Drinking can be a fun part of a night out, so always look out for each other: enjoy a great meal before and continue to eat throughout the evening; stay hydrated with water; get home safely and stay out of risky situations.
But if you or someone you’re with drinks too much, the fun can quickly end. No one wants to be the person that had to be looked after all night, had everyone worried – or worse.
If you find yourself in this situation with a friend, here are some steps you can take.
