The powers that be have now worked out that we have all been lying about the amount we drink due to twice as much being purchased as is drunk. Fair one. This means that all the BMA 'recommendations' are invalid, as we're all drinking twice as much as they thought but 'achieving' the same health results, ie it takes two times as much alcohol to fuck us up. Therefore it is perfectly safe to maintain, or possibly increase, one's alcohol consumption to no ill effect. I think.
