Mindful drinking is an 8 week online course helping you achieve your drinking goals, whether you want to cut down, stop for a bit, or quit alcohol for good. Here are just two quotes from the hundreds of Club Soda members who have completed the course and reduced their drinking:

I met my goals with the occasional excess but felt in control and that I can maintain my goals each week. Looking forward I think I can reduce further. John

I wasn’t sure I was able to cut down, and am very pleased that I can and I have. Stell

Cut down or quit alcohol – it is all about mindful drinking

This mindful drinking course is aimed at people who want to change their alcohol habits. You may be drinking a few glasses of wine every day, or binge at weekends. Either way, if you feel that your alcohol consumption is higher than you’d like it to be, this course will help you to quit or moderate. Note that this course is not recommended for physically dependent drinkers.

Based on behaviour change science

Powered by behaviour change science, the mindful drinking course will give you all the tools and techniques that you need to change your drinking habits. It includes 4 weeks of stimulating and practical emails that will help you understand your drinking and how you can go about changing your relationship with alcohol, followed by another 4 weeks of practice and email revision along with prompts to consolidate your hard work. As part of this course you will become part of the Club Soda community. A group of like-minded individuals changing their drinking together and boosting your chances of success.

Who wrote the course?

Dr Jussi Tolvi is a social scientist with expertise in alcohol and behaviour change, and a moderate drinker. Laura Willoughby MBE is the founder of Club Soda, she gave up drinking four years ago. They have used their own knowledge, and the experiences of Club Soda members to develop this 8 week course.

No. This course is not about meditation or mindfulness. They can be helpful practices, and they do get mentioned during the programme, but this course will not teach you those skills.

What people have said about Mindful Drinking

Club Soda has been an enormous support for me during the last 4 weeks. I have looked forward to the emails & it has been uncanny how they seem to be exactly relevant to my experience. Karen

The emails have helped me think about my habits / lifestyle so very much. I am trying to cut down but have just had a weekend away skiing where I failed miserably on a successful day. I only half believe in myself but I am loving the emails each day and will probably sign up again. The triggers have been the most insightful. Thank you for your help. I am not a lost cause yet! Louise

I am much more aware of my drinking habits/triggers & behaviors since doing this course. I plan to continue to use the tools provided in the course to moderate my drinking and potentially even stop altogether as I start to accept I don’t ‘need’ to drink. Gill
