You have consumed the recommended weekly alcohol intake for adults in the time it’s taken you to read this article, according to sources this evening.
Research shows that the wine glass in your hand has been refilled several times already, and continues to do so as the weekly limit disappears into your rear view mirror.
You join 2.5 million Brits who consume their weekly alcohol allowance in a single sitting, though few manage it as quickly as you do.
