Sensible Drinking?

Alcohol content – one unit is equal to:

Half a pint of beer

One glass of wine

One measure of spirits

Recommended daily intake should not exceed:

Men – four units

Women – three units (including two alcoholfree days a week)

Do you ever exceed these recommended limits?

If the answer is yes, how do you feel about challenging a
patient’s drinking behaviour? Is this hypocritical?
