic goals like quitting alcohol for life on the spur of the moment. This frequently backfires and leads people to drink more than ever once they fall off the wagon. What is far more successful is for each person to choose the goal best suited to him or her as an individual -- whether that goal is safer drinking, reduced drinking, or quitting.

Research by people like Dr. Alan Marlatt shows that people who do not choose to quit alcohol will do better with a plan for safer drinking or reduced drinking than with nothing at all. And even people who do choose to quit alcohol will do better if they have a back-up plan for harm reduction in case they slip up.

The HAMS Harm Reduction Network offers a whole toolbox of techniques to help people change their drinking for the better, including:
