Alcohol At Parties
can help you relax and feel more confident. But this can lead to poor decisions. It also slows your nervous system so you become uncoordinated, have slow reflexes, and have trouble thinking clearly.
So, how can you drink while staying safe?
- Drink water or soft drinks between alcoholic drinks. And think about drinking low alcohol drinks, and avoiding big glasses or bottles.
- Eat before and while drinking, your body will take longer to absorb the alcohol.
- Watch that no-one tops up your drink without you realising, you may end up drinking more than you had intended.
- If you are feeling drunk or tipsy, switch to non-alcoholic drinks to give your body some time to process the alcohol you have drunk.
