Alcohol-free bars – level 2

04-08-2021 07:00

Many people are starting to enjoy their time with family or friends without drinking alcohol, and people are opening alcohol-free bars.

You would think that more people drank alcohol during the coronavirus pandemic, but it was not true. Last year, sales of alcohol-free spirits grew almost 30%, and sales of spirits fell about 7%. There are challenges like Dry January when people do not drink alcoholic drinks for the whole month. Many people care more about their health, and they stop drinking alcohol or they drink it less.

Alcohol can have a bad impact on both mental and physical health. Besides the hangover, some people can feel upset even two or three days after they drink alcohol. When people stop drinking alcohol, they feel much better, they save money, and they have better relationships.

Difficult words: spirit (a strong alcoholic drink such as vodka, gin, or whiskey), challenge (a difficult task or fight in which people can take part, and they can see how mentally or physically strong they are), hangover (a headache or other unpleasant feeling after drinking too much alcohol).
