Many of us enjoy attending picnics, BBQs and parties, and having
a glass of wine or a cool beer to unwind and enjoy yourself.
Problem is before you know it you've drunk half a bottle of wine
and you could be on the path towards harmful drinking.
- Most people who regularly drink more than the low risk
guidelines don’t see any harmful effects at first.
- You don’t have to be an alcoholic to be at risk of damaging
- The effects of alcohol on your health will depend on how much
you drink - the more you drink the greater the risk.
What can you do?
The NHS 'One
You' campaign has a great webpage with tips
on how to cut down drinking alcohol, the impact of alcohol on
your body, calories in alcohol, and a drinks
tracker app to calculate how many units you are consuming.
You can also take the free and confidential alcohol test
to find out how risky your alcohol consumption is.
If you or someone you know needs support speak to your GP, or
services in Medway.
