To keep health risks from alcohol to a low level, both men and women are advised not to regularly drink more than 14 units a week.

A unit of alcohol is 8g or 10ml of pure alcohol, which is about:

  • Half a pint of lower to normal-strength lager/beer/cider (ABV 3.6%)
  • A single small shot measure (25ml) of spirits
  • A small glass of red/white/rose wine (1.5 units, 125ml, ABV 12%)
