It’s one thing to enjoy a drink to unwind at the end of a long day.
But when that turns into two or three every night, you can end up drinking too much without even realising.
That can affect your body in all sorts of ways – putting on weight, disturbing your sleep and increasing your chances of developing high blood pressure, liver problems, heart attack and some types of cancer.
It’s easy to reduce those risks, with some help.
Current advice for men and women is to drink fewer than 14 units of alcohol a week and to spread drinking over 3 days or more if you do.
The One You Cheshire East Service has put together a whole host of tips and guidance, alongside community support services to help you keep your drinking under control
