Low Risk Drinking Tips

  • Abstain from drinking if you are under 21 years of age and always consider your limits before you begin drinking. Eat a full meal before beginning to drink and sip drinks slowly, rather than tossing them back or binging.
  • Drink no more than 2 alcoholic beverages a day (men). Drink no more than 1 alcoholic beverage a day (women). Space drinks over a span of time to slow the rate of intoxication. Drink non-alcoholic drinks between alcoholic drinks.
  • Drink diluted drinks such as: beer, wine or mixed drinks versus shots and avoid spiked drinks. Abstain from drinking alcohol when taking medication or other drugs.
  • Do not lose sight of your drink throughout the evening and drink for taste not for the sole purpose of getting drunk.
  • Be familiar with the laws regarding possession of alcoholic beverages and drugs (drinking laws at traveled destinations may differ from U.S. State laws).
  • Do not get involved in illegal drugs while visiting countries outside the U.S. (violations of certain drug laws may have severe penalties, including incarceration or death penalties).
  • DO NOT DRIVE AFTER DRINKING. Choose a designated driver or public transportation.
