Alcohol and Drugs Safety
If you use alcohol or drugs, please use them sensibly.
If you are heavily under their influence you will be much less able to look after yourself:
- Your may be unable to move your body, so you would be less able to get away from a dangerous situation or stop something from happening that you don’t want.
- You may be less able to make clear decisions about how far you want to go sexually with someone.
- You may make unwise decisions, such as walking home alone, or getting a lift with someone you don’t know very well.
- Alcohol dulls your instincts and awareness of danger.
If someone is trying to get you drunk or to use drugs, think about why this may be – what is in it for them?
