Drinking can be fun but at the same time it can become dangerous too. There are ways in which you can enjoy your drink responsibly. Here’s a list of tips to help you keep yourself safe while drinking:
1.Never drink and drive: That’s the most basic rule for your safety. Never ever drink and drive, even if you’ve had only one glass of your favorite alcohol. If you are enjoying your drink, make sure you have someone sober to take you home. Else, take a cab.
2.Learn to relish: Quality matters more than quantity. Don’t gulp alcohol down your throat and end up being drunk. Instead, learn to relish your drink. That way you’ll drink less and enjoy more.
3.Don’t mix drugs and alcohol: That’s the worst thing you can do to yourself. Never ever make the mistake of mixing drugs with alcohol. Stay away from drugs completely. Don’t give in to peer pressure and take drugs while gulping down alcohol. It can prove fatal.
4.Be aware of what you are drinking: Don’t go for very strong alcoholic drinks. Enjoy mild ones so that you can enjoy yourself. Don’t simply drink anything that is being served. Be aware of what you are drinking so that you can decide how much you should have.
5.Never accept drinks from strangers: That’s because it’s very easy to mix rape drugs in drinks. Don’t accept drinks from strangers for your own safety. Enjoy yourself but remain cautious too.
6.Learn ‘Drinking Discipline’: You should be disciplined enough to know when you should stop. The moment you become too drunk you realize that you are not having a good time. Besides, when you let yourself become that drunk, you make yourself vulnerable and others may take advantage of your drunkenness. So learn some drinking discipline before taking that sip.
7.Go very slow: One of the best ways to keep yourself safe while drinking is to go very slow with your drink. Flaunt it but don’t gulp it. Chat with friends, dance and enjoy. Every now and then, take a sip. Make it last as long as you can.
Drinking occasionally and responsibly is acceptable but let it not become a habit for you. Don’t let alcohol take control of your life. Tame it, control it and enjoy it– responsibly and safely!
