THINK AGAIN before you drink another drop!

We would encourage everyone to consider the consequences of drinking too much alcohol when out during the evening, over the weekend and in particular over Bank Holidays. We want everyone to have a good time while staying safe, but believe in a sensible approach to drinking and want people to respect themselves by being responsible. Under the influence of alcohol you are more likely to find yourself in a vulnerable situation.

Enjoy your night out but look after yourself and your friends – ensure that you and your friends look out for one another and you all get home safely. Pre book safe transport home and don’t accept lifts from strangers.

• Under the influence of alcohol you are more likely to find yourself in a vulnerable situation.
• Being arrested could result in a criminal record or worst still you could be injured.

• Drink too much and you are likely to feel disorientated.
• Under the influence of alcohol you are more likely to find yourself in a vulnerable situation.
• Recognise when you are drinking too quickly, sometimes you might just be thirsty rather than wanting an alcoholic drink.
You know your limit – stick to it!
• Never leave your drinks unattended; even soft drinks can be spiked.
• Don’t ruin the weekend by overdoing it on Friday or Saturday nights.
