6. Avoid alcohol and caffeine
Getting hot flashes? It’s time to start avoiding coffee, alcohol, and other caffeinated drinks. Caffeine and alcohol are triggers for hot flashes and the more you drink, the more frequent they’ll become. It’s not ideal but it’s something you’ll have to live with, at least for the time being! As the years go by you’ll find that the effects that alcohol and caffeine have gradually decrease or fade into insignificance; so while you may not be able to enjoy the drinks you love right now, you certainly don’t have to stop drinking them forever!
