Here is my best explanation:

'knowing one should drink less?' is the definition.

'one's drunk awake' is the wordplay.
'one's drunk' becomes 'health' (ref to 'drinking someone's health' in a toast).
'awake' becomes 'conscious' ('conscious' can be similar in meaning to 'awake').
'health'+'conscious'='HEALTH-CONSCIOUS'
