Ever told yourself a little white lie about how much you drink?

The truth is, drinking alcohol most nights can harm your health, the more you drink, the higher your risk of serious health problems. This includes heart and liver disease, certain cancers, brain damage and strokes.

There are also hidden calories in most alcoholic drinks. Did you know that a large glass of wine has the same number of calories as an ice cream!

Medical warning

Get medical advice before you stop drinking if you have physical withdrawal symptoms (like shaking, sweating or feeling anxious until you have your first drink of the day). It can be dangerous to stop drinking too quickly without proper support.
