Christmas Cheer

With only 13 days left till Christmas, I've been working on a couple of articles about alcohol and how to stay safe.

The first article gives tips on how to stay safe while still enjoying the Holiday celebrations.

I used to think that if I went out and just had one glass of wine, I'd be consuming one unit of alcohol. Since doing the research on my articles, I've realised that this isn't necessarily the case. Wine can come in strengths that range from 7% to 14%. The bottle of red wine that I currently have open is 13.5%. The guidelines are based on a 125 ml glass of wine containing 8% alcohol. An equivalent amount of my wine would contain just under 1.7 units of alcohol! I've included the calculations in my second article.

Just click on the links to see the two articles.

Be safe this Christmas!

Hi Dabrah,

First of all, thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment.

We need to learn of or be reminded of all the safety rules not only this time of the year but all year long.
