Alcohol Poisoning

  • 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!
