Find out what your drinking levels mean

When life gets stressful, uncertain or lonely people may drink more than they would normally. The Lower My Drinking quiz lets you quickly check if you're drinking too much.

You can find out what your drinking levels mean by completing a quick 10 question assessment on how much alcohol you drink.

You will then get an overall drinking score to highlight if your drinking could be affecting your health.

There is a range of support available both online and in person if this is the case.
