Sensible drinking guidelines:
NHS advice states that men should not regularly drink more than 3-4 units of alcohol a day and women should not regularly drink more than 2-3 units a day (and don't drink any alcohol a couple of days a week). A unit of alcohol is 10 ml (8g) of pure alcohol. The number of units in an alcoholic drink will depend on its strength as well as the size of the glass. Counting units can help us to keep track of what we are actually drinking. Some examples of popular drinks and their alcohol content include:
- 1 single gin and tonic = 1 unit
- ½ pint of 5% cider = 1.5 units
- 1 alcopop = 1.4 units
- 1 glass (175ml) of 13% wine = 2.3 units
- 1 pint of 5% lager = 3 units
- 1 bottle of 12.5% wine = 10 units
Please remember – the daily guidelines do not apply to young people and women during or when planning pregnancy. Local support, advice and treatment.
Warning: Mixing alcohol with illegal or prescribed drugs is very dangerous and could also reduce the effects of medication.
