One's drunk, awake: knowing one should drink less? (6-9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

health-conscious

Here is my best explanation:

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

'one's drunk awake' is the subsidiary indication.

'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'='healthconscious'
