  • How much alcohol do you drink?



    Single small shot of spirits * (25ml, ABV 40%) 1 unit
    Alcopop (275ml, ABV 5.5%) 1.5 units
    Small glass of red/white/rosť wine (125ml, ABV 12%) 1.5 units
    Bottle of lager/beer/cider (330ml, ABV 5%) 1.7 units
    Can of lager/beer/cider (440ml, ABV 5.5%) 2 units
    Pint of lower-strength lager/beer/cider (ABV 3.6%) 2 units
    Standard glass of red/white/rosť wine (175ml, ABV 12%) 2.1 units
    Pint of higher-strength lager/beer/cider (ABV 5.2%) 3 units
    Large glass of red/white/rosť wine (250ml, ABV 12%) 3 units
    The NHS recommends that the average person consumes less than the recommended units of alcohol per week - that number is currently 14 units or less per week for both men and women and if you drink regularly (see=most weeks), then that weekly consumption should ideally be spread across 3 or more days.

    So UKMIX - using the image above to help you work it out, how much alcohol do you genuinely drink on average per week?

    I haven't consumed a drop of alcohol since August 2018 - no real reason behind why I stopped. I just think that I finally had an excuse to justify what little I did drink by "blaming" it on the fact that I had just passed my driving test and was now driving everywhere.

      I do not drink alcohol at all. I only drink on New Year's Eve and that's about it for the whole year for me. I do not like alcohol, any kind of alcohol. (I also don't drink coffee).

        Way too much, I literally can outdrink anyone that I know and I have the reputation of being able to drink large amounts of alcohol very fast

          I haven't drank any alcohol since 2015.

          I went through a phase of social drinking in 2014 and looked through my yearly transactions at a well known drinking establishment and was at the amounts I was spending. After having to avoid alcohol due to medication I was taking in 2015 I decided to stop altogether.

          Drinking, especially in bars/pubs/clubs is a waste of money.

            None, tastes disgusting, tried once long time ago (when at uni) and that was enough for me to decide against it. Aside from that, it has negative effects on the body and zero nutritional value (I can think of hundreds of superior ways to consume those carbs ...)

                I'm surprised at the results thus far!

                Only a very small set of respondents but over 70% don't drink a drop!

                    I went for 1-5, I normally go out once a week for a couple of drinks. Try not to exceed that too much, mainly due to how much money drinks cost.

                      it varies on the week, but if i can I have one glass of wine per day. May replace it with one measure of whiskey or one pint of beer. But in general I take something each day.

                      I answered 11-15.

                      Some doctors even say one glass of red wine per day is good for blood preasure, and I want to believe that lol

                        Voted 1-5 units, I rarely drink, not a big fan. Maybe a few beers per week socially. When I go out maybe a few beers or a few gin-tonics, but I go out cca once a month.

                            Wait this makes it sound like I am a total alcoholic

                            The thing is that my body is able to process way more alcohol than the average person, dunno why, I must have a larger liver or whatever. I have only been drunk once I think.

                                  When I drink on a night out I'll exceed those 14 units easily but that's only once in two weeks these days and I stick to beer or wine mostly. I never drink alcohol when I'm not hanging out with friends or family. Definitely a social drinker, otherwise it's too unhealthy and expensive for me.

                                    It is a choice though. When I was in this "culture" where everybody around me drank, I still didn't.

                                      Idk what to pick in the poll.

                                      I only really drink every 2-3 months on a night out, but Iíll consume maybe 14-20+ units in that night.

                                      Iíll maybe have one drink with friends at a restaurant now and again, but most weeks I donít drink and I never drink at home.

                                        Went for 1-5 cos I only really drink once a month these days and it’s about 15-20 units a time so I averaged it out.

                                          Where's the option for non drinkers or people who drink very occasionally?

                                          I drink very occasionally myself, I can go for 6 months+ without having a single alcoholic drink, only when I'm in big groups (which is not often) I'd feel a bit obligated to drink.

                                          So 0 for me I guess.

                                                    0 for me, too.
                                                    Is it offensive to fall in love with you and everything you do
                                                    and everything you stand for?
                                                    Could I break through your invisible wall, could I hide my pride for once,
                                                    just to tell you that I see more?

                                                      If you'd deleted the poll, yes - could've checked the database. But because you edited the poll, nope.

                                                      Will tag everyone who's read the topic and ask them to re-vote.

                                                      Can y'all re-vote in the poll please if you did vote before?
