Women urged to drink less

A NEW campaign has been launched to encourage women to think about the health effects of regularly drinking to excess.

The Scottish Government’s Alcohol Behaviour Change is encouraging women to “Drop a Glass Size” in 2012.

Figures in the Scottish Health Survey show that around 38 per cent of women regularly exceed sensible drinking guidelines. An estimated 1 in 30 female deaths in Scotland is alcohol-related.

The campaign encourages people to make small changes to the way they drink such as alternating alcohol with soft drinks or water, and having two alcohol-free days a week.
