Think you know what it takes to avoid a blackout?
Find yourself wobbling around like a cross-eyed penguin? That’s because alcohol dehydrates your brain. Keep your night fun, not dumb. Take it slow and drink water.
Piecing together clues from last night? Because alcohol is a depressant, it can prevent your brain from creating long-term memories. Add water between drinks to help you avoid blacking out.
DRUNK YOU goes crazy without food. Eating slows the absorption of booze, giving you more time to enjoy the night's fun. Foods that are super high in protein are the best. Just make sure you eat them BEFORE you start drinking.
When you’re sick, you’re often dehydrated, so alcohol can have a stronger effect. So if you choose to go out when sick, keep it light and drink extra water.
