Alcohol drinking guidelines

There is no safe limit for drinking alcohol. Drinking even low amounts of alcohol increases the risk of diseases like cancer.

To keep health risks from alcohol to a low level it is safest not to drink more than 14 units a week on a regular basis.

If you regularly drink as much as 14 units per week, it is best to spread your drinking evenly over 3 or more days. If you have one or two heavy drinking episodes a week, you increase your risks of death from long term illness and from accidents and injuries.

The risk of developing a range of health problems increases the more you drink on a regular basis.

If you wish to cut down the amount you drink, a good way to help achieve this is to have several drink-free days each week.

Why is alcohol a problem in Wales?

45% of men and 34% of women report drinking above the recommended guidelines. Alcohol is the cause of around 1,500 deaths a year, on top of a cost of more than £1 billion of harm to society.

Alcohol related deaths are higher in the most deprived areas of Wales.

Growing up in families where alcohol or substance misuse is a problem can have negative impacts which persist long into adulthood.

14% of adults have been exposed to alcohol misuse during childhood. Reducing Adverse Childhood Experiences can reduce levels of harmful drinking by 35%.
