Alcohol Awareness Week - Drinking Games Top Tips

Rated 5/5 (1 person). Log in to rate.

We want you to have a good time and enjoy yourselves… but think about what you drink. Below are some top tips on how to avoid heavy drinking games:

  1. Opt out: Choose not to get involved in drinking games and make it clear you’d rather be in control of the amount of alcohol you drink.
  2. You can say 'NO!', if you don't want to be forced into drinking something you can say 'no'. Don't ever feel pressured into doing something you do not wish too.
  3. Think differently: From paintballing to preparing a shared meal, there’s plenty of positive ways to bring people together that don’t involve drinking games.
  4. Look out for others: If friends are playing drinking games check they’re OK – and help them opt out if they’ve drunk too much alcohol.
  5. Keep tabs on your drinking: Download Drinkaware’s: Track and Calculate Units App to keep tabs on how much alcohol you’re drinking – its free!
