Have a brave conversation

Talking about alcohol takes courage, but sharing our stories connects us, and makes us stronger. It’s how we can begin to make change.

Find someone you trust to talk to
A good person to talk to is someone who will listen respectfully to your story, and:

  • may have had a similar journey
  • is understanding and won’t judge
  • has given good advice in the past
  • won’t gossip.

Think through what you want to say
This helps you organise your thoughts, and feel calm going into the conversation.
