10 Know your limit!

11 What percent of drownings are alcohol related? 1 in 3

12  Alcohol can affect both motor skills and your perception of the world around you.  To prevent injury, avoid swimming and other physical activities when under the influence of alcohol.

13 Vomiting is the body’s natural defense to prevent more alcohol from being digested

14  If you come across someone that is puking ensure: ◦ They are lying on their side to prevent choking ◦ Contact CUSERT or medical assistance ◦ Don’t leave them unattended

15 How many drinks do you need to consume in a night to be considered a binge drinker? 5 for men, 4 for women

16  Several factors influence how alcohol will affect a person: age, gender, physical condition, amount of food eaten and other drugs or medicines taken.  Make sure you don’t binge drink  Space out your drinks over several hours  Markers, bottle caps, can tabs Know your limit and when to stop.

17  Drinking alcohol in combination with carbonated beverages can increase the speed at which your body absorbs alcohol.  Mixing caffeine with alcohol increases the risk of heart rhythm problems

18  Recent research has shown that students who mix alcohol with energy drinks are more likely to suffer alcohol related consequences  These students were more likely to be hurt or injured, require medical attention and were even more likely to ride with a driver who was under the influence of alcohol.

19  Alcohol is metabolized by the liver into an acetate that can be used as a source of energy  Alcohol holds very little nutritional value and the acetate from alcohol is used immediately and cannot be stored for future energy use.  Because your body uses the fuel from alcohol before it uses fats and carbohydrates, you may not metabolize (burn) the fats and carbohydrates you would normally. This may increase the amount of fat in your body.

20 E-Chug is an anonymous online survey that allows students to track their alcohol consumption and learn about some of the financial and physical impacts their drinking habits have.

21  Compares the calories that you drink in a typical month to its equivalent in cheeseburgers  Puts the amount you spend on alcohol into context by comparing it to other things you buy i.e. a new laptop or a spring break vacation  Estimates your Blood Alcohol Level during a typical week of drinking  Explains if you are at high risk of developing future alcohol dependence problems  Strategies to help cut down on drinking

22  Learn if you are at risk of developing future alcohol related problems  Compare your drinking habits to the national habits  Learn what impact binge drinking has on the body  Learn what healthy drinking is for your body type  Learn how alcohol interacts with common medications
