 :: Top ten ways to turn down a drink  :: Safety Tips  ::
 :: How much is too much? :: Handling a medical emergency  ::
My first DUI  ::

You're of legal age and you plan to drink...fine, but:

  1. Set a "Party Safe" goal for how many drinks you are going to have.
    Tell a friend the limit, count your drinks and stick to your goal.
  2. Remember the word HALT. Don't drink if you are Hungry, Angry,
    Lonely or Tired.
  3. Don't gulp your drinks; you'll get drunk faster. Drink slowly and make it last.
  4. Don't drink on an empty stomach. Always eat before you drink...a full meal.
  5. Alternate between alcohol and non-alcohol beverages. Bring your own non-alcohol drink.
  6. Don't encourage or approve reckless and irresponsible behavior caused by intoxication.
  7. Before you celebrate, designate. Remember to alternate the designated driver spot with friends.
  8. Remember, saying "No" is absolutely fine.
