Reducing your alcohol intake

Having a drink in company can be a pleasant way to relax. However, you may wish to consider limiting your alcohol as this may cause you to become more confused. Also, it may not be safe for you to drink alcohol if you are taking certain medicines. Ask your GP for advice if you have any concerns. If you have dementia related to past alcohol use you should not drink alcohol.

In the UK, men and women are advised not to regularly drink more than 14 units a week.
