The consumption of alcohol is a regular occurrence in our society. It's strongly linked to how we like to socialise and when consumed within moderate limits it isn't generally a problem for most people. For some people - men over 40 and women past the menopauses - low intakes of one or two drinks a day can actually reduce the long-term risk of cardiovascular disease. However, drinking more doesn't offer more protection, and above the recommended limits alcohol soon begins to increase your risk of stroke, heart attack and heart failure.
To help us quantify the amount of we drink, alcohol is measured in units. This is easily calculated by multiplying the alcohol percentage of your drink with the volume of the drink (in litres).
For example a large glass (250ml) of wine (strength 12%) will contain 3 units of alcohol - worked out like this:
0.25 litres x 12 = 3 units You can quickly work out your own alcohol intake with this easy calculator.

Please answer the questions in the short questionnaire to enable us to assess your alcohol consumption rate and offer advice if necessary.
