The UK’s Chief Medical Officers' (CMO) reccomend that both men and women are safest not to regularly drink more than 14 units a week. 14 single measures of 40% spirit is equal to the CMO's alcohol unit guidelines.

If you regularly drink over these guidelines, you could be increasing your chances of developing long-term health conditions.

There are often several measures of spirits in cocktails, alcopops or pre-mixed drinks – even if they don’t taste particularly strong. Always check the volume of the drink you’re consuming.

Checking a spirit's ABV (alcohol by volume) will give you a guide to how strong it is. The ABV tells you what percentage of the drink is made up of alcohol. For example, a spirit with 40% ABV is 40% pure alcohol. The higher the percentage, the more alcohol there is.
