New government alcohol unit guidelines

The recommended guidelines are that men and women do not regularly drink more than 14 units per week.

Unit guidelines are now the same for men and women. 14 units is the equivalent of drinking 6 pints of 4% beer or 6 175ml glasses of 13% wine.

These 14 units are best spread evenly across the week with regular drink-free days.

If you are pregnant, the best advice is to avoid alcohol altogether. The more you drink the greater the risk to your baby.

It is recommended that no alcohol is given or drank by children under the age of 15 years.

Regularly drinking above the recommended limits increases your risk of long-term illness and poor health. The more you drink, the greater the risk. Drinking less now can make a big difference to your health later on. And for those who already have a medical condition (such as diabetes or high blood pressure) or are suffering from depression or anxiety, alcohol often makes life worse.
