October Tips of the Month: Quick Facts About Alcohol
  • Know the law. Alcohol is illegal to buy or possess if you are under the age of 21.

  • Get the facts right. One 12-ounce beer has as much alcohol as a 1.5-ounce shot of whiskey or a 5-ounce glass wine.

  • Stay informed. Wine coolers look like juice sparklers but they have just as much alcohol as a 12-ounce beer.

  • Be aware of the risks. Drinking increases the risk of injury. Car crashes, falls, burns, drowning, and suicide are all linked to alcohol and other drug use.

  • Keep your edge. Alcohol can ruin your looks, give you bad breath, and make you gain weight.

  • Play it safe. Drinking can lead to intoxication and even death.

  • Do the smart thing. Drinking puts your health, education, family ties, and social life at risk.

  • Be a real friend. If you know someone with a drinking problem, be part of the solution. Urge your friend to get help.

  • Remain alert. Stay clear on claims that alcohol means glamour and adventure. Stay clear on what's real and what's illusion.

  • Sweep away the myths. Having a designated driver is no excuse to drink. Drinking only at home, or sticking only to beer does not make drinking any "safer."
