2FM – Ask About Alcohol Week

It’s Ask About Alcohol Week and 2fm’s starting a conversation with the nation about our Love/Hate relationship with alcohol.

And who doesn’t love going out but hate how we feel the next morning if we over do it?  

  • Do you know the positive impact drinking less can have on your health, your relationships and your pocket!
  • Let’s talk about making memorable nights, the ones you do remember, find out how drinking less can help make it a great night out without the awful morning!
  • Isn’t it time to move on from the Irish Stereotype image we have when it comes to alcohol?
  • Like in all relationships, if it’s a negative one you’d try to change it, so find out what sort of relationship you have with alcohol and if it needs it, change it?
