DO you know what a unit of alcohol is and how many units you drink a week?
And how many teenagers are drinking alcohol in Kirklees every week?
Now help is at hand to let you understand the risks.
Kirklees and Calderdale councils and the health trusts are aiming to get people talking about alcohol consumption during National Alcohol Awareness Week.
Simone Arratoonian, Health Improvement Practitioner Specialist at NHS Kirklees, said: “People seem to love to talk about drinking in a light-hearted way, we are trying to encourage more people to have conversations with their friends or family about how much they are drinking, and how often – and whether they think it could affect them or their families.
“We don’t talk enough about how drinking has become more acceptable, and what this means for our families.”
It has been revealed that around one in five 14-year-olds living in the Kirklees area drink alcohol weekly or more.
But legally, can they?
