Drinking? Tips to keep yourself safe

When drinking alcohol it’s important to keep safe and look after yourself and others.

Check out the tips below:

Pace yourself

  • Keep track of how much alcohol you’re drinking. If you’re at a party, wait until your glass is empty before you refill – otherwise you’ll lose track of what you’ve drunk.
  • Avoid mixing your drinks.
  • Make them singles not doubles.
  • Start later.
  • Try a “spacer” instead of a “chaser”. Make every second drink a non-alcoholic one.
  • Take smaller sips.
  • Put your glass down between sips.

Look after yourself

  • Always make sure to eat before and while you’re drinking
  • Know your limit. Learn to refuse a drink.
  • Take a break from drinking.
  • Don’t drink and drive. Nominate a designated driver with a full licence who can drive you and your mates home and keep a sober eye on the party.
  • Plan your night. Plan ahead, arrange a safe way home, a place to stay and let someone know where you are at all times.
  • Look out for yourself and your mates.
  • Never accept a drink from someone you don’t know.
