Drink tips

  • Know your limits.
  • Space Your Drinks—e.g. one per hour (two at the most). Know that all drinks are not created equal. For example, a Long Island Iced Tea may have as many as 3 to 7 shots of alcohol, which can take as long as 2 to 6 hours to metabolize.
  • Don't drink on an empty stomach. You are more likely to get sick and less likely to be able to control yourself when you do drink on an empty stomach.
  • Keep count of the amount of drinks you've drank.
  • Don't drink and drive--Plan ahead for transportation; Use public transport or call a taxi!
  • Stay with people you know and trust, but BEWARE, people's personalities are affected by alcohol use!
  • Alcohol and sex don't mix! The mixture often leads to humiliation, regret, embarrassment, STD's, pregnancy and sexual assault!
  • Never accept a drink from someone you don't know--You don't know what they could have put in it!
  • Pregnant or think you might be? Alcohol goes straight from a mother's bloodstream to the unborn baby causing birth defects and other abnormalities.
  • Please don't use alcohol to make yourself feel better when you are depressed--talk it out, go for a walk, listen to music--make some connections. Alcohol will not solve your problems--even if it helps you escape for a few hours. Look at all the people and resources around you--there must be someone you can tell your story to!
  • Never go drink on an empty stomach.
  • You decide how much you drink, not your friends.
  • Make it last longer.
  • Don’t mix the drinks and always eat between them.
  • Oily food – less alcohol absorption.
  • When dizzy, take a break.
  • When feeling sick, go throw up.
  • Careful what you combine! Pay attention to the warning labels on prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Combining alcohol and marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine, speed or other drugs can be very dangerous, due to interaction effects.
  • Make sure you eat!
  • Purchase your alcohol in adavance:
  • This way at least you will realize when you go over the top how the heck you got so plastered. You will also realize you are unable to drive, and that you probably shouldn’t take on any sort of responsibility.
  • Watch out for your friends.

  • You may already know that a healthy lifestyle involves balancing many different elements - staying physically active, consuming a balanced diet, getting enough rest - and even keeping a positive attitude.

Some beverages can help you perform your best. Others can help you feel energized or help you relax, while others provide pure enjoyment, satisfying your natural taste for sweetness -- with or without calories.
