Experience the ripple effects of cutting back on alcohol.

For you and your community!

Ripple is a project supporting women aged 40-65 in the ACT to reduce the amount of alcohol they drink. 

Many women experience the benefits of cutting back on alcohol – or giving up entirely – as they approach their 40s and beyond.

Cutting back on alcohol can improve your sleep, mood, energy, concentration, and immunity. It can help you to maintain a healthy weight and reduce your risk of several cancers, heart disease and stroke.

Explore this site to find out more about how alcohol affects your health, the benefits of cutting back, the external influences on your drinking, and how you can take steps to reduce the risks from alcohol for yourself, your friends and family.

The less you drink, the healthier you are.
