How much alcohol is too much?

Updated: Apr 10

Like many people, you may enjoy an occasional drink and the pleasant effects of a little alcohol. However, you may also wonder at times if you are drinking too much, in terms of the effect that alcohol is having upon your health or quality of life. To genuinely enjoy the use of alcohol, you need to know you are drinking in a way that does no harm to you or anyone else. Harm may be in the form of problems that are arising in relation to work, finances, health, or relationships. In this post, you'll find a resource that can help you take a closer look at how much you're drinking and how to reduce your risks when drinking.

The Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction has published Canada's Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines to assist Canadians in moderating their alcohol intake and to reduce negative alcohol-related behavioural and health consequences.
