1. Act natural

A few of your friends might know you’re off the wine, but no one else will. Throw your dancing shoes on, act natural and no one will suspect a thing.

3. Have a drink in hand

If you’re used to having a drink in your hand then find a substitute. Grab a fruity mocktail or try a lime and soda. Your hand won’t feel empty and your head will thank you in the morning. Cheers to that!


4. Count your pennies

Your wallet will immediately start to feel fuller when you leave the wine on the shelf – result. Put your pounds towards a treat for yourself, or your fundraising target. Obviously.
