What the limits per day?

Men and women are advised not to drink more than 14 units of alcohol a week or 2 units per day.

In terms of wine
  • Do not drink more than 1 medium glass per day (or 7 per week)
  • By a medium glass we mean 175 ml per glass.
  • You may have seen or read that 1 glass of wine is 1 unit - BUT that is only for a small glass of wine (125ml) - which is NOT the amount most people drink!   They drink a medium glass.
In terms of pints of beer or cider
  • Do not drink more than 1 pint per day (or 7 per week)
In terms of regular bottles of beer
  • Do not drink more than 1 bottle per day (or 9 per week)
  • Each bottle is 1.5 units.  You can actually have about 1 and one-third of a bottle a day BUT it's difficulty to drink just one-third of a bottle, so we've rounded it up to 1 bottle per day.
In terms of 275ml bottles of alcopops
  • Do not drink more than 1 bottle per day (or 9 per week)
  • Each bottle is 1.5 units.  You can actually have about 1 and one-third of a bottle a day BUT it's difficulty to drink just one-third of a bottle, so we've rounded it up to 1 bottle per day.
