Stay with your pack on a night out

You’re safer on a night out if you stick with your friends.

Don't go lonewolf

Going ‘lone wolf’ by wandering off from your mates can lead to trouble.

Drinking alcohol can make us more vulnerable or prone to accidents. The more you drink, the less you’ll be able to spot dangerous situations so you're more likely to do something risky.

How does alcohol affect you?

As your Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) rises, so does the risk of accidents. Alcohol affects your body’s responses. It slows down your brain which can mean you’re more likely to have an accident.

Drinking alcohol can:
  • Affect our judgement and reasoning
  • Slow down our reactions
  • Upset our sense of balance and coordination
  • Impair our vision and hearing
  • Make us lose concentration and feel drowsy.
You can be more likely to:
  • Lose your keys or phone
  • Fall over or hurt yourself
  • Get in a fight or argument
  • Wander into traffic

Keep your pack safe

  1. Whatsapp: Keep in touch on the night and check everyone got home OK by making a ‘night out’ Whatsapp group
  2. Meeting point: If the club doesn’t have WIFI or you can’t get a signal agree an easy place to meet up
  3. Stick together: Staying together is the best way to make the most of your night out
