Alcohol, COVID-19 and our communities
It may feel normal to drink more alcohol than usual in response to the stressors associated with COVID-19. Evidence shows that on the whole sexuality and gender diverse people drink more than the general population. Our drinking is not always harmful but can be harmful when we drink too much in one sitting or if we drink too frequently. If in the time of COVID-19 you find yourself drinking more than usual ACON has some strategies to help you reduce alcohol related harms and to modify drinking behaviours.
