Unwind Alcohol

Drink Less

Did you know that 1 in 3 people in the South West drink too much alcohol, and don't know it?  Many adults drink alcohol at levels that damage their health in the short and long-term.

Current guidance suggests that it’s healthy to drink no more than 14 units each week. That's the same as 5 pints of beer or lager, 6 medium glasses of wine, 10 small glasses of wine or 7 double measures of spirits.

‘Binging’ is not good for you, so instead try not to drink all 14 units in one session, and aim for at least 3 days alcohol free each week.

If a couple of drinks a week is turning into a couple of drinks a night, then you can get information by speaking to the Healthy Cornwall service on 01209 615600, or send them an email.

You can also search the Android or Apple app store for One You Drinks Tracker and One You Days Off apps to help you keep an eye on your alcohol intake.

However, if you know that you already need help, support or treatment for yourself or someone else, please call Addaction Cornwall on 0333 2000 325 or visit the Safer Cornwall website.
