It’s now thought that the evidence on a protective effect from moderate intake is weaker than we thought.

This is why he previously held position that some level of alcohol was good for the heart has been revised.

Writers and other celebrities have left us famous -sometimes funny, other times insightful- quotes in regard to drinking:

“Fill with mingled cream and amber,/ I will drain that glass again./ Such hilarious visions clamber/ Through the chamber of my brain —/ Quaintest thoughts — queerest fancies/ Come to life and fade away;/ What care I how time advances?/ I am drinking ale today.”―Edgar Allan Poe
“I’m an occasional drinker, the kind of guy who goes out for a beer and wakes up in Singapore with a full beard.” ―Raymond Chandler
“First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you.” ―F. Scott Fitzgerald
 However, the truth is that alcohol poses several health risks:

More than 14 units of alcohol a week damages your health.

The recommended weekly limit of 14 units is equivalent to 3 liters of average-strength beer or 11 glasses of wine.

There’s now a better understanding of the link between booze and some illnesses, including a range of cancers.

So, you might want to spread your intake over 4 days if you regularly take as much as 14 units a week.

If you really want to cut down, try to have several drink-free days each week

To reduce your health risks, try to limit how much you drink.  Do it at a slower pace and with food, and alternate with soda, juices or water.
