Contest

Deborah Crawford of Midland and Matt Davis of Tottenham were the two lucky winners of an iPad 2, part of the How Many Drinks contest designed to raise awareness about the link between alcohol and chronic disease. The howmanydrinks blog, facebook and twitter were all used as part of a campaign to highlight the low-risk drinking guidelines and the connection between drinking beyond those guidelines and chronic disease. Congratulations to Deborah and Matt!

  1. Very interested in entering the contest, can’t seem to find the first quiz though, not sure if this might be because I am trying to access it from my blackberry though. A little direction would be much appreciated. Thank-you
