The Guidelines were originally developed in 2011, with a focus on adults between the ages of 25 and 65. The Guidelines currently recommend no more than two drinks a day for women (maximum 10 per week) and three drinks a day for men (maximum 15 per week), with an extra drink allowed on special occasions.
