Do you find that you need a glass of wine or a pint after a long day of work? You might want to rethink that after a new study says one drink a day can shorten your life.

Experts are now changing their minds regarding light drinking. A previous study from Denmark said drinking three to four times a week was linked to a lower risk of type 2 diabetes.

Now, after studying 600,000 participants, researches have discovered that drinking five to 10 alcoholic drinks a week was likely to shorten a person's life by up to six months.

Raise that number to 18 drinks or more a week, and you're looking at cutting off five years.

Do you like to unwind with a drink? How about a boozy brunch? Would these results make you change your habits?
