As popular venues that serve alcoholic drinks, pubs are often the places that groups of people meet to socialise and enjoy themselves over a pint or glass of wine. Drinking responsibly in a pub is one way that accidents can be avoided, not just to you but to others as well. Read on to find out how Accident Advice Helpline can advise and support you to make a personal injury compensation claim, if you become injured through no fault of your own.
Drinking responsibly in a pub
Binge drinking is a term that is used when large quantities of alcohol are consumed in a short space of time. Many people succumb to regular binge drinking with disastrous effects not only for their health, but their personal safety too. Binge drinking is common at parties, social events and in pubs as well where people may feel that they need a drink to relax, fit in and enjoy themselves with people who may be unfamiliar to them.
It is important to acknowledge that being a binge drinker is not the same as being an alcoholic or being alcohol dependant. However, this doesn’t mean that it is not a serious condition with consequences for your health and lifestyle.
People who binge drink tend to drink alcohol quickly over a short space of time in order to get drunk. They may lose count of how much alcohol they have consumed, or they may feel that they need more alcohol than they drank previously to get drunk, as their body may be more tolerant of the level of alcohol in their system.
Consuming large amounts of alcohol in a short space of time increases the level of alcohol in the bloodstream dramatically to dangerous levels which can have a serious impact on a person’s ability to make decisions and act appropriately.
Unfortunately, the effects of binge drinking can mean that dangerous choices are made. These can include deciding to drive whilst under the influence of alcohol, or lose their inhibitions about sexual behaviour with people they do not know.
Drinking responsibly in a pub is the responsibility of not only the person who is purchasing and consuming the alcohol, but also the landlord who is licensed to serve the alcoholic beverages as well.
