HOW DOES YOUR WEEKLY DRINKING ADD UP?
Did you know, alcohol is one of the leading risk factors associated with breast, bowel, and mouth cancers. It's recommended that you don't drink more than 14 units of alcohol a week, spread out over at least 3 days, to keep the risks from alcohol low. But where do you start?
NHS Inform - Alcohol Misuse
Alcohol misuse means drinking excessively - more than the recommended limits of alcohol consumption. This can lead to a number of harmful physical and psychological effects, such as alcohol poisoning, cirrhosis of the liver, inability to work and socialise and destructive behaviours, such as drink-driving.
