Would you like to know how your drinking compares to others? Take this simple test to find out.
1 What was your drinking like during a typical week in the past year?
List roughly how many drinks you have on each day of a typical week and add up the total:
Be sure to estimate the number of "standard" drinks you usually have (it is important when you compare your drinking to others). Each of the drinks on the chart below have the same amount of alcohol in them and will all affect you in the same way.
2 Now compare your weekly total to that of others
How does your weekly average compare? Look at the pie charts below to find where your drinking fits with the rest of the adult population. For example, if you are a male who drinks 15 standard drinks per week, you drink more alcohol than 90 per cent of other men do.
A recent national survey looked at how much people drank in a week and how their drinking was affecting different areas of their lives. People were asked about their physical health, outlook on life, friends/social life, relationships with their spouses or partners and children, home life, financial position and work or studies. Not surprisingly, the results showed that the more people drank in a week, the greater the chance that the drinking was affecting more and more areas of their lives.
How likely are you to have problems as a result of your drinking? Look at the chart below to see where you fit.
