"No thanks, I'm on a Drink Free Day!" Here are 5 ways to help you brush off peer pressure and stick to your Drink Free Days.

Tell your friends and family

… and ask for their support. Tell them how important it is for you not to drink that night and why. Remember, you might not be the only one feeling pressured to drink. You might even end up encouraging someone else to take the night off alcohol with you!

Have a zero

From beer to wine, there are plenty of new and delicious zero-alcohol alternatives to try. If you know where you’re going, check the drinks menu ahead of time so you know what's available.

Be the designated driver for the night

Team up!

Find a friend that's having a Drink Free Day as well. There is strength in numbers!
