How much is too much?

Alcohol Units for men and women

The safe limit for women is:
2-3 units a day or approximately 21 units a week. 
This is the equivalent of two bottles of wine a week. 

The safe limit for men is:
3-4 units a day or approximately 28 units a week.
This is the equivalent of three bottles of wine a week.

Allister Grant, consultant hepatologist at Leicester’s Hospitals says: “As a liver expert I frequently see people who drink a few glasses of wine a night, which is actually way above the safely suggested limit and can lead to health problems in the long term.”
