Alcohol

Drink Less Blackpool

Drinking a little less can benefit your health, your weight and your pocket

Regularly drinking more than 14 units a week can lead to serious health problems, like liver disease, heart attacks and cancer.  Fourteen units are equivalent to 6 pints of average strength beer or 6 medium (175ml) glasses of average strength wine.   

To keep your risk low, guidelines for the UK recommend that:

  • Adults do not regularly drink more than 14 units a week
  • People try and limit the amount of alcohol they drink on any single occasion
  • It’s safest not to drink alcohol whilst pregnant
  • For children and young people, an alcohol-free childhood is the healthiest and best option

If you regularly drink as many as 14 units per week, it's best to spread your drinking evenly over 3 or more days.
