This topic promotes safe use of alcohol and looking out for one another. Contrary to popular opinion there are limits to how much alcohol we can cope with. It's really not 'big' to drink until you lose control. By being good to yourself and being a good friend you can take back control. Are you ready to learn how?



 The Influence of Alcohol

Alcohol is part of our cultural life from celebrating a big occasion to enjoying a night out. If we don't watch our limits and watch out for each other, the fun can quickly turn and we can find ourselves in serious danger. 

Discover ways to make sure that the next morning, it's only the laughs we remember.
