When how much alcohol is too much?
Alcohol consumptions - UK guidelines for Men and Women
UK guidelines say there is no such thing as a safe level of drinking. The UK's chief medical officers say any amount of alcohol can increase the risk of cancer. Men and women who drink regularly should consume no more than 14 units a week - equivalent to six pints of beer or seven glasses of wine. Pregnant women should not drink at all.
If people drink, it should be moderately over three or more days and some days should be alcohol-free. Nor should people "save up" their units and drink them all in one or two goes. Heavy drinking sessions increase the risk of accidents and injury
