Raise your glass to an on­line booze tool

The Guardian - G2 - - News -

Pub­lic Health Eng­land and the char­ity Drinkaware have a new on­line tool that al­lows you to work out how much you drink com­pared with the UK av­er­age. Us­ing last week as a guide – which, ad­mit­tedly, was a fairly so­cia­ble one – I have just been given the re­sult that “99% of fe­males drink less than you”. I am not proud of this, I am com­pletely hor­ri­fied and ashamed – so in that sense the tool is do­ing its job. My poor lit­tle liver de­serves bet­ter than this. Yet other users seem less re­pen­tant: “Too pissed to see cal­cu­la­tor,” wrote one. Don’t say that you weren’t warned.
