Drink less

Do you like a drink?

Do you unwind with a glass of something in the evening? It’s easy to let the occasional, relaxing drink turn into several glasses most days.

Regularly drinking more than 14 units of alcohol a week is a risk to your health. (That’s the same as six pints of average strength beer). In Kensington and Chelsea, 15% of adults drink over the recommended 14 units of alcohol a week.

Cutting back makes sense. Whether you’re cutting alcohol out of your life completely or cutting down gradually, you’re bound to look and feel better quickly.

In the short term, you might have more energy, sleep better, feel less moody or lose weight. In the long term, you’ll be reducing your risk of cancer, liver disease and heart disease. You could also lower your blood pressure.
