To prevent yourself or someone else from getting too intoxicated
Your best bet is not to drink, but if you do, limit your alcohol consumption.
Go with a friend who can help watch you and take you home if you've had too much.
Never accept a drink from someone you don’t know, or drink something that has no clear indication of the alcohol content.
ALWAYS KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DRINKING and HOW MUCH you've consumed.
Avoid drinking games, funnels, and other activities that get you drunk fast.
Don't attend parties at the houses of people you don't know. The bigger the party, the more likely things will get out of control.
Pace your drinks to only one an hour; consume water or other non-alcoholic beverages in between.
Make a decision before the party about how much you plan to drink, then count your drinks at the party, and stop according to your plan. Remember that a drink is not always just one drink, depends on the size of the glass or the pour. Standard Drink Info
