Kent's secret drinking problem: Take our online quiz

By KentOnline reporter



There are an estimated 327,000 Kent people drinking at increasing or higher risk levels of alcohol-related problems, and many don’t know that their drinking could be affecting their health.

You don’t have to be drinking alcohol all day every day for it to be an issue, even just a few drinks most nights can soon add up and can increase your risk of developing serious health problems such as cancer and high blood pressure.

Even the smallest of changes can have big impacts on your future health. Why not choose drinks with a lower alcohol content, drink a soft drink in between each alcoholic drink, or swap out the pint glasses for a smaller one?
