How alcohol affects your body
Alcohol affects your body in a number of ways and can impact on your short and long term health. Watch the videos about alcohol and its impact on the heart, liver, weight gain, erectile dysfunction and mental health below for more information.
The more you drink, the greater the chance of developing alcohol-related problems. You can keep your risk low by drinking within the Chief Medical Officers' (CMO) low risk drinking guidelines. Your risk of harm from alcohol is high if you are a man drinking over 50 units a week, or a woman drinking over 35 units a week. You can visit our support services page for help cutting back.
