Alcohol Units Chart

 

Alcohol Units Chart


Everyday we 're warned of the dangers of binge drinking, a problem that effects all sectors of society from the very young to older, more mature adults. Out local supermarkets and off licenses are bursting with special and cheap alcohol offers and we even have special brands such as Alcopops that have been specifically designed to entice the young into drinking. Alcohol abuse is rapidly becoming a major problem in society. Not only does it cause irreparable health difficulties such as liver failure, it ages the skin and leads to increased violence, particularly amongst the young. Many people under-estimate how much they actually drink. Use our UK alcohol unit chart checker below to find out exactly how many alcohol units you drink each week - but remember, be honest with yourself!

When you've finished our UK alcohol unit chart checker will tell you how many units of alcohol you are consuming each day, and you can compare this with the recommended daily limits. Doctors recommend as the sensible level of drinking for an adult not to drink more than 14 units a week on a regular basis and to spread this drinking over three or more days if you regularly drink as much as 14 units a week.
