The latest guidelines for alcohol consumption no longer differentiate between men
and women and 14 units per week is now considered to be the safe limit.
The graphic below shows what that figure equates to in terms of actual drinks.
Most bottles do show this information but how many of us measure the amount we pour in the glass?
You would be surprised at how small a single spirit measure of 25ml looks.
Also, do be aware that licensed premises can choose to serve a single measure of 25ml OR 35ml.
And one more thing…don’t save up your units for one night!
