IT'S that time of year again … we're nearing Christmas and that means even more boozing than usual.

While most of us know how to drink more in the festive season, do you really know just how much you are drinking?

Between the Christmas parties, family gatherings, catch ups with friends and the hard-to-resist temptation of mulled wine at a Christmas market, it does not take long for your alcohol units to skyrocket.

Luckily, Public Health England and Drinkaware have come up with a cell phone online calculator that will tell you if you drink too much.

The quiz starts off asking about your age and how much you drink each week.

It looks like many glasses of different types of tipple – beer, wine, spirits – you had that week.

You'll be asked the days of the week you usually drink.

Once you've done it, you'll want to share it with other people in the country, and how many units you drink.

It is, therefore, like you many calories that is, which is fairly shocking if you drink a lot.

14 units of alcohol per week.

That's the equivalent of six pints or medium glasses of wine … as much as you think, is it?

  At the end of the quiz you'll be told if you are putting your health at risk or not

Drinking too much of your favorite tipple comes with a range of both short and long-term risks.

People who binge drinks are more likely to engage in risky behavior – and that's how accidents happen.

And long-term alcohol misuse can lead to heart disease, stroke, liver disease and some types of cancer, including bowel and liver cancer.
