  • Drink slowly: You can legally drink. However, you still have the rest of your life to do so. So don’t rush. Drinking quickly in a hefty amount will harm you. Each person has different strengths and alcohol will act differently on each of us. You should know your limit and refuse a drink when you can’t handle it.
  • Eat before you drink. It is never a good idea to drink alcohol on an empty stomach. You should also drink water occasionally as well to prevent dehydration.
  • Never drive after you consume alcohol. The designated driver should remain sober. Alternatively, you can consider taking the taxi instead.
  • Never leave a drink unattended. If you decide to go to a club or bar, remember to keep an eye on your drink. Also, always go with your group of friends as well.
