Why should I cut back on alcohol?

We know that people who drink heavily are more likely to die of heart disease than those who do not.

So, if you drink, do so in moderation. BUPA recommends that a safe limit for men is no more than 3 units of alcohol per day, and for women, no more than 2 units per day. (One unit is equal to half a pint of normal strength beer or lager, or a single pub measure of spirits, wine or sherry.)

Try to leave two alcohol-free days a week and avoid alcohol binges. What is important is alcohol drunk on each day, so if you have drunk no units for a week you cannot assume it is safe to drink 21 units (for men) or 14 units (for women) in a binge.

You may have seen recent reports that drinking in moderation (with an emphasis on moderation) may offer some protection against heart disease. But, if you never drink or seldom drink, do not change your habits – alcohol should not be taken as a medicine.
