    You would be extremely safe to do that, and wise.

    Hi,

    How much are you drinking? I would say that yes gradually cutting down slowly would be the safest way.

    I'm not a professional by any means, I'm just going off my own experiences.

    Depends exactly just how much 2.8% larger you’re drinking and for how long, before I’d say it was extremely safe.

    I am not a medic, just someone who was never successful at tapering. Tried doing it loads of times.

    However, tapering if done slowly and realistically, is much better than just stopping and going cold turkey.

    You would get cerebral oedema and Die from that before you would get Alcohol Poisoning at 2.8%. So again, your plan sounds like a winner wink
