BE KIND TO YOURSELF
AND OTHERS.

BE KIND TO YOUR SOUL.
You may have noticed that alcohol can lower inhibitions. If that makes an introvert a little more open
and approachable, cool. But if that makes someone aggressive and violent, not so cool.
Take an honest personal assessment of your response to alcohol to determine if it could actually be
harming your relationships. Part of that equation involves intimacy, since alcohol can negatively affect sexual function. And if you're hoping to start a family, excessive alcohol use can lead to decreased sperm count
in men and to infertility in women, as well as harming a
developing baby in the womb.
And if you're already responsible for children or
other dependents, avoid drinking so much that you
can't ensure their safety. In drinking moderately,
you're also putting yourself up as a positive role model, demonstrating that alcohol enjoyment and alcohol
abuse are not synonymous.

legally intoxicated? For example, a 120-pound woman can theoretically reach the intoxicated threshold
with two drinks in an hour; three drinks per hour for a
140-pound man.
But your threshold-for becoming intoxicated or
for making terrible decisions-may be even lower! Do
you go out drinking with friends and have so much fun
that you totally forget your limits? After a drink or two,
do you begin doing things that you regret later? Does
one drink make you feel so good that you just have to
get that next one, and that next one, and ...
To be responsible, don't rely on the legal definition.
Know your personal limits. In addition, if your family
has a history of alcohol or other dependence problems,
be especially conscious of the effects of alcohol-and
maybe even consider abstaining.

BE TRUE TO YOURSELF.
Create customized tricks that can allow you to enjoy the benefits of alcohol without succumbing to the
disadvantages. For example:
* Make a plan for the evening-how much you'll
drink drink, your transportation arrangements, etc.-
and stick to it.
