Alcohol Awareness

Alcohol Awareness

Lots of us enjoy a drink and for many people it’s an enjoyable part of life.

However it’s easy to lose track of how much you are drinking and you could find yourself drinking at a harmful level that could affect your health or other aspects of your life.

Our self-assessment tool here  will help you understand how your drinking may be affecting your health.

If you’re drinking too much then cutting down can have lots of benefits for your health and wellbeing.

These include:

  • Better sleep and more energy
  • No morning after hangover
  • Improved mood
  • Helping you lose weight
  • Reducing the risk of you developing serious health problems such as high blood pressure, liver damage and some types of cancer

If you think that you, or someone you know, might have an alcohol related problem then there are groups and organisations out there to give you a helping hand.

Below you can find a range of places that offer support and advice around alcohol.
