Alcohol Misuse

Alcohol misuse means drinking excessively – more than the lower-risk limits of alcohol consumption.

Alcohol consumption is measured in units. A unit of alcohol is 10ml of pure alcohol, which is about:

  • half a pint of lower to normal-strength lager/beer/cider (ABV 3.6%)
  • a single small shot measure (25ml) of spirits (25ml, ABV 40%)

A small glass (125ml) of wine contains about 1.5 units of alcohol.
