Have you ever wondered if you can save your alcohol points and “splurge” on the weekend or on a special occasion?
Some people think if they’ve abstained all week they can go all out drinking on the weekend, but experts say this doesn’t work.
In fact this could put your health at risk.
The Australian Government Department of Health said drinking no more than 4 standard drinks on any one occasion reduces your risk of alcohol related injury.
For females, more than 4 drinks on one occasion is considered binge drinking. For males binge drinking is more than six drinks and as we know binge drinking can lead to any number of problems.
