How Much Is Too Much?

Many people drink alcohol; the majority do so without any problems. Drinking can be enjoyable and sometimes can help you to unwind or relax. But too much and drinking too frequently can lead to a range of difficulties.

The daily recommended sensible drinking limits are:

  • men should not regularly drink more than three to four units of alcohol per day
  • women should not regularly drink more than two to three units of alcohol per day
  • you should take a break for 48-hours after a heavy drinking session to let you body recover.

There is no guaranteed safe level of drinking, but if you drink below the recommended daily limits, the risks of harming your health are low

If you feel you have an alcohol problem the Liverpool Community Alcohol Service can provide support and advice to help you manage your drinking and reduce your consumption to an acceptable level
