Being around alcohol can be dangerous for a number of reasons. Drinking too much can pose a real threat to your personal health, not just because of the alcohol itself, but also because of how alcohol changes your awareness to the things around you, lowers your inhibitions and makes you more likely to take risks. If you are drinking in a pub or bar then you may also face danger from other people who have been drinking. Here are some tips on remaining safe when you are out for the night.
- Drink in groups. Try not to go out on your own, or with just one friend. If you get separated after you have been drinking then you are in much more danger of getting into an accident or being attacked.
- Never leave your drink unattended. Drinks can easily be spiked if you are not paying attention to them. Many people leave their drinks alone whilst they go to smoke, or to talk to someone else. Always keep your drink in your sight or, even better, in your hand.
- Get a cab. If you have been drinking then you should never get into your car at the end of the night. It is also a bad idea to try to walk home alone, so think about taking a good cab service’s phone number out with you, and plan on getting a cab home from your night out.
- Don’t get into confrontations. When people have been drinking, they tend to be much more confrontational than they would usually be. This can cause fights, which can lead to serious injuries or even death. Don’t allow yourself to provoke a fight, by walking away if someone is trying to fight with you.
