Did you know?

Current Australian guidelines recommend that to reduce the risk of harm from alcohol-related disease or injury, healthy adults should drink no more than 10 standard drinks a week and no more than 4 standard drinks on any one day. The less you drink, the lower your risk of harm from alcohol.

How can you reduce your alcohol intake?

  • Enjoy a mocktail! 
  • Drink water instead of alcohol to quench your thirst 
  • Sip alcoholic drinks slowly 
  • Alternate alcoholic drinks with water.
