If you’d like to cut down to a lower risk level try swapping your usual for:

A slower drink
A lower strength drink
A meal time only drink

If you'd like to take a break from drinking:

Spend more time with friend who will be supportive.
Avoid situations when you are likely to drink.
Enjoy your break from alcohol and be good to yourself e.g. don’t be too self-critical, buy yourself those shoes you’ve had your eye on, take up that hobby you’ve always wanted to try.

If you are someone who drinks daily or nearly every day and want to take a break then check with a healthcare professional first before making changes.

If you want to have a safer night out:

Take your time – don’t get into rounds
Stay hydrated – have a few glasses of water during the evening
Don’t drink too much before going out

Our Advice

You are likely drinking at a level that could put your health at risk. You may find that drinking is starting to take over your life perhaps at the expense of the things that you’ve always found important such as friends, family, employment or your health. There are many benefits to drinking less but if we drink daily or most days then stopping suddenly can bring about dangerous withdrawal symptoms. Before making any changes, talk to a healthcare professional about your plan.

If you would like these results emailed to you, please add your email address below. If you’d like to make changes with the support of a professional then please tick the box and GDAS will get in touch to discuss support options with you.

If you would prefer not to speak to us we recommend you share these results with a healthcare professional such as your doctor who will be able to give you a better understanding of the potential risks related to your drinking. Either way, well done on making the first steps towards change.

Our Advice

Congratulations, your results indicate that your drinking is unlikely to be putting you at risk. Keep it up but remember as we get older it takes our bodies longer to break down alcohol. This means it won’t take much for drinking to sneak up on us. Find out more about alcohol by visiting www.dan247.org.uk.

Our Advice

The way you are drinking at the moment might be putting your health at risk. If you drink regularly it can be dangerous to stop suddenly. If you want to make changes to your drinking we recommend that you access professional support so this can be done safely. In the meantime don’t forget to eat on the days that you drink and make sure your oven is turned off before you start drinking. Try alternating your alcoholic drinks with soft drinks like water. This will give your body more time to break down the alcohol you have consumed.
