The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we drink. Some people have drunk more to cope with boredom, stress and anxiety. Others have been waiting to get back to the pub. But many of us have used the pandemic as an opportunity to cut down, take a break or stop drinking completely.
Whatever our story over the last year, as lockdown begins to lift and the world opens up, change is coming. And it may be coming very soon!
This collaborative online workshop is a chance to explore how your drinking has changed over the last year. Ideal for anyone who has changed their drinking before or during the pandemic – successfully or not – it’s an opportunity to think about what’s next.
In the workshop, you’ll learn how different types of drinkers have responded to life in lockdown. You’ll design your post-pandemic life and consider the role you want alcohol to play in it. And you’ll discover how to build solid plans that will work, and build your confidence to deal with any situation that emerges.
Your contributions to this workshop will help Club Soda create new courses to help people change. So come prepared to share your experiences of drinking before and during lockdown, and your hopes and fears for the future.
The workshops will be held on Zoom. Details will be sent to you before the event. The events on 19 and 20 March will have identical content, so please choose one or the other. Each workshop is limited to 12 participants, with smaller breakout sessions, so you will get a chance to hear other people’s viewpoints and share your own. And everyone is welcome, whether you are currently alcohol-free or moderating, and whatever your plans for your future drinking.
