A Good Night Out With Alcohol

Alcohol remains the No.1 drug of choice in N. Ireland.

Meeting up with friends for a drink can be a great way to relax and have a good time. As we head towards the hospitality sector reopening after lock down there will be more opportunity to get out and enjoy ourselves.

We would like to share a few tips so you don't end up like Chardonnay,

  • Know your limits - drinking sensibly can make for a great night, drinking beyond your limits can lead to a night you would rather forget
  • Drink slowly, alternate with food and/or water to keep hydrated and slow alcohol absorption
  • Alcohol is a depressant – it can affect your reason, judgement and coordination, and slows down your reaction time and may increase risk
  • Know how you are getting home and have a fully charged phone with you
  • Look out for your friends
  • Never leave your drink unattended
