One Too Many?

The amount of alcohol we drink can slowly creep up without us really noticing. It might start out as one a night while you're watching the sport on TV, just one to unwind at the end of the day, and then beers out with mates at the weekend.

If you're not sure how much you're drinking, or want to know the equivalent number of cheeseburgers or packets of crisps you've drunk, then our app will help you find out!

Did you know that drinking even one beer a night is one too many? That's because our body should have 48 hours off after any drink, to allow it to recover.

We're only meant to drink 14 units a week - check out our helpful animation so you know what that means.

 

Alcohol and Mental Health

It's been a challenging year and many of us are feeling more stressed and anxious than usual. In times of stress we can find ourselves drinking more often or more heavily.
