The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has called for a government review of the recommended weekly alcohol limits, following a study of 2000 adults that showed 50% disagree with official health guidelines.

The Chief Medical Officer currently advises people not to regularly drink more than 14 units a week.

But what is a unit? And how many are in each glass of wine or pint of beer you drink?

Always happy to help, we've been to the pub done some research into the units in different drinks. Scroll through the gallery above to find out how many you could be consuming
