Stick to Your Limits with Alcohol

Smart Dillos keep to their limits at the saloon. They know that one standard serving of alcohol is 12 oz. of 5% beer, 5 oz. of 12% wine, and 1.5 oz. of 40% distilled spirits. 

Setting a lower-risk limit for MALES* means no more than 4 drinks on any single day. For FEMALES* this means no more than 3 drinks on any single day. 

More information on understanding limits and reducing negative outcomes can be found on the AOD Resources website. 

* The terms “Male” and “Female” are used due to the way alcohol affects the sexes differently on a biological basis. Research is too limited to provide specific guidance for transgender and intersex individuals.
