You should try some of these methods if you take more than 14 units of alcohol a week on a regular basis.
It is the same as consuming ten small-sized glasses of wine with low alcoholic content or 6 pints of beer with regular alcoholic content when you consume 14 units.

The following are the immediate benefits of minimizing alcohol consumption:
Cutting back in the long term can improve:
Mood - it is well-known that a strong link exists between drinking heavily; depression and hangovers which can often make you feel anxious and low. Abstaining from drinking alcohol would do a lot good for you because when you are depressed, drinking won't help.
Sleep - you may suffer from insomnia due to alcohol consumption. Despite the ability of alcohol of helping people sleep quickly, it can also disturb your sleep patterns and prevent you from sleeping deeply. Therefore, cutting down on alcohol should give you the feeling of having rested adequately when you wake up.
Behavior - Drinking Can Affect Your Judgment and Behavior. Under the influence of heavy drinking, your reasoning and calm may be lost. For frequent high-risk alcohol consumers, amnesia can become an issue in the long run.
Heart - Cardiomegaly (enlarged heart) can develop due to high-risk alcohol consumption over an extended period of time. When you quit consuming alcohol, this problem can be prevented from becoming serious, otherwise, there is nothing that can be done to cure it.
Your immune system could be damaged by chronic alcoholism. Infectious diseases usually attack heavy drinkers much more easily.
