Alcohol Awareness Week

After a long day, many of us like to unwind with a nice glass of wine or a quick beer, but the odd drink in the evening can quickly become two or three regular glasses, most evenings.

This will have a significant impact on your body and can lead to serious problems like liver damage, and a greater risk of getting cancer or having a heart attack.

So this Alcohol Awareness Week why not check your drinks and make sure they're not sneaking up on you?

Men and women shouldn't drink more than 14 units of alcohol a week, which is the same as about six pints of average strength beer a week or six 175ml glasses of wine. If you're regularly drinking more than this you could be damaging your health.

The Don't Bottle It Up website has more information as well as a quiz about safe alcohol consumption levels.

More information on safe drinking levels is also available on the Health Surrey website.
