Track your drinking (En)
Use the NHS Choices interactive tools to calculate alcohol units, assess your drinking levels and track your drinking over time.
Are you drinking within recommended limits? Use the drinking self-assessment tool to find out if you’re drinking too much.
It’ll help you to assess the effects of your drinking and, if you are drinking too much, suggest ways of cutting down.
The NHS recommends:
‘Regularly’ means drinking this amount every day or most days of the week.
Use the alcohol unit calculator to find out how many units there are in a single drink or in a number of drinks.
If you’re on the move, you can also text Units to 64746 to access the NHS units calculator on any smartphone.
If you have an iPhone or iPod touch you can download the drinks tracker from the iTunes app store for free.
The app allows you to calculate units in your drinks, track your drinking over months and get personalised feedback.
The desktop tracker< lets you calculate units, keep a drinks diary on your desktop and provides personalised feedback on your drinking.
Available to both Windows and Mac users.
Keeping a drinks diary< for a week can be a real eye-opener to people who don’t realise how much they’re drinking.
