Book Description:

Finally! Here is a proven, practical way to drink alcohol and lower your risk for problems. Up until now, there have been two primary messages when it comes to drinking alcohol. One is “just say no,” which for the majority of the population is not an option. The other is to “drink responsibly.” But what does that mean? If you ask five random people to define responsible drinking, you will most likely get five completely different answers. This invalidates the term because it can be defined in so many different ways. Party with a Plan® gives a concise and research based formula that teaches people how to drink and lower their risk of negative consequences. It’s like creating a speed limit for drinking. If you stick to the speed limit, your chance of problems is minimal. However, the more you go over the speed limit, and the more often you go over the speed limit, the more you put yourself and others at risk. This book is long overdue!

Let’s talk about alcohol. It’s been around for centuries, but up until now there’s never been a formula that teaches people the correct way to drink and stay out of trouble. Sure, we talk about “moderate drinking” and “responsible drinking,” but those terms are so vague that they don’t give anything specific to grab on to. Could you imagine a new group of baseball players coming out to the field and the coach says, “Ok, let’s play baseball. Now get out there and play in moderation.” Of course not! We teach them rules, what is ok and what’s not ok. Same with driving, we teach new drivers the rules of the road, how to anticipate potential problems, and when it’s not a good idea to drive at all. We don’t hand the keys to a 16-year-old and say, “Remember to drive responsibly.”

 

After all these centuries, we now have solid guidelines that teach people the difference between low-risk drinking and high-risk drinking. The formula is research based, easy to understand, and simple to follow. The reason it is called low-risk is because there is always some risk involved if someone drinks. Look at it this way; you can stay in the shallow end of the pool, wear a life vest, and have a lifeguard present, but there’s still a risk of drowning. The only way to guarantee zero risk is to not get in the pool in the first place. Of course, with all those measures taken, the chance is slight, and you are a low-risk candidate for problems, but there’s still a risk. The same goes for drinking. Following the low-risk guidelines will lower your risk. The more precautions you take, the smaller the chance of getting in trouble.

 

Another analogy I use is the speed limit. When we see the number on a speed limit sign, we know the speed at which it is safe to drive. We might not agree with the limit, but that’s what it is. And following the limit puts us at a lower risk for problems. However, the more we go over the speed limit, and the more often we go over the speed limit, the more we put ourselves and others at risk. Now it’s the same for drinking. Now people will know if they are going over the limit and how much they are going over the limit. My hope is that more people will follow the guidelines and we will have less tragedies in our society because of high-risk drinking choices.
