Two alcohol free days a week, say experts

9th January 2012

A report by a committee of MPs has said people in Britain should ensure they have two days off alcohol every week.

The report said: "We suggest that, if daily guidelines are retained, the Government consider simplifying the guidelines so that, as is the case in Scotland, all individuals are advised to take at least two alcohol-free days a week. This would enforce the message that drinking every day should be avoided, and would helpfully quantify what 'regular' drinking means to the public."
