    People in their 30s and 40s are worse than those in their 20s at knowing when to stop drinking, a poll has suggested. Once past the age of 30 the body loses muscle and water and gains fat - making the effects of alcohol more pronounced.
    A survey by YouGov found almost half of 30 to 50-year-olds confessed to drinking too much at times and had not learned to stick to their limits.

    The poll was commissioned as part of a government campaign to encourage responsible drinking over Christmas.
