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!

A Guide to Successful Drinking
A Guest Post by Randy Haveson
For years we’ve heard the same messages about alcohol. “Be responsible” or “drink in moderation.” But what do those mean? Ask five random people to define those phrases and you get five different answers. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a “how to” guide for drinking? A way to know what is safe and what is not. Well, now there is.
Party with a Plan® is a research based formula that teaches people the difference between low-risk and high-risk use of alcohol. Just like we know wearing a seat belt lowers our risk for added harm in case of an accident. Just like we know wearing a helmet lowers our risk for additional harm when we ride a bicycle or motorcycle. Now we have low-risk guidelines that teach people how to use alcohol and lower their risk for problems. Imagine no more deaths on the highway because of alcohol, no more alcoholism, no blackout mishaps, or alcohol induced violence. By following the Party with a Plan® guidelines, you too can be a successful drinker!
