- Don't leave the person alone, for safety reasons.
- Don't give any drugs or medication (not even aspirin!) to the person to try to sober him or her up.
- Don't give the person food in an attempt to "absorb the alcohol." This will increase the risk of vomiting.
- Don't give the person coffee, tea, or other liquid stimulants. You'll just have a wide-awake, agitated drunk person.
- Don't give the person a cold shower. He or she could fall, or pass out and be injured in the process.
- Don't try to exercise the person in the hope of "burning off the booze." This will not help and could cause injuries.
- Seek professional medical assistance: Contact Newman Regional Health 341-7710 or 911.
Tips For Safe Drinking
- Drink only if you want to. It's your choice, not your friends' choice.
- Don't drink on an empty stomach
- Pace your drinking, it's not a race.
- Don't take drugs (legal or illegal) while drinking. The combination of the alcohol and the even "harmless" drugs like aspirin can be deadly.
- If you order a mixed drink, watch the person mix it.
- If you leave your drink for any reason get a new one.
- Make sure the cup the bartender uses have been stacked upside-down (so that nothing could be sitting in the bottom of the cup).
- Never drink anything out of a common punch bowl.
- If someone offers to get you a drink, go up to the bar with them to accept it.
- Be wary about accepting drinks from anyone you don't know well or long enough to trust.
- Use a designated driver. If you need one call Corky's Cab! 343-8310
Remember: Responsible alcohol use means that you won’t be sorry in the morning!
