Enjoying alcohol the safe and healthy way

To keep health risks from alcohol to a low level, the UK Chief Medical Officers’ advise it is safest not to drink more than 14 units a week on a regular basis.

If you regularly drink as much as 14 units per week, it's best to spread your drinking evenly over three or more days.

If you want to cut down the amount you drink, it is advisable to have several drink-free days each week.
