Moderate and Responsible Drinking
Guidelines by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services define moderate drinking as:
- no more than one drink a day for most women
- no more than two drinks a day for most men
Moderate drinking is best defined as drinking that does not cause problems for you, your family or society. If drinking any amount of alcohol causes you to act in a manner contrary to your values, or creates distress or risk for others, you are not drinking responsibly.
