Alcohol Test

Cutting back, stopping for a bit or quitting drinking is one of the most important steps you can take to improve your health.  And there are lots of benefits associated with reducing your alcohol intake. The most important is the reduced risk of harm to your health, but there are are also other benefits that may help improve your general well-being and happiness.

Some of these improvements include brighter mood, better sleep, better concentration, more energy, slimmer waist-line, better sex life, healthier skin, improved mental health, lower blood pressure and less chance of liver disease and various types of cancer.

Begin your transformation to improved health by completing the Alcohol Test (AUDIT, Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test) below which will measure and identify if you are engaging in hazardous or harmful patterns of alcohol consumption.  The test was developed by the World Health Organisation as a simple method of screening for excessive drinking.  It also provides a framework for intervention to help hazardous and harmful drinkers reduce or cease alcohol consumption and thereby avoid the harmful consequences of their drinking.
