Talk with others about your drinking and other drug use

Talk with supportive friends, family, and the others in your house about your alcohol and other drug use.


Their feedback will help you to identify early if your use is having a negative impact on yourself or others.

These things can help:

  • Talk with supportive people regularly about how you are feeling and be honest if you are struggling.
  • Tell supportive people if you are trying to make changes to your substance use. They can help you stick to your plan and support you if things get tough.
  • If you are struggling with your drug use or need some urgent support, reach out to support services immediately.
