How much is too much?
The government advises that people should not regularly drink more than 14 units per week - this applies to both men and women. 14 units is equivalent to a bottle and a half of wine or five pints of export-type lager (5% abv).
You shouldn't interpret the guidance as allowing you to "save up" your units so you can drink them all on a Saturday night - if you do drink as much as 14 units per week, it is best to spread this evenly over a week.
What is a unit?
The size and strength of your drink will determine the number of units it contains. It's not quite as simple as one drink, one unit – Sake is generally higher in alcohol than wine and is on average 16% ABV. This can range between just over one unit and more than three units depending on the size of the glass and type of Sake. Sake is best drink in small volumes with food.
