Preparing for IkPas

– Try to reduce your alcohol consumption in the coming period. Then the transition is smaller.
– Invite your partner, family, friends and colleagues to participate. If you have one or more buddies in January, it's easier.
– Whether or not they participate: tell as many people in your area as possible that you will put your alcohol consumption on a break from 1 January. Some social control can help you keep it going.
– Think of alternatives to the alcoholic drinks and get them at home.
