Most people agree drinking heavily every night of the week isn't a healthy long-term strategy. Equally, most Kiwis baulk at the idea of abstaining completely. As a result, we live in a middle ground. Many of us run spasmodic drinking patterns leading to inconvenient surprise hangovers, spiralling life chaos and massive, flabby tummies.

There is another way: targeted drinking. It might just change your life.

If you target your drinking you take some control over it. We all deserve a blowout, so pick a night and get your ducks in a row. Focus your drinking energy on that one


1. Take aim

2. Prepare a soft landing

3. Lay down the law

4. Good crew

5. One night at a time
