Alcohol Awareness Week
Alcohol Awareness Week, a week where the affects of alcohol are highlighted for individuals, families, communities and society. Alcohol problems are a major concern for public health in Scotland. Increased alcohol consumption can increase risk of cancer and alcohol harms cost Scotland £3.6 billion a year in health, social care, crime and productive capacity and wider costs.
1 in 4 people drink at harmful levels (defined as more than 14 units per week). The Count14 campaign run by the Scottish Government aims to raise awareness of the recommended maximum number of units to be consumed within one week. Women and men should not drink over 14 units of alcohol per week and the number of units should be spread over at least three days within the week. Tracking your alcohol consumption can be an eye opener and is now easy to do on count14.scot. Instead of reaching for the alcohol after a hard days work, why not try a mocktail or having an alcohol free night.
