4 Benefits of Taking a Break from Alcohol

It’s one of our favorite ways to relax at the weekend, and many of us love a glass of wine or a cocktail after a long difficult week at work. Maybe relaxing in front of the TV with a martini or a glass or red is one of your favorite past times, but every now and then it’s a good idea to take a break and give your body a rest from drinking alcohol. 


  1. It will decrease your tolerance


Although some people like to brag about how much they can drink before it starts to affect them, having a high tolerance for alcohol can be a massive problem. Not only does it lead to drinking large quantities in order to get the desired effect, but it also means that you consume more calories and experience even more of the disadvantages that come with drinking, such as liver damage, heart problems and weight gain. The lower your tolerance, the less alcohol you will want to drink, meaning the less money you’ll spend and the healthier you will be. 


  1. It allows time to detox


You can’t properly detox if you’re still drinking alcohol, so no matter how much salad you’re eating and how many times you’re filling up your plate with great vegetables, your liver will be crying out for a break. Replace the alcohol with water if you really want to do your liver a world of good. 


  1. You will sleep better


If you’re struggling to go to sleep at night but drinking in order to feel tired, you’re doing it all wrong. While it will help you to fall asleep, it will also mean that you’re more tired the next day, and if you’re drinking every night in order to fall asleep quicker or more peacefully, you’ll be getting yourself into a horrible cycle where you can’t stop drinking but it makes you feel even worse the morning after. 


  1. Your skin will look better


People who don’t drink much alcohol tend to have much better skin than those who drink on a regular basis. This is mainly due to the fact that alcohol dehydrates your body, which means that your body then tries to get moisture from wherever it can, including your skin. This is why people who drink regularly are more prone to dry skin, and unfortunately the answer isn’t good moisturiser!
