How many of these do you know?
Plan a safe way home.
Before you leave for your night out, figure out how you'll get home. Keep some money for a taxi or bus fare.
Know your limits.
Before going out, decide on a drink limit that's right for you and stick to it.
Have some non-alcoholic drinks. Take a pass on shots and top-ups. Avoid drinking games.
Stick to your limit.
Measure and pour your own drinks, and keep them standard size. Once you reach your limit, switch to pop or water.
Eat before or while you drink.
Your body absorbs alcohol more slowly when your stomach is full. That’s why it’s best to eat before or while you drink instead of after.
Make sure no one adds anything to your drink. Get your own, drink your own, watch your own.
