Drink Less

It may seem like you don't drink much, but a drink or two most evenings can do harm to your body.

From making you gain weight to increasing your risk of cancer, alcohol can have serious effects on your body.

The more you drink, and the more often, the greater the risk to your health.

Where to start?

It's important to know how much you are drinking and the easy ways you can cut back.

If you regularly drink more than 14 units a week, try these simple tips to help you cut down.

Fourteen units is equivalent to six pints of average strength beer or 10 small glasses of low strength wine.

What did you drink in the last 7 days?
