Know your score quiz
Many people don't know how much they drink and how it might be affecting their health, work and relationships. Do you? Take the quiz to discover your score and get advice on ways to cut down.
Learn to limit your drinking
Try to limit your weekly alcohol intake to 14 units, but don’t drink all your units at once.
You should also try to have at least 2 drink free days per week. Spread your drinking out over a few days if you drink as much as 14 units.
Try using Alcohol Change UK's unit calculator to work out how many units you drink.

Go to the Lower My Drinking website to check how much you’re drinking and the impact it could be having on your health. It only takes a few minutes.
Then get the app to get exactly the right help you need to cut down, if that’s what you choose to do.
