Safer Drinking Tips (LRDG)

Drinking is a personal choice. If you choose to drink moderate your drinking by following these tips:

  • Set limits for yourself and stick to them.
  • Drink slowly. Have no more than 2 drinks in any 3 hours.
  • For every drink of alcohol, have one non-alcoholic drink.
  • Eat before and while you are drinking.
  • Always consider your age, body weight and health problems that might suggest lower limits.
  • While drinking may provide health benefits for certain groups of people, do not start to drink or increase your drinking for health benefits.

Low-risk drinking helps to promote a culture of moderation and supports healthy lifestyles.
