Drinking and you

Drinking alcohol affects your body in many ways, from gaining weight to reducing the quality of your sleep.
It also increases your risk of developing health problems such as high blood pressure, liver problems, heart attack and some types of cancer. It’s important to know how much you are drinking and that there are easy ways you can cut back, without cutting alcohol out completely.

See the links below to find out more about safe levels of alcohol, the dangers of drinking too much and tips on cutting down your alcohol consumption.
