Moderate drinking can mean different things to different people, and the borderline between "social" drinking and "problem" drinking can be fuzzy indeed.

A useful guideline for those in good health is that moderate drinking means the consumption in any one-day of up to:

Men - 2 pints of beer or 2 double spirits or ½ standard size bottle of wine.

Women - 1 pint of beer or 1 double spirit or ¼ standard size bottle of wine.
