How do we define excessive drinking
Excessive drinking is defined by the World Health Organisation to be drinking more than 60g of alcohol per day (slightly lower for women), for simplicity FTS use a definition of average units per week. To define the point at which drinking becomes excessive FTS use a general cut-off of >60 units per week for men and >55 units per week for women, which equates approximately to 4 or 5 pints of beer, 1 to 1.5 bottles of wine or one third of a bottle of spirits per day.
