  1. Last Orders • Lesson Two Alcohol Strengths and Units

  2. What is a unit of alcohol? • A unit of alcohol is equivalent to: - Half a pint of beer/lager/cider 3.5% ABV. - One small glass of wine – 125mls 9% ABV. - One single spirits (pub measure) 40% ABV.

  3. What is Alcohol? • Alcoholic drinks consist mainly of flavoured water and ethyl alcohol (ethanol) • They are made by fermentation of fruits, vegetables or grains. • Ethyl alcohol on it’s own is a poison, so it is diluted in alcoholic drinks to make it safer to drink.

  17. Safer Drinking Limits • There is no safer drinking limit for under 18 year olds as their livers and brains are still developing • The healthiest choice for young people is not to drink any alcohol before 15 years, then only at low levels.

  18. Safer drinking limits for Adults • Men should not regularly drink more than 3 to 4 units a day • Women not more than 2 to 3 units a day • Regularly drinking over this can lead to long term liver and brain damage and other related health risks
