Al­co­hol-free Days

The People's Friend - - Health -

We all know we should only drink al­co­hol in mod­er­a­tion, but if you’ve got an end-of-the-day “wine o’clock” habit, it can be dif­fi­cult to cut down.

New re­search shows reg­u­lar drink­ing in­creases blood pressure and weak­ens the heart mus­cle, and that re­duc­ing your in­take re­ally can re­duce your risk of se­ri­ous heart prob­lems. Aware­ness char­ity Drinkaware says the best way to cut down and keep within the 14 units per week limit is to es­tab­lish the best “drink-free days” each week to suit you.

En­joy go­ing “drink-free”.
