Buying smaller bottles didn’t have the same effect.

Cambridge University study author Dr. Eleni Mantzari, said: “It might seem like common sense, but it could have gone either way.

“People who drink from smaller glasses might think they could have another one or two because they’re small.”

But every household involved in the study saw their wine consumption drop by 500ml per month.

dr Mantzari said, “If you give people larger glasses, they tend to pour more and therefore drink more.”

The study, published in the journal Addiction, looked at how glass and bottle size changed drinking habits in 217 households, who typically down at least four 750ml bottles a month.

Heavy drinking is a major public health problem in the UK, with one in five adults reportedly drinking enough to increase their risk of developing liver disease and cancer.
