    Assess your drinking

    Take the test to understand more about the impact of your drinking. Find out whether your
    relationship with alcohol is about right or whether you're over doing it and need to take action.

    Please provide us with the following details:

    By finding out your age and gender we can give you more personalised help and advice. Please be aware that this test is for those over 18 years of age. Please note all information is anonymous. The feedback given as part of the test is tailored to over 18s. Many substances such as alcohol and cannabis, can have different and more negative effects on under 18s than it does for adults. For that reason we don’t want to mislead or give false information by letting anyone under 18 proceed with the test.

    Drinking less may be a good idea for you

    There are plenty of practical ways you can start to cut down and stay on track

    Space out alcohol

    Sipping a soft drink between alcoholic drinks slows down the rate of your drinking

    Drink-free days

    If you want to cut down the amount you're drinking, a great way is to have several drink-free days a week.

    Eat up

    A healthy meal before you go out, and snacks between drinks can help to slow down the absorption of alcohol

    Dinner only drinking

    Instead of opening your whole evening up to drinking, why not just allocate dinner as the time you enjoy a drink?
