Easy steps to take to make sure your brilliant nights out don’t end badly.
Don’t go overboard
Staying within the lower risk guidelines means you’ll be more likely to have your wits about you, and be able to spot dangerous situations.
If you do drink too much, you could easily get into trouble. The more drunk you are, the more likely you are to do something risky.
Staying within the daily guidelines will mean you’re more likely to walk away from a sticky situation than lashing out and ending up brawling on the pavement and getting yourself in trouble with the police.
Eating before you go out and drinking plenty of water will also help you not to get too drunk. Aim to drink a soft drink or a glass of water after each alcoholic drink when you’re in the pub. Have a look at our unit calculator to find out how many units are in your favourite drinks.
